    "I’ve lived in this neighborhood over 18 yrs. it’s fairly safe there have been break ins as some target semi quiet neighborhoods . I wish the city would invest in our side walks and roads as they do the upper north end of Madison ave. Being are taxes are excessively high. I do like the neighbors I know for the most part. The high school kids tend to dump trash in our yards as well as hide there bikes ( trespass) . The neighborhood is unique because of the melting pot of people living here. "
