I am not familiar with this area, but it would make for a much shorter commute. I noticed a lot of new developments going up and was curious about the crime rates and overall feel of the area. I am mostly looking between Risinger and 1187, west of I35. I don't have children now but as far as resale or a family in the future, how are the schools? I know that some of the bordering neighborhoods are kinda scketchy (everman, oak grove, south arlington), does that seem to spill over to the crowley area? I'm looking for a family friendly, safe, moderate area of middle income employed individuals. Any info helps, tell me what you know.

I know N. Crowley is a safe area. As far as schools in N. Crowley, they are about very integrated with blacks, whites & Mexicans. This has caused some problems, but it isn't as bad as other schools. Is Crowley just like this? I don't know, but it would be interesting to know.

I have lived in South Ft Worth up until recently, close to the sycamore/mccart intersection. Crime in our neighborhood has been steadily increased and it wasnt even really safe to go to our neighborhood wal-mart. I think you would do well to actually come and drive around the area before you commit to living there. If I were you, I would move to Crowley or Burleson before living in South Fort Worth. Safer.

Burleson has grown fast thru the years and always had a drug problem w/the teens....same as w/neighboring Joshua. But......they are nice areas...some very nice housing.....schools are probably not any worse than other public schools. Same is true w/south Arlington....Kennedale area......gonna have the same problems w/teens and school no matter where you go. ALWAYS best to check it out personally.

I will agree with this. There has been a big increase in crime in that specific area lately. My parents are near that intersection and almost every store has been robbed in the last year. Their neighbors have reported people stealing things out of their garages while they are home.

I live in Crowley near the main street where it meets 731 and find it extremely safe. We have lots of nice older homes for sale right now in the area. We have a neighborhood watch on our street (Malone), but we have had no crime in the area. The Fire and Police departments are less than 3 blocks away. Is Crowley safe? Probably the safest of the surrounding areas in the Fort Worth metroplex.

While crime at McCart & Sycamore School road may be up, and I can see why, I'm near Risinger and Hulen, and it's mighty quiet.

We purchased in March, and haven't regretted it for one second.
