West End Reviews

All Categories
I absolutely love the history that comes from this neighborhood, but the neighborhood itself is run down. The streets are full of pot holes, deteriorating houses, and run down strip malls. The neighborhood is being gentrified which is wonderful, but the boarded up houses, untended lawns and shrubbery degrades the overall quality of the area. The homeless community is also a problem, countless homeless individuals with no place to go, stand in front of stores, on highway exits, and walk residential areas. I would definitely like to see some resources placed in the area to tend to the needs of our homeless population. Not just to pacify them but to put them on positive trajectory. The HBCUs here are definitely a plus, as i am a product of the most prestigious one, Spelman College, but the surrounding neighborhood does not provide a safe environment for the students attending these institutions of higher learning. Reports show that on average a student is robbed at least once a moth.
