"Modest family housing"

As it does with Cameron Trimble, Brown’s Creek runs along the eastern edge of the Napier area. That area from the creek to the railroad tracks did see some flooding during Nashville’s flash flood back in May.

Napier Park itself has a public indoor pool, but the Metro Parks page indicates that it’s closed this year. I haven’t been able to find out whether the flood had something to do with that.

Metro Housing Authority’s Napier Place apartments are in this neighborhood in the Claiborne street area. There are also many single-family houses throughout the Napier Park area. A few of the streets even have enough greenery to suit me!

The MTA’s bus #15 runs up and down Lafayette, and route #25 cuts down Charles Davis for a bit. I’m not finding any other public transport for the Napier area.

"Bad Area of Nashville compared to others."

Not to far away from the Lafayette neighborhood, Napier is in the southern area of Nashville. The divider that divides North Nashville from South Nashville is the interstate 40 area and this area of Nashville is on the southern end of I40.

For many individuals, the area is not the safest to be in after hours of the sun going down. The area is home to many of the gang members of Nashville. The area should be traveled through during the day light hours as many robberies take place here after dark. The area is not to far from downtown Nashville but far enough away that its like night and day when compared to downtown Nashville.

The area is traveled through with a number of individuals who live in the outskirts of Nashville in the southern areas of Nashville such as Nolensville. The area will be traveled through in order to get to downtown Nashville which is home to many local businesses such as the Wildhorse Saloon and Coyote Ugly. There are a number of other businesses that draw attention nightly offering numerous deals and steals of Nashville such as free nightly concerts.
