East Lake Reviews
Well eastlake is a urban neighborhood surrounded by small black businesses. However, the area is small close netted, so most individuals know each others from school or work. Moreover, school and other eateries are within walking distance. Attractions includes; park and lake, pubic library, grocer, and 1st ave cultural district. Historical context, original and former site of Samford university(Birmingham homewood ) which was then, Howard University. Banks School known for its Jet that flew in ww3 was a gift to school and used as mascot for school.
The street that I live on is very quiet and has an equal mixture of cultures. However the overall neighborhood is not a great neighborhood. There is constant shootings and I am afraid to stop an any gas station or stores in the neighborhood.
It's a decent neighborhood depending on what part of the area you stay in. My mom chose a quite street with great neighbors, I can't complain.
