Looking to buy in Lowell. I know some of the area but not the whole thing. More of what I know is "Old Lowell" and I know they are doing a lot of work.
I know the Belvidere and Highland areas are good. How is South Lowell, Gorham street near the Chelmsford line/ Good Thymes/ Cemetery area?
Any help is truely appreciated. House hunting all over Lowell and this is the area I know very little about other than it USE to be a pretty bad area but they did it over years ago. Not sure how crime is now though...
I live in the area

I am in dracut 3 minute drive from lowell..more on the lowell/dracut line which to me personally is one of the best parts...right on the boulevard this area has a lot of things places to eat, things to do and in general to me is one of the top areas..gorham street is alright but wouldn't be my top choice.. I would stay closer to the dracut line just because dracut is known as a "richer town" it also has its low parts of course but where I live the closest part of lowell as I said is the boulevard is the nicest and I'd say one of the safest parts. I have lived here for 17 years and have barely heard anything bad going on around this part. The best thing to keep in mind is that lowell is a city and a pretty good size one and growing so crime and stuff like that is just going to be higher in general but my best advice is stay on the side streets where houses are further apart and look a little more "high class" and I'm not saying anything bad about the "bad" parts of lowell or "lower income" parts because I am no where near a rich type of family with a big house myself but in reality there is a good amount of crimes and who doesn't want to be safe especially when moving into a new house in an area your not completely familiar with.

There are no best parts, why would you consider moving there if you have a choice other-wise? unless you like b&e's drive-bys and druggies i'd look else-where!!
