100% accurate. Missing the Culebra Meat Market markers though.

Visit Ingram Mall, Southpark Mall, or the older Wallmart over near 151.

I love living in San Antonio, and I can't imagine living anywhere else. But San Anto has no shortage of pants-sagging teenage gangsters, ratchet-ass hoodrats, and backwards inconsiderate trash. Same as anywhere else in the world.

The best you can do is be the best person you can be, help how you can, and hope others do the same. That doesn't make the opened, half-eaten snack food on the HEB aisle, or the festering parking lot diaper, or the spray painted residential fence go away. Some folks like to pretend it doesn't exist though which is sad in a totally different way.

My point the whole time is everyone's experience is different.

I have no desire or need to go to any of the places listed. (not that I'm to good for the places mentioned I just shop at other locations out of pure convenience)

You only go to the area marked 1%, sea world, and the rim. Your experiences in many things, life included, will be different than mine. We are in full agreement.

There is something about San Antonio that stands out and causes people to notice the litter, loose dogs, gang taggings, etc. It is ALL over...not just the "hood", like most other cities. We live in another large city and you have to go looking for these issues. It is not tolerated out in middle or upper class neighborhoods. It's not tolerated by businesses there, either. You sense pride in appearance when it comes to yards, roadways, and such. I have yet to see one bit of graffiti and there is no trash, furniture, or diapers around.
Everything was brand new when we lived on the far west side of SA. In the following years, the "newness" wore off. I remember my dad saying that if an area "peaks" when it's new, that is a bad sign- which is exactly what happened. You want your area to always be getting better. I don't care how many In-and -Out Burgers go up; that won't change the people.

In the lame bars area they only have 4 bars and most of those are "pre" this map.

You can tell the person that made map as never been to the NE side and seems pretty immature.

If you're offended by it, then don't look at it. It doesn't single out a single group. This is how people stereotype different parts of the city whether you like it or not. Why not try to focus on why so many people think this way even if you disagree.

i see you noticed our resident san antonio white knight league in action!

It's not.

Unless that "someone" has a corresponding racist and judgmental mindset as that map.

The map is about as truthful and helpful as a 24/7 cable news channel.

Default Wreck it, Ralph,

It is so, this is a completely non-scientific poll. Dirty diapers? A sound scientific survey was done by less scientifically inclined posters here that would post what conveniences them, simply to make public statements that give them some sort of self-gratificationas though what they say carries import.
Which , indeed , it does not.

I liked that map for the humor and as a lifelong resident of San Antonio who was born here....I feel it is mostly true.

I laughed. They're stereotypes, not the truth. I especially liked the arbitrary speeding tickets around Leon Valley, Selma, etc.
