You would be a fool to move to Lauderhill.

Trying to find the one halfway decent neighborhood in the ghetto isn't good advice. Lauderhill is one of the most dangerous areas in the county. In fact, most of the crime in Sunrise and Tamarac is spillover from Lauderhill.

While retaining some privacy, I have a close relative in law enforcement in one of the previously mentioned cities - believe me, you don't want to live in Lauderhill. Especially when there are much better places in the area like Coral Springs.

I am 25 and I lived in broward county my entire life, and i can assure you that lauderdale lakes and lauderhill are safe working class neighborhoods. if you are a racist and dont like black people around your kids then i recommend the living outside the 10 mile box nolefan34 mentioned. Which was east of US1 (beach front property) and west of university which cannot be more than 10 years old. both these factors mean high prices. but if you do decide to live within "the black box" You do have to look out for thses ares. in lauderhill from 47ter going west to 60th can get a little rough. In lauderdale lake 44th street. i actually live in that nighborhood now but from the tone of this blog i dont recomment any of you [mod]snip[/mod]to live there. the entire city of north lauderdale and margate are safe. On the west side of kimberly the nieghborhood looks a little (very little) rough but the people are working class and the police wil not let there citizens be afraid. they are very...mean when they ought to be. Please people im not sure why MELROSE was even mention but this area is a NO GO! This neighborhood might look safe but it's not. i dont recommend anyone living there. or even nieghborhoods near melrose. the city of plantation would be the next closest city to melsrose and if you have the cash head west. east planation is safe but it is close to melrose and you will run into some trouble. i hope I was some help be safe not sorry!

I used to live in Melorose back in 1996. On Evanston Circle. I didn't have any bad experiences there, but I know things change. So, it has gotten that bad? I knew a lot of families there. It was pretty quiet when I lived there. Some crime here and there, but that's normal. I don't go through life not expecting any crime in a neighborhood. But I'm very, extremely picky about whom I chose as friends and whom I allow in my house. Plus, I'm always alert and prepared whenever I'm walking anywhere. I already know, that no matter where you are, criminals are always looking for a victim.

Why risk your life ????

Head West towards I-75 and live in a decent area (a little more expensive) than live in an armpit of Lauderhill and its surrounding areas. If you don't mind driving a distance and paying tolls, head north to Coral Sprngs / Sawgrass Mills area. Moderator cut: you doth protest too much I just don't want to be near low class hoot rats dealing drugs , hearing gun fire every night and seeing people on food stamp with gold teeth and driving fancy cars with 22 inch rims and using their WIC benefits at the supermarket.
