The worst of that QT is the morons that attempt to turn left out of there into one of the busiest intersections in Atlanta...and I'm always right there behind 'em with my right turn blinker on.

I think this is the wrong forum for these types of threads. If everybody posted crime daily for every city in America it will take up too much space on here

Possibly so. Some of the political threads also seem somewhat out of place but such is 'life' in Atlanta, GA.

At times there is not much relocation activity in the forum.

This area sucks, is overriden with crime and very dangerous. But what area of Atlanta isn't like that?

I don't agree that this area 'sucks and is overridden with crime' and there are statistics to support this. From previous posts it seems you have some negative opinions of Atlanta in general.



Neighborhood groups are concerned and crimes do not go unreported.

That comment doesn't even merit a response. North Druid Hills is a terrific place in which to live with a very active and engaged resident's association.

Wrong. You really shouldn't comment on things you know nothing about.

Not only is this extremely misleading advice for people not familiar with this area, it does a disservice to one of the nicest parts of ITP.

I suppose I should never have mentioned our occasional crime alerts but because they are the exception rather than the rule it creates a stir in the community.

There are many old trees in this area and things are looking very green and lovely today, FWIW.

Please don't feel that way, TAH. What you did was a service to the area, and quite a few of us live in this nice part of town. Thank you for the heads up.

I agree about the beauty of our area. My yard looks like it's "glowing" today after the rain!
