I'm not sure, I've heard it's in Perrine but Ive also heard it's in Richmond. The general consensus though, from speaking to people from that South Dade area is that 1) Richmond Heights isnt as bad as some of the neighborhoods near it and 2) there is a lot of interaction between Perrine and Richmond Heights

Yes, West Perrine is ghetto, but it is separated from Richmond Heights by a whole other neighborhood. Richmond Heights' southern border is 152nd street. On the other side of 152nd street is a neighborhood known as Fairway Estates (or Fairway Heights) which is mostly a Caribbean enclave. Then, south of the Fairway neighborhood at around 168th street is where West Perrine begins.

Also, keep in mind that Coral Reef high school which is a magnet school is located right next to Richmond Heights. I don't think they would've put a magnet school there if it were a ghetto area.

I don't think Richmond heights is ghetto but when you head East towards US1 the area gets weird I would say around 122ave or 117 ave. , yes and that includes the school. Maybe it's people that come from West Perrine or Fairway Heights(never hear of this area BTW) maybe there is a neighborhood around there that I am not aware of. I don't feel safe in that strip mall on 112 ave and Coral Reef. Where there is a Citibank. There is a LabCorp or Quest diagnostics there and the people that go there are super ghetto.

Not Richmond Heights (but near there), I saw what appeared to be housing projects near the entrance to the zoo (between 117th Ave and 124 Ave) to the south of 152nd St. Is this indeed a housing project or were my eyes deceiving me?

I've seen some apartment complexes off 117th ave, just north of 152nd street. I assume those are low-income apartments, so maybe that's where the sketchy black folks that you've seen come from?

The only apartments I can think of are located west of the shopping mall where the Home Depot is. I think I have seen the rent prices for those apartments and they are normal for the area.

Ok here's a list of our Housing projects in SW Miami excluding anything in downtown Miami and south of SW 268 st, so yes all the public housing in that area seem to be in West Perrine.

Public Housing Developments - Miami-Dade County

11341 SW 216th St, Miami, FL 33170 (Ghoulds)
S Dixie Hwy & SW 213th St, Miami, FL 33189 (Ghoulds)
10161 Circle Plz W, Miami, FL 33157 (SW 172 st, West Perrine)
10000 W Jessamine St, Miami, FL 33157 (SW 179th st, also West Perrine)
SW 168 St & SW 104th Ave, Miami, FL 33157 (West Perrine)
6700 SW 59th PL, Miami, FL 33143 (South Miami)
6701 SW 62nd Ave, South Miami, FL 33143 (South Miami)
11200 SW 192 Street, Miami, FL 33157 (Cutler Ridge?)

I was curious so I looked up the ones I saw while driving. They are called Southern Anchor apartments and characterized as "Affordable housing" on some websites. I'm not overly familiar with the different layers of public or subsidized housing but it does seem there is some element of gov't assistance.
