Well I'll be damned, there is indeed a stretch of suburb type homes between Dox Alley and Dorbeth Rd. It's only on one side of the road, but still kinda cool I guess. Wonder what initiative that was done under. Looking at Zillow.com and the Monroe County website, it looks like they're all worth $55k+. I can't say I'd even consider living in the area myself, but hey, at least a small part of one of the worst areas of the city looks somewhat appealing, as 585 said.

14621 has some of the most beautiful houses you can imagine. I've been here 30 years or so. I live like a rich person on a poor person's pay. You just have to not mind the neighbors.

I can't believe that all the rap-loving white goobers who fantasize about being Real Urban Negroes don't buy in mixed neighborhoods. Only good could come from it. Maybe the government can force them to live here, like they did with forcing people to go to schools out of their neighborhoods.

All joking aside, I'm quite interested in what you're talking about. I typically think of that part of the city as a "no-go" area. Perhaps short-sited on my part. As stated above, gentrification can happen ANYWHERE. I watched it take-root in even the worst of areas in DC over the 15 years I lived there. But there has to be a core group of people living there who want to see change. They lobby the city, call the police, etc, etc.

How do you feel about the safety of where you are living?

At no time would I want to live somewhere where I just have to "not mind the neighbors". What a bunch of horse Moderator cut: language that is.

The city has a bunch of homes that USED to be gorgeous back when they were inhabited by people who actually gave two Moderator cut: language about their entire community, both the property and the people. Now, it's most slums and low rent housing that's a shell of its former self. Quite sad really. All those formerly beautiful mansions now run down and beat up.

My neighbors are not nearly as evil as the ofays that I encountered during my very brief corporate job.

And if you live somewhere where you don't mind any of the neighbors, it might be -you're- the worst guy there.

There's a reason they say "location-location-location." I rather live in a lesser house in a good neighborhood anyday, then in a grand house in a crummy neighborhood - most people feel this way and it will play out when you try to sell your house.
