I haven't had any issue with any age grade outside my circle
Nobody have complaints people speak and go about their day.
I have lived in Hyattsville for almost 4 years and very comfortable. I am still learning more about the area. I have an urban feel living here; proximity to shops, medical facilities, schools, malls , recreational centers and the USA capital DC. Its relatively safe and age friendly.
On the low side, social integration is lacking in my neighborhood. Many people here keep to themselves.
But generally I am okay with my city.
