Greater Downtown Reviews
I just love the area, it's a great area between downtown and midtown. Walking distance to the jazz district; simply just beautiful and quite.
I don't ever hear of any violent crimes. The most common crimes are dumping and littering on a street that doesn't have any houses. There is graffiti a couple of streets over on the main street, but it's not gang-related or anything like that. Just some kids messing around. When there were businesses there back in the day, we didn't have this problem.
I love that the neighborhood is getting safer and nicer, but I don't like the gentrification that is taking place. People who have lived here for over 50 years are being forced to move because of increased property taxes and other changes. I miss the friendly feel when you knew everyone on the block. The new people ever go outside or sit on their porches.
