I've read various comments in different posts about Norcross going down. I've lived her for past 7 years and really have seen nothing but money (builders, government, businesses, etc) being put in to this place. Now I live in the peachtree corners area, so I'm not sure if when people talke about Norcross are they talking about the other side 30093 & 30071 or the city as a whole. But there's seems to be a lot of interest in Historic Downtown Norcross where new housing is going up for 300k-700k. What's that about?

People are probably referring to the areas near I-85, Jimmy Carter Blvd., Steve Reynolds, etc.

There certainly are two Norcross: One is nice area (Peachtree corner, technology park, Historic Norcross) and one is not so much. The undesirable area is called Gwinnett village, mostly unincorporated part of Norcross although Gwinnett village formed a cid a couple of years ago and they try to improve the area (i.e. hire more polices).

There was blog in ajc talked about.

city of Norcross vs. unincorporated Norcross (http://www.ajc.com/metro/content/shared-blogs/ajc/norcrosstalk/entries/2006/07/17/a_tale_of_two_n.html - broken link)

personally i don't see what the big deal is about the other side of 85. i lived there for many years and never had problems, still have friends over there too. the area is a lot better that what it looked like 8 years ago and i'm sure it will contunue to grow as well. as far as the peachtree corners side of norcross, i watch my back more over there than i do decatur. just because you have money doesn't mean people don't rob.

I lived in the Peachtree Corners area and could not wait to move...I felt totally unsafe and have watched that place decline significantly in the 10 years I spent there...thank heavens I am now in Alpharetta...it is up to the individual but that place was not my idea of safe and secure.
