Hi, we are buying a house in Broadview Park (west part of it) and I have read here on city-data that Broadview Park is one of the worst areas in Fort Lauderdale. But however we checked out the area and couldnt see anything wrong with that, all looked safe, neighbors are not cheap, some have boats and nice houses. Please let me know, is it safe as it looks and is it a good place to buy a house?

Ну не знаю... Местность рядом с хайвеями обычно не очень... А тут рядом с 441, Тёрнпайком, и i-595...

I looked at the streets on Google Street View and it looks pretty run down to me.

The neighborhood itself isn't terrible looking but it has kind of a bad rap with regards to crime. It gets nicer as you go more northwest near the Turnpike. It's definitely not one of the worst areas of Fort Lauderdale but there are definitely better neighborhoods. People on this forum tend to exaggerate areas that aren't the typical manicured "American" neighborhoods as being rough.


I saw a home there one time that I was thinking of buying as an investment property. I personally thought the neighborhood looked quite decent. The only issue I had with it was it being on the crossroad of 441 and 595.

Wow!
Haven't heard that name in years!
(Broadview Park)

Growing up in the 50's and 60's in Twin Lakes, Broadview was known for it's redneck gangs! lol
(Our toughs used to 'rumble' with their toughs) LOL

Of course, I have been gone for twenty years so things may have changed 'but' if I were moving back .. it wouldn't be to anywhere near Broadview!

Broadview Park is not one of the worst areas in Fort Lauderdale. It's an ok neighborhood. The NW part is the nicest part but the rest of it is ok.

Default Broadview Park

Good evening
I just joined this forum
If you are not already under contract, I suggest you search on line (so many sites which provide, among other data, crime stats) to make sure you like what you see.
Saying that, if you need any assistance, related to buying, feel free to contact me via DM.

I agree, it's below average, not nice really, but okay overall. There's better areas not far from there though.
