I used to live in Ft. Worth during the late 1980's and one of my whereabouts was on Las Vegas Tr. in a townhouse. I left in 1990 and I am wondering how the area has turned out since then.

Drugs, Gangs, Shootings, Crimes etc. Pretty much all of the west side of FW is going down the slumbo tube. Even going through White Settlement hardly any businesses besides car lots, mostly closed down businesses. It is a shame to see areas that were once safe feeling to go into now turned upside down and lonely looking. It used to be a fun family town back in the days.

Wow. It looks like the place I lived as a little boy has gone to crap.

I did a streetview of Las Vegas Trail on google earth. It doesn't look like it is as bad as some of the replies would indicate. I guess looks can be deceiving. I haven't been to LV Trail in 20 years, so I wouldn't know.

I also grew up in that area during my teen years(80's). That area is mostly middle to lower middle class. You do have alot of little punks and drugs running around there. It has gone down hill over the years. As with other areas though, I am hoping it comes back in a big way. You still have Electric Cowboy nearby and car dealships. My father lives near there and says things have settled down just a bit over the last year though.

I have to say it's not a very good area. I lived in the area about 15 years ago and it was bad then (someone was killed at a bus stop right off I-30 when I lived in the area), and have visited since and it doesn't appear any better. I believe the whole area has gone downhill somewhat since then.
