In Griffith, it seems like you can get more house for less money than you would in most towns in the area. It looks somewhat run-down, but I've always thought it was mostly a safe town, in my opinion. I still live at home in Highland, but am starting a second job soon so I'm planning on moving out of the 'rents house (I'd really, really like to buy a starter home). What's everyone's opinion on Griffith?

I think it's fine. Affordable housing stock - and for the most part (but there are morons everywhere) it's a decent, hardworking blue collar town.

Hi I've lived in Griffith now for 7 years and I have not had any problems. Taxes are a bit much tho.

Its a good place for the first time buyer. Affordable, good location, and a nice down to earth place. I don't think Griffith could be called rundown though, the residential housing is in good to excellent shape overall, its a just a few commercial buildings scattered around that look tired and old looking.
