My city house was a lot further than a mile from the ghetto. Now it's in the ghetto. Your time is coming.
I rather live near somebody with 70 cats then in the ghetto.
Until I was about 10, I could ride my bike up to Palchala's Deli, Avenue Pizza and Sub, etc. and not have to lock it out front. I would have to lock it if I went to Amherst Bowling Lanes or Allied Bowling Lanes. After 1967 or so, a bike lock only slowed them down a bit. We had to take turns standing guard over the bikes and take turns going into the store. We would have to bring our bikes into the basement at night

I have been living where I do now for 17 years and it has gotten much less ghetto. First there was a nearby massive WWII era housing project torn down and replaced with single family subsidized plastic housing which reduced the density and brought in higher class underclass. Then when Bush ruined the economy, a bunch of people in my immediate neighborhood who should not have been given loans lost their houses. When Obama improved the market, some smart people bought the foreclosed houses, fixed them up, and sold them for a healthy profit to more responsible people. The value of my house has more than doubled since 1996
Well when your neighborhood starts to become "diverse" I hope you recognize it's time to relocate while you can still turn a profit. Luckily I did! If I had waited a few more years it would have been another story.

And it wasn't Bush who was responsible for those bad loans, it was Barney Frank and his ilk!

It was diverse when I bought the house. It's less diverse now. I am not going anywhere. My kids went to a high school that is 50% black and they got along just fine. Five college graduates (three with advanced degrees) who don't talk like idiots, don't have tattoos, don't smoke cigarettes, don't use drugs, don't have bastard children, don't use double negatives, don't sag their pants or wear sideways hats...

My family and I both move freely through the ghetto without any major problems. I read my kids the names of people nearby who are victims and perpetrators of murders and they know many of them since grade school. I move freely about the ghetto, rarely carrying a gun (usually one n my glove box) without fear. Without fear because I have ALWAYS treated people fairly and never lied on them.

My wife drives a school bus full of thugs, and she moves about the ghetto without fear.

Thugs are like dogs. They attack when they smell fear. But you already knew that.

I will stay put and pay down my tiny little mortgage for another 13 years

That's what your present neighborhood will be like with the upcoming diversity.

My garage at my city home was burglarized twice but not from the locals. The offenders were from the quickly spreading ghetto. They came from where the money was not to where the money was. No doubt this is happening in your neighborhood as I speak! Don't wait too long to relocate. The sooner the better.

Another question, Neocon

Back in the 60's there was a joke about "white flight"...

Did you hear about the flamingos who moved out to Cheektowaga and put two Polish people on their front lawn

Lancaster and Depew are more or less East Cheektowaga

Did you have flamingos on your lawn?

Or a lawn jockey?

By the way, my father's older sister moved out to Darien in the 60's and had a lawn jockey

I am going nowhere

I refuse to live in fear

As I recall, you live in either Lancaster or Depew. Do you think you don't have a-holes of whatever color out there?

As a matter of fact, it is more dangerous living out there because it is more likely that you or a family member will be killed in a car accident

My father was "Born in the Ward" and grew up in South Buffalo. My mother was born and raised out in Medina/Gasport/Lockport

When my neighborhood started to become "diverse", my father wanted to move us to the suburbs. My mother resisted because she was convinced that the suburbs hid their crime stats. We stayed in the city

I am glad my mother won that fight because I did not grow up to be a drugged out suburban pussy

Back when I was briefly a "deputy" (jail guard) in the Erie County Holding Center,,,,Oh no...I just tipped my hand a little bit......one of the biggest insults was for one inmate to call another inmate a "garage burglar"

By the way, don't bother trying to ruin her the way they they ruined Paula Dean. She died about 30 years ago
