Gary > Merrillville > Crown Point

Gary used to be a nice place to live....crime started increasing, businesses started leaving (to Merrillville) and Gary quickly became a ghetto by the 1980s. At this time Merrillville was a peaceful and affordable place to live and Crown Point, still a country town out of the way of a busy urban life. From the 80s through the end of the 90s, Merrillville went from an affordable suburban escape to a suburban nightmare! Crime has increased so much, you would think you are in an inner city ghetto. So now, the new "escape" for people is Crown Point. But now in 2012, crime is increasing even there. Is there no safe AND affordable place for good citizens to live in this area?

To be honest, nowhere is safe these days! But about the only places I would live in that area is Munster, Highland, or the tri-town area. Those areas have kept prices high and infrastructure upkept. This means that crime that "should have" affected those towns by now has largely moved around them to cheaper places such as Merrillville. Merrillville is the new Gary. I will NOT be surprised if Crown Point goes downhill within the next 10-15 years and becomes the new Merrillville.
I live in the northeast side of Indy now (originally from Schererville) and even this "prime" area is having its issues!

You guys re just mad because my black brothers and sisters are moving up.
Just because theree are black people living next to byou now, doesn't mean its a ghetto now.
And to the person who said that Merrillville was like the inner city, you are ridiculous, LMAO..........I guess you've never been to the innercity before..........why don't you go there and stay for a week, then come back to merrillville and I garentee you will appreciate it more when you return.........if you return at all.

Gary has 52 murders this year. Gary has a few but had a lot of shooting. And there were some big incidents SOUTH of 30 in Merrillville/CP.
