So because you had bad experiences in one of the sketchiest neighborhoods in town you've decided this whole half of town is bad? There's a whole 90 percent of town that isn't mt vernon to college. Oh well, our loss I'm sure. Enjoy the south side and best of luck to you. I'll continue to enjoy where I live on this end.

Nobody's trying to pin anything on you and i realize it isnt just you saying that stuff here. I just see people, including yourself, saying this stuff in this reddit group and it makes me curious because it just doesn't reflect the experiences myself, my family or my friends have had. I'm sorry those aren't the experiences you guys have. I'm always curious how that happens though. I've seen someone describe my parents block full of retirees in well kept older houses as full of meth heads and daily drive bys. My dad joked it must be happening at 3 when everybody naps. I'm truly sorry you've had bad experiences and people from your end of town are always welcome to enjoy the things we have here.

As far as real estate prices go, I bought my house for quality of life, not to resell it. If I did it over again I'd go for more land but I'd certainly stay in the same part of town.
