black/african american opinion

Hello:
Is there anyone who is familiar with the West Side of El Paso, off of Artcraft, left onto Westside and into the streets of Mis Bev and Vicente Gomez, Sara Suzanne, onto Katie Lane area? I recently purchased a home there and would like to inform everyone that new homes are being built there and they are very nice. Hoping to see more of our people in this area.
