lived in j-ville for 25 years of my 26 year life. born and raised all over jacksonville from the hood to the burbs. All i can say is it depends on you and your lifestyle if jax is right for you. were i stayed i witnessed pl getting thier head blown off by a gun. I witnessed crack head light up a pipe in the middle of the raod. seen the police taze a man till he started shitting on his self. watched hood rats fight over a men. white black mexocan all alike. all the kids do in school is hump. nothing to do in jacksonville. its like staying in a rural little town but on a bigger scale. im ghetto and lived in the ghetto and burbs all my life. i stay in south east asia now with my wife in singapore. I dreamed of the days when i would make it out. police lock up every one that moves in that town. if you drive thier is a 75 % chance that you will get pulled over. raciest white folk are very populated in jax. my advice would be to move thier because its cheap. just move to somewere safe. theirs plenty of safe places and lots of bad places. im come back to jacksonville for the holidays. if you need a help hit me up at binder921@gmail.com

I am from S.Africa 1 yr, 4 yrs PuertoRico, Hawaii 6months, 10 years NYC, 5 yrs Atlanta. Love it in Atlanta, many success here, heard many bad for Atlanta, but I found out it gave me 1000% more than 10 yrs in NYC.
Now I want to move to Jacksonville, FL like forever kind. In longterm, Jkvill should be very important city for it's location, metro size, infrastructures.p
I have noticed on Google, Jkvill have too many neighborhood roads unpaved, only sand/grass?
Crime comments, gangs/thugs following, how serious is that?? We have gangs in Atlanta, blood etc, got robbed 5 times but thats not a problem for me, I do business in rough, bad hoods.
How is it comparing to Atlanta??
Anyone can compare Jacksonville vs Atlanta??
Crime sure is bad in Jkville it is obvious by comments here. But what is also a fact is there are houses $400,000 so there has to be good neighborhoods too.
.. great place to be if you have money to expand the country of wealth. just make sure you dont get scammed. lots of scammers

Moved here from the cold Northeast 24 years ago and never looked back.

If you like extended summers, not being land locked (no beaches), great airport with many direct flights (vegas, NYC etc) classic cars, riding harleys, golfing, no state tax, and plenty of beautiful scenery then JAX,Fl is a great place to live.

Many pro football players who retired or moved on to other NFL teams have chosen to maintain a residence in Jax. Even Tom Coughlin still maintains a residence in Sawgrass.

I moved to Jax in 2008 and compared to the midwest and other cities of its size its a nice place to live. The city is up and coming and the beaches and weather are very pleasant. Coming from the midwest it was definitely a culture shock but in a good way because of its diversity. I think the entire state of Florida is awesome.. As far as crime, unfortunately its everywhere and its BAD everywhere you cant get away from it. Having said that the lower income areas are not nearly as bad as some of the other cities ive been in. The main prob I have is the downtown area..Jacksonville downtown could be very beautiful but because a church owns most of it, a lot of that area is not being used to its potential and is just going to waist. I think once the downtown area is revitalized J'ville will be an even better place to live.

-what about 24hr gyms (big like lifetime or la fitness not anytime fitness)
-crime is probably in the ghetto, I read over 100+ murders over 70 were black in JAX this year
-the left is less there then elsewhere
-etc.

it sounds decent to me

I've been here 30 years. Save your children and run as fast as you can out of this hell hole. They will lock your children up for any reason and charge them as adults. And destroy you entire family if they can. Run save your life and your family. They are a racist evil bastards here, look at support Cristian Fernandez on Facebook what they are doing to that 12 year old Hispanic child. You are better than this place.
