"Probably not a place you want to be"

I lived on 84th and NE Thompson for about two years while I was attending James Madison High School (which is the lcoal high school for this neighborhood) and I would not recommend living there to anyone who was not a masochist.

The houses themselves are okay. They're nothing to brag about but I've seen (and lived in) worse. The problem with this part of Thompson is the other people who live here. The street was always dirty, generally loud and obnoxious, and the neighbors were very unpleasant.

On my 18th birthday, my grandmother was assaulted outside my house by one of the neighbors, which then led to a street fight, police activity, and a lot of unnecessary discomfort. I moved out of the area a couple of years ago, but have since heard of two seperate shootings on my block of Thomspon, with one of the victims actually being killed.

It is close to Jason Lee Elementary, James Madison High School, Rocky Butte, The Gateway Shopping Center (and Transit Center) the 82nd bus, the MAX, and a few other places, but the neighborhoods directly to the south are much better, and far less violent.

So I do not recommend looking for houses on Thompson. To anyone. Bottom line.
