I'm considering purchasing a home in Addison. I've rented here for a few years and have had no problems with crime. Addison has such a bad "rep" that I'm a little hesitant. I know the areas to stay away from, and which neighborhoods are good. I love how central Addison is and how close to all the highways. I've become fond of Addison over the years. My question is directed to Addison residents...If you had to buy a house in today's market, would you purchase again in Addison? How do you feel about the schools? The high hispanic population has me worried about future white flight, housing values, schools performance etc.

I've lived in Addison for nearly 27 years, attended Addison schools, and I'm not involved in gangs, drugs or any other BS that Addison seems to be sterotyped with. I not only grew up in Addison I also purchased a home just about a year ago in Addison as well. As long as you stay away from Michael Lane and that side of Lake Street, and the Addison post office you'll be fine. Kings Point has great homes in a safe neighborhood, Westwood etc. Just stay closer to Army Trail. Relax people; Addison isn't a bad town, I'd be interested in hearing which towns are perfectly safe, have NO gang members, NEVER have ANY break ins etc etc. Please enlighten me. The hispanic community is very dominant. .but EVERY hispanic in the town IS NOT a bad person. In my opinion, school systems are great, as long as you have a child willing to learn.

Common Sense and Game Time Dine don't know what they are talking about. Addison is a far better town than some others in the area.

Not all Hispanics are bad or low class, just like not all whites are good or rich... You sound racist. I'm a Mexican- American woman with a $200K+ yearly household income in California. I am positive that is a lot more than your household income. Go figure......

Um...why are you commenting in a discussion forum so far from home? To be honest itís not racist at all to say Hispanics ruin schools, neighborhoods, everything else they touch. Name one neighborhood, or anything thriving after these people move in. Look at the state of California. There are minorities that actually thrive wherever they go and it damn sure ainít Hispanics. Iíve been around long enough and seen enough.

That isn't close to true, I've lived hear most of my life and never even seen Latin kings standing around except one very small area!

If ANY gangbanger so much as sets a black or Hispanic foot in the domain I master, Melrose Park, I will have their asses in a sling, I and Pete Venute promise you that.
