Of course the greatest advantage of the region is its people. The area boasts a blend of many nationalities, cultures, races and religions that creates a sense of vibrancy, strength and community. Neighborhoods are truly areas where people live together and know each other as neighbors. Children still run from house to house to play with friends and truly enjoy their childhood. It is a culture that we can all truly be proud of.
