I see, and where are all the pics of Trolley Square, Forty Acres, Wawaset Park, Cool Springs, Rockland Park, The Highlands -- all within the City of Wilmington, plus several other areas? The thrust of the OP and the pictures submitted are racist, luddite, classist, and all around bigotted.

The only truly decent "side" of Wilmington is the northwestern portion starting with Delaware Ave and going up through 40 acres, Rockford, etc.

My point about east Wilmington isn't about the crime, but more about the scarier areas of Wilmington. We can go on and on about this. Wilmington is what it is, a small city on the 95 corridor with alot of crime. Some nice areas and some bad. Newark,NJ Camden, Chester and Wilmington. All the same to me.

Doctorjef, To be fair not everyone has the economic means to live in Greenville and can relate to where your coming from or how you may feel about Wilmington. The pictures on this page shed light to the places from Joe84323 spotcrime pic which sadly looks to be all over the city. I mean, I did not take the pics and we cant just brush them under the rug. If we took all the money we used on the war in Iraq we could have put it into where the pics are from. Then maybe North Market, Eastside, Riverside, Westside, South Bridge would look like Trolley Square, Forty Acres, Wawaset Park, Cool Springs, Rockland Park, and The Highlands. Am I right or wrong?

I agree with James420 100% right here.

East of Market has parts that look worse then some 3rd world countries. I assume 75% of Delaware do NOT even know Riverside exist due to the terrain you gotta go thru to get there, its like folklore.

Ebenezer Baptist Church

^My friend got shot to death and I went to his funeral at Ebenezer Baptist Church, when i parked my car and stepped on the pavement to walk around out there I could "feel it in the air" its a serious place to be on foot.

Projects have been rebuilt in some of those areas of Wilmington, as recently as 7 years ago and they still look like 3rd world countries. Culture and education must change, throwing money around is the American answer to alot of things like education which has been reformed 5 times in the 15 years that I've lived in Delaware and it hasn't gotten better. Until we can figure out a way to educate the poor in this country, places like Wilmington and Camden will exist.

What Projects have been rebuilt in the last 7 years?

Not Riverside or South Bridge which are the most Infamous thats for sure and those homes are from the 1950's

Westside & Eastside have not changed since the 90's did you look at the pics? The Infrastructure looks absolutely morbid. I think they might have did a little work on some new town homes over northside a few years ago but that's all i know of.

The bucket, and southbridge projects were both knocked down within the past 10 years... actually maybe it's been longer for the bucket.

Im not sure where you got this info from b/c I seen those projects in the 90's and then again with my own eyes this week. They say Riverside is the bucket and its all still there right now. I think they took down some projects in Eastlake which is across from riverside tho. IDK, can anyone confirm this with pics?
