I grew up in Clifton Heights and Westbrook Park, and moved out right around when I was starting high school in '03, and pretty much completely lost touch with everybody in the area and the area itself since. I keep hearing on this site and from other people how much the area supposedly declined and how "ghetto" it supposedly is right now, and considering the fact that that place will always be my "home", because of the 14 or so years of my life I lived there, I'd like to know how it really is nowadays, and what's happened since I moved.

I mean I have been in the area a couple of times since I moved, and in Landsdowne/bordering parts of Clifton a lot more often, but it's different than being there all the time because you can't really get a feel for a place if you don't live there or spend a lot of time there.

Thanks in advance.
