LOL, you dont know the difference between Asheville and Mayberry? Yikes! And that's Asheville with an "e."

And I think "many many vacant homes" is a bit of an exaggeration. Yes there are foreclosures but when your actually there you can't really tell, you may see one or two vacant homes out of ever 50 or so. And I saw today that based on newly released Feb numbers Orlando is no longer on the top 10 list of metro areas with the most foreclosures.
32825, 32826, 32820 and all those other zips are NOT Avalon Park.

I live here, it's not an exaggeration. There's more forclosures in my subdivision than in some entire zip codes in Asheville. One out of 50 are forclosures? You're dreaming man.

Alright, I have never been in your specific sub division, its one of the newest so it prolly does have a lot. But im in plently of other subdivisions off avalon park blvd a lot and i don't notice a big abundance of vacant homes. that whole area is always crowded, it does not feel empty at all.

I was talking about the whole AP/waterford lakes area not just avalon park, cause when you were talking about the murders you said 3, which included one in waterford lakes developments. The whole avalon/waterford lakes area does go into those zips, they are all tied together. I'm not talking about the whole area of those zips, just the parts that boarder 32828. Like where lowes, BJs, Outback, Harley davidson, hooters and the rest of the places off lake underhill near alafaya trl, thats all 32825. and a lot of those developments have "waterford lakes" in their names, and If you've been to that hooters, the shirts that the girls wear say " Hooters waterford lakes, fl" on them. And the "innovation way" corridor, which connects to the entrance of AP is 32825. We were talking about the whole community not just avalon park, if you wanna be technical then you don't even live in avalon park.

32828 had the most forclosures in the Orlando area last time I saw the report. We both agree that the area should be safer and better than what it is. We agree on that, so no need to go back and forth.

Again, you bash the entire state from Palm Coast/Ocala southward because you bought into a crappy subdivision. It's not about your area, which just about anyone will agree is crappy; it's about the exaggerations of the entire state and constant bashing of people of certain ethnic groups/regional origin.

I made my own map to highlight the area of east orlando that has gone downhill the most, that is highlighted in red, neighborhoods are labeled blue, streets are labeled. I also made arrows pointing in the direction of adjacent neighborhoods
I moved to 32807 in 1968 when I was 4 years old and moved away in 1976. By dint of circumstances, I have recently moved back into the same house. In those days it was sort of on the outskirts of town, or at least it was 'on the way out of town' you might say and very laid back. Today it is the absolute pits. Vagrants, drug addicts, mental patients hanging around the Sams on the corner of 50 and Goldenrod. If you had said in the 70s this is the way it would become, they would have said you are crazy. I blame the rapid transit which has allowed this to happen, but things can't stay the same forever.

LOL at "rapid transit" i can never recall a time when lynx has ever been "rapid" lol

This is why buses do not run in certain neighborhoods or at the very least on the fringes of nice neighborhoods. they want to keep the riff raff that rides the bus out

This is why there isn't a lynx bus that goes into the center of Celebration, only at the edge of it along 192. Same goes for Waterford Lakes, no bus there. (They did have that 414 Alafaya Trailblazer for a little while but that didnt last) Same also goes for Dr Phillips, Windermere

Then again this city was never built to be "transit friendly" the roads here with th exception of downtown are not in a grid like other cities (Vegas is a great example)

Roads here go all around and are nowhere near being gridlike
