It is a fairly quiet city because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Napoleon has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Napoleon has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Napoleon than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Napoleon may be for you.
