Id like to see less abandoned buildings. Cleaner streets. Stop letting kids stand on the corner selling drugs and causing trouble, robbing things. South Buffalo used to be such a nice place to live. It can be like that again if we all come together and work on it as a team!

This neighborhood has always been a great place and I've lived here my whole life. Crime and bad neighbors have increased but the future is looking bright because of a solar panel factory being built a few blocks away. Housing values are hopefully going to go up as the city builds up this neighborhood to attract more people to work at the factory. I can't compare it to anywhere else in the country because I've never lived anywhere else, but it's definitely city living. Bad neighbors or bad landlords are bound to happen, but overall this neighborhood still has great character and a sense of loyalty to it.
Although I live in a friendly neighborhood consisting of mostly family over the age of 30, there is a high crime rate. A lot of people walk on our street in order to get to other streets. There has been several times I have caught people breaking into our car and I've had to call the cops. The good part about living where i do is the housing. They are very big apartments that have a spacious back yard.
