"extremely friendly neighborhood"

We were skeptical about living in Portsmouth but this is in the churchland area which is nicer. We LOVE this neighborhood. The day we moved in all of the neighbors came over and welcomed us in. We had a power outage due to a storm and 2 people offered to hook us up to their generators. The people here are extremely friendly. I go running every day and everyone waves and smiles. The neighborhood is safe and there are many nice, respectful children playing outside. There are sometimes people I would have considered as "questionable" but I have quickly learned not to judge because everyone has been very friendly. Many of the houses are on the water as well which is very nice. People keep up their yards (for the most part) and I always get compliments from people who visit. The location is convenient to just about everything and if you are stationed in newport news the drive is about 15 mins and rarely any traffic. This is an awesome place to live.

Pros Cons
  1. Nice People
  2. Convenient to shopping, NN and Portsmouth shipyard
  3. No traffic in area
  4. Safe
  1. not very upscale shopping center down the road
  2. taxes are higher in portsmouth
  3. next to townhomes that arent as nice
  4. a couple of houses do not take pride in their yards
