"Depressing and Dangerous"

Let’s start where you have to start when it comes to neighborhoods in Richmond, with crime concerns.
In the last 6 months there has been one murder here in the Coronado neighborhood and one murder just outside of this neighborhood. During the same period there have been over 100 assaults and about half as many robberies.

Now for me that is enough of a crime worry to disqualify this neighborhood.

Even if that weren’t though there are other problems here as well, such as the underperforming schools and the rather rundown look to the neighborhood overall. Though there are some nicely maintained bungalow houses here, many of the homes just look rather ramshackle. There are some odd looking developments on the western end of Coronado where homes are set up around a play area, but they have kind of an abandoned look to them which is in no way inviting.

There are a lot of bars on windows, gates and doores all over the place, which suggests to me that living here is like living in a prison. All fairly depressing, overall.

I can’t recommend it.
