I disagree. I for one am in the process of starting my child in Dayton Public Schools. My wife has several friends doing the same with their kids. I really am unaware of an exodus away from DPS. Some prefer to educate their kids elsewhere and that's cool too.

Yeah, but Oakwood's property taxes are VERY high compared to Dayton.

I totally disagree. You couldn't pay me to live in Oakwood - I find it rather snobbish and overpriced. I also would never want my son in Oakwood schools for that matter.

I'm not trying to bash. Quite the opposite - I appreciate your insight and that you post here. It's just that one man's floor is another man's ceiling...or something like that...lol

It's very likely I will go there, i hope to renovate it, and did my part to make the community a little better, if there are some more like me, i think the community will get better and better, am i childish or right?
again, mike did me a big favor, thank you again! hope to hear more advice on how to live in 45406!
Congrats! I did the same thing to a home in the middle of the east end. Yep, it's a little rough but I can afford it and I am doing my part to make it better.

We really need more people like you in this world

Anyways, Dayton View really is pretty nice, for the most part. Yes, it has crime, but so does Manhattan, and Oakwood, for that matter. The housing stock, IMO, is the best in Dayton, and it's a hood that I personally would love to live in sometime in the near future.

I think you made a very good decision to choose the View!!!!

Oh no, I grew up in the Dayton area and left when i was 26 years old. Lately, it's deem one of the worst places to raise children. Dayton view area has so much crime, you'll get what you pay for there. There are some affordable places in Kettering, Fairborn, Springboro, and Miamisburg that will fit a similar budget. Stay away from the bad areas in Dayton, the crime there is terrible.

"Stay away from the bad areas in Dayton"

Wow, what valuable advice that was - thanks for the tip!

I love the expansion in the University Row/Brown Street area. I really think this will play as a big retail/commercial sector in the future for Dayton with the expansion of University of Dayton and the close proximity to downtown. It already has a great bar and restaurant scene is finally starting to pick up a good retail scene. Some of the urban housing down there is interesting, too.

If you are talking about Brown between Oakwood and, say, Wyoming, I could see that developing into something similar to Bardstown Road or Frankfort Avenue in Louisville. Or maybe extending "Oakwood" into the city more. You already see that a bit with that little buisness district by the Pine Club an Milanos.

...though I think the University Row the thread parent was talking about is not the one by UD, but the streets named after universities up off of Salem.

I like that area a lot a was just there today at Night and Day cafe.

@nick - I am not too sure about development there right now. Miller-Valentine can't get tenants to occupy the vacant spaces at the corner of Brown and Stewart. I would love to see it thrive into a hip college area though. Just don't know that the demographics/demand support ATM.
