Old West Tampa Reviews

Good Ole West Tampa was one of those parts of town where everyone grew up together. Your next door neighbor was your watch dog and your baby sister if you needed assistants. It was one of those communities that embraced change with no judgement. It was one of those comfortable places where it housed plethora of mixed faces from different races, ages and incomes of all tax orientations. This is what I called home.

Now the rate of change is good. The children of the community are adults now and the eagerness of new comers have settled into those old faces places. To create an incredible term called Gentrification. What was once someone else's trash became another's fortune. This is what I call growth. And because of the scabbed up knees, laughter and infusion of people in the past. It built a utopia for the change I love to be apart of now.
