"This is where I grew up, But I won't let my kids grow up here!"

S. Wayne Ave, right near the intersection of Apple Street is where I grew up. Back then, it wasn't such a bad neighborhood. Sure, there was an occasional fight, or someone got robbed, but nowadays it seems like there is some sort of violence every single day. The last time I visited (spring 2006) I seen a young kid, that I knew as a baby, getting arested for selling drugs.

I lived between Broad Street and Sullivant Avenue. Both of these major outlets provides direct access to anything you could want to do. COSI is about two miles away on Broad Street. There are fast food restuarants galore, including McDonalds, Wendys, White Castle, Burger King, KFC and Rally's all within 1 mile of S. Wayne Ave.

Westgate park is also less than a mile from my old house and is where I used to go to play almost every day. It's also the park I first "got to know" my wife when we were teenagers!

Overall i'd say that I have fond memories of living on S. Wayne Ave, but it is so run down and drug infested that I wouldn't want to live there now. Hopefully the Columbus Police can clean this neighborhood up before it's too late.
