I grew up in 32208. I was last back in JAX about 12 years ago, and I was shocked at how far the neighborhood had fallen. Businesses that I had been familiar with for years were boarded up (the original Joseph's Pizza location being one of the notable exceptions), and the residential areas had declined considerably. I doubt that the passage of 12 more years has improved it any.

Before I moved to 32218, I came up in 32208, on Norwood Ave. The neighborhood has always been ghetto, still is to this day. Golfair Blvd. is littered with mostly abandoned, boarded up businesses.
