There are a lot of proud, working class families in Richmond Heights. Many two parent, two income households raising children that attend area schools. Yes, they are predominantly black. Some kids do well and go to college, some do not.

You will see some suspect people riding around on bikes, people hanging out at any hour, etc... Although, no one is likely to have a problem there during the daytime.

As mentioned previously, Richmond Heights does benefit from some of the surrounding neighborhoods and schools that the children are bused to.

I think if you are from the area and already know people there you will know what to expect and may perceive the neighborhood as a step up from other areas.

I am unsure if I would recommend it to anyone from outside the area.

I lived a few hundred yards from Richmond Heights, the Falls area. Never a single problem. Middle class blacks at that time.

My friends moved in about a year go on Monroe and I just moved in near SW 146 terrace and 107. So far so good I would say.

Absolutely not. We just bought a house here in March, and while we had our reservations, we have been pleasantly surprised. Some people have a hard time getting over the fact that the neighborhood is predominately black. However, that is by design as it was constructed initially for African-American Vets returning from war. Most people who live here have been here forever, and they are so kind. My wife and kids feel comfortable walking by themselves, and even though I'm on the corner, I haven't had any issues. I've noticed more latinos and whites moving into the neighborhood. I suspect it will be gentrifying over the next 10 years. Look at the home prices in every direction of this neighborhood, they are through the roof. It's bound to spill over into this neighborhood.

We were going to buy a house on 146 & Buchanan st, beautiful new house, we went and walked around the neighborhood a couple of times during daytime, and although it seemed like a quiet place, it never felt like the right place for me.

Is SW 172 St & 117th Ave a bad place to live?

I have a brother-in-Law that lives on a lake in that area, he's been there about ten years and he loves it.
He doesn't have any children so I couldn't tell you anything about the schools in that area.

No worse or better than any area in Hialeah, West Miami or Even Kendall Lakes for that matter.
