I live in a street just outside the city centre. It's about a 25 minute walk to the shops. My street is on a very busy road. (Its the bus route) My neighbours are friendly but tend to keep themselves to themselves. The crime rate is average Id say.
I live in a typical terraced house. I have a nice large garden, which is perfect for my cats. Further up the road there are a lot of council houses. The people are okay, but there is a mix of people, like single parents, young parents, different races, people with good jobs, people with no jobs etc. I havent encountered any problems with the youngsters as such. But people over here arent very accepting of somebody different, I dont mean everybody just the odd few who make life difficult for people. Some years ago my husband almost got beaten up for being different. He use to wear a long black coat and his hair is quite long. That particular night he had bottles thrown at him, he was lucky to get away. Although this happened in another neighbourhood I use to live in. Thankfully the people are not so bad here.
