"Busy -- Not for those needing quiet"
Personally, I loved living off of S. Westnedge. There were a lot of things close by and there was a good neighborhood vibe. I lived right next to I94 so the noise pollution was double what it is on any other part of Westnedge. However, this wasn't really a problem for me, but for those seeking peace and quiet this is definitely not the area. Also, as with a lot of main street areas, there are the occasional drug problems, however it is not as prominent as you might think being on a main road. Overall great living location if you're either just starting out on your own, or just beginning to start a family. The closeness of shops, schools, and grocery stores will make things easier on the budget!
