Hi, I just wanted to know a little about the Riverdale/Jonesboro/Lovejoy areas. I wanted some discriptive info. about those areas or about Clayton County. I plan on moving to ATL or the ATL area within the next 3 years so I just needed some info. I am just curious about what goes on South of ATL or in Clayton. Thanks!

Why Clayton County and Riverdale?? Lovejoy will be in the same decline by then. These areas are plagued with crime and illegal immigrant laborers. I have compassion for the immigrants, but because they are so plentiful, they are driving our working wages down by lowbidding. In the end, they are hurting themselves as well as the citizen working class.

Default Not a bad start...

Read the thread that I posted earlier today about Forest Park, GA... This is my story from moving here from Canton, OH.

For the originator of this thread, I'm not sure how good the feedback will do on what is actually going on in Riverdale, GA and how well you'd get along there.
These are challenging times in America and even more challenging to gauge what's going on in a certain area and expect those happenings are a constant. Most ANY place in America can turn in a short period of time and I was seriously considering living in a certain place, I'd go there and check it out personally. I'd visit the local government offices (like Chamber of Commerce and law enforcement agencies), collect info, visit selected neighborhoods and even talk with local Realtors. Just a few thoughts.

I got pulled over more times in the 2 years of living in Clayton County than in the previous 7 years combined living in various other counties in the Atlanta area. I will never move back to ClayCo.

(I'm sorry I didn't have anything productive to add to this conversation, just felt like venting LOL.)

Carry on lol.....
