  • It is a nice place to be. It is much safer and cleaner than most areas in Johannesburg. There's a bit of convenience because the shops are closer to the residential buildings. The night life is also good because of the vibey bars and clubs close by. There's also a bus station for the Johannesburg Metro buses.
  • I pass there everytime I come back from the holidays. It's safe. Lots of security guards and people. It's vibrant and has lots of shopping complexes where you can get a quick bit.
