  1. That's where all the former "Safari" people go now.

  2. Classy place, and with a new and expanded homeless center coming we can expect more. Its a new kind of urban revitalization. Destroy the place and scare the middle class away until it cannot get any worse. Would not surprise me if Baileys never gets developed. No wonder Avalon Bay high tailed it out of there. Murders by MS 13 in our parks and Columbia Pike becoming El Centro, the land of shoot outs.

  3. I go to La Paz which is right across the street and never have a problem. There are expensive town homes being built by the Fire Station and the homes behind the current homeless shelter are nice. I am middle class and don't plan on going anywhere.

    1. I rented an efficiency at Barcroft Plaza when I first graduated from college, and though it wasn't Park Avenue, it also wasn't Squalor Central.

      Thank you for providing perspective. Some people on this site are stuck in perpetual "moan mode" and offer no genuine insight.

    3. Then you should move back to Barcroft Plaza. I am sure you will get a fix for whatever you need.
