Madison South Reviews
The overall sense of safety in this area is poor. There have been vehicle break ins as well as squatters living in an abandoned building across the street. I am not comfortable letting my kids go outside to play. The biggest concern I have is regarding the abandoned building / empty lot across the street from my residence. The police are rarely visible in my community, meaning I rarely see them. If they are called they get here quick enough though.
The overall experience of where I live is disappointing. When I moved here it was clean, quiet and affordable. That has definitely changed over the years. There is more drug and criminal activity and the general atmosphere is unsafe. If I could do it all over again I would not move here. The rent is going up not only here, but all over the Portland Metro area which has caused many families to become displaced. I don't see any improvements in the future, I only see things going downhill from here unfortunately.
Living on 82nd is okay. it's loud and noisy at night and weird people walk around, but during the day, it's okay.
