I am living in a middle class community surrounded by safe neighbors. My city is very spacious and roads are wide enough to handle ongoing traffics. We have many roundabouts than traffic lights which make driving safe. Each and every road has designated pavement area for pedestrians. Most of the dark corners in city covered by street lights which illuminate during night time. Our city has complicated but convenient public transport system which also provide late night service. In the center of the city we have large square where people meet after their working hours to relax and chat about their social life. The most important thing I like about my city is, people are friendly and welcoming.
