On this street most of the residents are retired. As neighbors we look out for them and each other.


Most of my neighbors are retired and elderly. That was the main reason I deceided to buy a home here. We look out for each other. My neighborhood still sits on the front porch of their homes. Often my younger neighbors will bring me a plate when they BBQ. If we don't see someone in awhile we.walk across the street and check on them.


The most important schools are close by restaurants shopping centers grocery store the highway everything sewing so convenient


Finally, there may be safety concerns in this area. While it's not necessarily a dangerous neighborhood, it's always important to be aware of your surroundings and take precautions when walking alone at night. For seniors who may be more vulnerable, this could be a cause for concern.

Overall, while this neighborhood may be a great fit for some people, it's important to consider the specific needs of older friends and family members before making a decision.


Restaurants are really close by schools are close by transportation like the via bus is close by everything is close by
