That's a nice place, belonged to Mr. Reyes for a while, he kept it clean. Didn't do much on the yard. Palm gets a little more traffic than the inner streets. Speed-bumps keep most drivers civil. Since we've been here we've really enjoyed living in the area. Love it? Okay, yeah, I can say that. It's central to every place we want to frequent, all a short walk, bike, bus, light rail or drive. Yup, I've walked and biked the streets here for nearly decade and not a single incident, other than the time I fell off the bike while dashing over to the convenience store at 5AM for some milk, shoulder hurt for months. I bike-n-lightrail often, I bike to school 4 times a week. Yeah, the flavor of the neighborhood is more urban, that's what it is. If you think that equates to crime, that's perception, our reality has not been such. How has the neighborhood changed over time? Not a whole lot in last three years within the Haver nest, with a bit of activity in surrounding major streets in the form of new businesses and a few clean-ups. An older mobile home park demolished, that sort of stuff. Frankly, I think all the Havers would be sold if Banks weren't holding up the process. Real estate agents aren't keeping those for-sale homes clean. I'll be taking a hoe and rake to the place across the street this weekend before the weeds seed, want to join me? Free beer.
