    Crime & Safety: Recently, crime seems to have gone down. The most I see people get arrested for is dissorderly conduct (drunk from being at one of the local bars)

    Weather: There aren't many significant issue with weather. Mostly just rain would be an issue and even then there wouldn't be crazy flooding
    • 4
    Food & Drink: This area definitely has tons of great places to eat and drink whether it's for brunch, lunch, dinner, or a late night snack you will never go hungry. Lately, lots of different ethnic food places has been popping up; take a walk down the aveune and you'll find something of interest.
