Well if someone doesn't Mind living in a dumpster, literally. I have yet to see a safe area in the USA or in the world with piles of garbage when there is a garbage pickup service in the area. It says a lot about the character of the residents.

No way Lo. All google maps does is drive through a neighborhood with a 360 degree camera on top of the car and record what they see. They aren't trying to do anything but map the terrain. They just happened to catch something going on by coincidence. The fact that something was going on while Google drove through is indicative on how much actually does go on in a given neighborhood.

I see. It makes sense. I have seen some pictures that the images came back all blurry.

I actually grew up in Overtown, and back than/nor now would I ever go any where on 2nd Ct. It's notorious for being the worst of the neigborhood. There's a big street gang and it's racist. Trust me. If you're looking for something cheap yet decent try closer to Biscayne.

1701 nw 2nd court miami fl

I know this is the overton section,but wanted to know is this area really that bad,specifically the address I posted,above, there's a closed gated little community in this section i might move to just for about a month.Im a security guard and I have a license to carry plus I know about bad neighborhoods O grew up in north philadelphia,which personally to me,has one of the worst hoods i ever seen,call the bad land,in north philly.I also notice this area is next to jackson memorial hospital,so does this mean theres alot of police monitoring the area?I need peoples opinons and advises,hopefully most wont over exagerate on how bad this area is.also I'm not white im latino,so dont know if that may help
That is one of the worst neighborhoods in all of South Florida. It has a very high crime rate and I would not recommend it. Also, I doubt that being "Latino" will help you in Overtown; the population is overwhelmingly African-American. If you wish to live in that area north of Downtown, the best areas are along US1 and east to the Bay.

umm, I would not pick this area to live. However, I work with a lot of people who live in this area, you will be okay. Do you have a pit bull? Better get one. Your neighbors will either speak Spanish, or Creole. There are alot of elderly people in this area. My main problem with this area is lack of grocery stores, fast food, coffee, even the gas stations are few and far in this area. The good news, you will be close to work if you work at the VA hospital. And if anyone shoots you there are alot of hospitals in the area with ER's.

Okay, everyone is real nice to me when I come over to their house, even if I am white, with blonde hair. Most people in this area are nice. Just don't go out at night.

In Miami, there was a thing called "Anglo Flight".
When that happened, large tracts of Real Estate went up in price.
But what Miami needs is a more thorough "Flight", so all English speakers can reunite in Broward and celebrate together.
