2nd Ward is close to east downtown and just down the street. The place is really coming up with new construction and all. I see it growing in the coming years. The location is not bad at all you still have some shady areas in the neighborhood but like I said it's growing and eventually it will be a desirable place to live. I love it! *coming from a new homeowner*

This neighborhood needs more opportunities for the individuals who live here. Most stay in the cycle of not becoming someone and not bettering their families.
The Magnolia has always had a bad reputation of gangs and crime but surprisingly it haas always felt same to me and my community. Once in a while you will heard something about an incident but overall it is a very safe and calm neighborhood. Ive been here since i was a little girl and if I were to leave I shouldn't hesitate to come back. I see changes being made to the community already with the new metro rail and I see it improving drastically over the years.
