Ex Resident says
My grandparents lived across the street since 1950 both lived there for up to 60 years. The house across the street has been a bunch of ghetto lowlife people who have no idea how to clean up after themselves. Wall to wall trash everywhere. Cars all over the yard driveway and street…. oil stains and RV’s parked along the hillside. You know people been dealing drugs for ages over there. Ever since the parents died who used to live there and let their son stay there that whole place has been nothing but trash! One of the main reasons we moved from the house across the street after it being in the family for over 68 years is because of those lowlife people living there and making it worse. Used to be a nice house and used to be clean and used to not be afraid to walk within the neighborhood and not have to worry about gettting shot or finding needles or drugs laying in the gutter or around the street. Grow up and clean up. Maybe sell the house and left the rest of the people in that used to be quiet court live peacefully
