I lived in Old West Austin 22 years, and most of it has been torn razed and overbuilt with ugly macmansions and uglier condo complex. There's no neighborhood charm left, neighbors no longer walk in the neighborhood and instead stay in their cars, and the new people are hostile. Traffic is terriible even on such narrow streets, and it's no longer pet friendly as overbuilding has attracted coyotes to the neighborhood. Nearby Pease Park has been paved over with concrete, and the wildness there even 5 yrs. ago has been cleared out and the park, over 100 yrs. old, has been turned into a pedestrian mall. Truly sad, the destruction of this historic neighborhood is virtually a criminal act by real estate developers.
