West Side Reviews
I think housing is great in my area. As I mentioned before my area has been marked as historic which has drawn a lot of Realtors and new faces, however let's be clear. You can walk just down my block and watch the dynamics of the area change (which isn't considered historic). It's almost like going into an entire different city, you go from what looks to be a middle class area to what is then very low income. The best area would have to be the downtown district which has turned into a mini NY. Often people who can't afford NY high prices move here or deeper into the city. The worst area in the city is the Greenville section! This area is filled with low income, drugs, alcohol, proverty and crime.
I believe people intend to live in my area for a very long time. A lot of residents I believe are lung to own than to rent. My area is very pet/family friendly ,however there needs to be events which bring neighbors and communities together. We need more block parties, fairs, and parades!
The overall experience of this area is okay because sometimes it is good and no so bad. I would choose to live here again though because I have known this area as my first home for most of its perks, like knowing people and places around in close proximity. In the future for this area, a couple of areas are starting to improve for appearance and attraction for more people to visit and see new beauty in this area.
