"Not an ideal neighborhood in my opinion"

We drive through this neighborhood a few times a year when we go to pick up our teenage neighbor who lives in the Krainz Woods neighborhood across Ryan. We always make sure our doors are locked when we stop at a traffic light. That sums up the basic mood and feeling you get when travelling through here.

It doesn't really matter what time of day or night you drive through here, especially on 7 mile. You are going to see riff-raff hanging around the corners, doing nothing but staring you down in your car. The gas stations on both sides of Ryan have loud and rowdy acting young people running in and out all day. I have actually stopped to get gas at the BP one, and let me tell you my head was on a swivel.

Surprisingly, the actual residential areas were not as bad as I imagined. The houses had lawns that were cut, and were pretty well maintained. You didn't see a bunch of rusted out cars everywhere like in some areas. Most of the blight was found along 7 mile actually.

There were buses running along all the major streets: 7 mile, Conant, East Nevada and Ryan. There weren't a lot of fast food joints, but there were Coney Island's and liquor stores.
Pros
  • Plenty of DOT buses for public transportation
Cons
  • High pedestrian areas, unfriendly looking locals

"Definitely Room for Improvement"

When you consider that this area has such a rich history to it, you can only imagine what it must have been like back in the day. Though there are still some historic areas intact, this is an area in need of a bit of revitalization. Sure it's close enough to the city and has some amenities nearby, but there is definitely room for improvement.

You can get in and around this part of town pretty easily, and that's one of the pros. You will find however that there isn't much for children to do or even much nightlife nearby. In the days when this was a thriving area then this must have been a different scene but it's changed as so many areas of town have.

There is hope that areas like this that are somehwere in the middle will come along and improve through time. Though it's not the worst part of town it's not the best either, and so there is plenty of room for some much needed changes.
Pros
  • Somewhere in the Middle on Everything--Not the Worst
  • Plenty of DOT buses for public transportation
Cons
  • Room for Improvement
  • Not Much to Do Around Here
  • High pedestrian areas, unfriendly looking locals
