I went to Green Street Friends School in the neighboorhood for 3 years but lived in East Oak Lane.

I read that it's a rough area but I didn't get that feeling going to school. Somepeople think it brakes down dependent on which side of the Avenue you are on. Any opinons?

It's a very interesting neighborhood. There are certainly some rough parts but I think there are as many nice parts as well, and the patches of each seem to be intermittent. For example, some places east of the Avenue like along Church Lane and Logan and Haines St. are beautiful and well-maintained, but two blocks away, you might have a real dumpy few blocks. Overall, I'd say the further north and west you go into G-Town the better, but throughout, the quality of the neighborhood is really localized.

Great school btw.

Agreed. G'town is better north and west. It gets rough down towards Wayne Junction.
