I lived in that area too for a while. It has some good qualities, but it's got to be one of the most dysfunctional, frustrating parts of the city. I used to live about 4 kilometres from Dal and it took me something like 45 minutes to get to school. The neighbourhood is a mix of relatively densely packed houses and apartment buildings and I think parts of Hammonds Plains have better local shops and services (literally -- I lived in a house in St. Margaret's Bay that was closer to a convenience store and grocery store). Mainland South is a textbook case of what can go wrong when you don't build decent infrastructure.
