You guys are bias towards east fort Worth. I dont understand it. Far East Fort Worth bodering Arlington is very nice and alot of millionaires and middle class famiilies live in that area. The Meadowbrook and Handley area have beautiful older homes. So stop making East Fort Worth seem hooded out.

Default Lake Worth, North FTW

Outside the loop are great areas to live, that's where I bought my house. And of course there are nice homes in the East, i am just talking about the slummy areas just South East of downtown with those housing projects and run down houses.

The southside of Fort Worth is definitely not the nices part of the city but I have seen worse in other cities. I never understood with its close proximity to downtown why? they let this community decay over the years. Similar problems have occured in Dallas and Houston.

There is some new development in the area immediately south of downtown. It seems like there is actually a real effort to turn it around.

I'm not from the area but I always considered "Far East" FW - Eastchase, etc, different from the rest of Ft Worth. It feels more like Arlington and is closer to amenities there.

I thought of East FW as the area between downtown and 820 and some of those areas are real rough.

The city I think need to focus on East Lancaster & East Rosedale and the communites around it. Miller & Berry St. has seen big improvements but still need work on. The Stop Six & East Wood communites have had big improvements but still need alot of work. Honestly the only thing that I really see wrong with those communites is the homes need a good paint Job and you will be suprise just by a good paint job how much of a different it would make.

I live in "old getto" area of Fort Worth, as what I was told, it used to be really getto, now it's not really nice people, there is allot of culture on this side of 20 but its good. I would highly recommend North Richland Hills, and Richland Hills, I have lived in Richland Hills before and it's nice, I would also recommend Weatherford..Good luck finding a home here.

i think a lot of the views on this website are semi racist especially the fubu joke....every city has a run area but to use the word ghetto is kind of like associating areas by population of race..............
