It seems that when newcomers ask for neighborhood info for Norfolk everyone seems to point them to Ghent and Larchmont. In this economy, especially for families those two locations are unrealistic. There are fantastic, family friendly places such as Bayview, Bel-Aire, Tarralton, Roosevelt Gardens, Larrymore, Winona, and around the airport by the botanical gardens. I'm sure there are much more. It seems that most of the people who are making these reccommendations live in McMansionville areas of VB or Chesapeake. Remember not every family has 400+ to spend. Please, everyone give the other neighborhoods a chance!

I agree with you. Norfolk may have more seedy areas than say Virginia Beach or Chesapeake, but there are more than just two neighborhoods in the entire city of Norfolk that are liveable. There are many other neighborhoods that are decent affordable and SAFE. I actually think Norfolk is the city to look at if you want more of a community feel. The people are more grounded and down to earth IMO.
