"This area is going downhill..."
Years ago, this street was beautiful. It had a really nice high school, decent apartment complexes, and easy access to restaurants, shopping, and gas stations. In recent years it has gone downhill fast. The apartment complexes are no longer the safe family environment they used to be, and the high school leaves a lot to be desired. This street still provides a quick link between two major roads, but other than that, it isn't good for much. The high school now has a police sub-station on the premises, and the few retail stores that are there leave much to be desired.
