Who would want to live around that? Melrose park is good, working class, honest people. Just be careful on the davie road side. Victoria Park upper scale, nice. Melrose working middle class. Sailboat bend + Franklin Park = hell to the naw!


sailboat bend is decent if you ask me.. franklin park is 50/50, i was talking about the part closer to st. george..

Do you mean parkway? St George the church? If so that is in Parkway not Franklin park. As far as being decent, I guess that depends on what you call decent. I don't call government housing project, prostitution, halfway houses and the like decent, but thats just me.

I lived in Melrose Park. The true boundaries are 441 (St Rd 7) to the west, Jackson Blvd (both sides) to the south, 31st Ave (ML King Blvd) to the east, and Broward Blvd to the north. I am originally from Ft Lauderdale, but now live in Massachusetts. Friends in the area told me that more middle-class started moving in as prices further east got out of control. At the peak, houses in Melrose were selling for about $250,000, and a more diverse group of people were moving in to the area - a mixture of middle class non-Hispanic whites, Latinos, and African Americans, in addition to the West Indian population. After the real estate bubble burst, houses became available from around $125,00 to $150,000, depending on age and size. Also the in the central, western and southern portions of the neighborhood, prices are a bit higher. I'm thinking of moving back. I'm a single white male, age 45. Does anyone know if this would be wise? I have and always will have a soft spot in my heart for Melrose, as that is were I grew up.

If you don't mind living among West Indians (Caribbean) folk then yeah move to melrose. Its nice over there, had a good friend over there. Spent tons of time over there, never had any problems.
