Kind of inconsistent. They have some housing projects in that area, and there are a couple beautiful charming historic homes mixed in with let down 50s style Florida homes. There is also a lot of gentrification taking place, some run down structures are getting knocked down to build loft style condos and that type of housing. And fortunately, most of the more charming properties seem to be getting revitalized instead of demolished. It's in the process of renewing.

well i feel like i must put in my two cents into this post.. i work with a non-profit volunteer organization that is responsible for donations and food drives all throughout broward county.. mind you i'm only 17 so unlike some members here who occasionally drive through and base their opinions on what they see, i spend my days and nights here with friends and family in some of these so-called "bad areas".. first of all i dont much like the term "bad area", just because a city/area of a city has a high crime-rate of isnt appealing to the eye does not make it BAD.. poverty stricken, crime-ridden maybe, but not BAD. murderers are BAD. pedophiles are BAD. rapists are BAD. carol city or opa-locka is NOT BAD. hey i'm just bringing some real-life experience and some real talk into this forum, dont hate..appreciate.

broward county does have a growing problem with crime, mainly pompano in north broward, lauderdale in central broward, and hollywood in south broward.. i live in central so the places i mention here are strictly in the ft. lauderdale and lauderhill area.. if anybody has any questions on plantation, sunrise, davie, ect. feel free to ask. well from my PERSONAL experience, the areas in here that tend to have a higher crime rate, most notably in 'pedestrian crime' (car jacking, robbery, assault, ect.) ((ay they call it jackboy county for a reason =P)) would definitely be:

deepside
shallowside
melrose park
washington park
franklin park
sunland park
sistrunk
dixie court projects a.k.a. midway
tater town
and i've noticed riverland is getting pretty gully..

of course there is more but right now thats all that comes to mind. high crime or not, i still represent BROWARD COUNTY to tha fullest *954*... remember be smart, stay in your comfort zone and nobody will give you any problems.. usually

That whole Mainlands area is a really weird mishmash of housing styles, but there's nothing too bad there. Just ugly.

Take a look at the surrounding area to get an idea...

http://maps.google.com/maps?oe=utf-8...ed=0CBAQnwIwAA

Looks like some fringey part of Miramar.

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...68.48,,0,-2.11

Looks like Arizona.

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...12,21.5,,0,6.6

Looks like those flat-roof townhomes they build all over Florida.

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...,234.04,,0,6.5

Looks like Boca Raton.

I don't know the specific community that well, but looking at the surrounding area, it looks like it could go any way.

Hammondville Rd just east of 95 might just be the ghettoest place in broward. Definitely top 3. But thats a real ghetto. Not a run-down neighborhood or any of those terms. Just ghetto.
