"A varied suburb"

I lived here for two years not that long ago. I found not having a car a hassle as public transport exists but is not great. There are affluent pockets in this area but also commission houses and working-class areas too. There are good small stores and easy access (by car) to the rest of what Rocky has to offer.

I was hassled a couple of times walking home so I recommend caution if you happen to be walking alone at night. I am told by people who still live here that the situation has worsened.
