There was a zombie hoard recently near The Cheesekeeper. I love that place I wish they would move to a safer location.

You bigots are worse than "zombies". For real. Your ignorance of the housing situation and people is amazing. Bet you go to church too and call yourself christian. Jesus wept. I imagine your attitudes get you what you deserve when dealing with other human beings. Don't breed your children to be as ignorant as you are. That is child abuse when they have to live in a world made up of all kinds of people.

Were they right outside of the door? How many were there?

That is scary.

Get rid of section 8, stop allowing landlords a free ride for renting to trash and criminals, and get rid of Eckert so the police can do their job.

Beware of the zombies that walk in the middle of the road between Walmart and SWIC. It IS getting worse every year. For example, I used to buy metrolink tickets at the ticket machine. I stopped doing that after getting hit up for money by zombies on multiple occasions. Some real creepy lurking types but hey I'm a sitting duck with cash in sight. Now I order tickets online and have them mailed to my house. This is the "zombie factor." You have to plan around them.

I started a post because I saw a sign on Freedom Drive advertising a $49 move-in special. But thanks to some good advice I was given, I decided not to move in.

It must be a terrible place to live. Are you going to move away from there?

$49.00 move in special? If that can attract anyone it must be a real sheet hole. Probably a big step up from East St Louis.

It sounds like they are referring to East St. Louis refugees.

Belleville has turned into a trashy place to live because yall rent to criminals. Section 8 has destroyed the city. I wouldn't want to live there. I graduated from Belleville East in 1990,lived in LincolnShire. We moved to a better/different neighborhood in 1995. The reason people are moving out is because the city has declined and my family is black. I don't want to live by trash, it could be white, black, latino, or Chinese trash is trash

That is truth. It's not a race thing at all, its a section 8 trash problem. So I guess that makes me a blatant racist. I hate trash of every color, size, shape and religion. It's a shame they let bvegas turn into what it is. And its all the mayors fault for letting these slum lords do it.

Funny, I tripped upon this while looking for something else. It struck a chord, though.

I grew up in Belleville. School, them work, took me elsewhere. Work and family bring me back pretty often. I usually grab a meal, maybe a drink while I'm there. I recently had a great time at a new restaurant on West Main.

Frequently, I get to thinking, maybe I should move back and buy one of those beautiful old brick homes. Then I read this and I'm reminded why I shouldn't. I've just grown too old and impatient to handle all that ignorance, negativity, and racism.

P.S. I'm thinking you meant to say "horde."

You forgot to mention CRIME, the main reason people are leaving Belleville, and others choosing not to move here. Was that a factor when you decided not to buy one of those homes in Belleville?

Not really. I moved from another town where some people had the same kind of attitude: it's not safe to go downtown at night, the only safe place to live is in small surrounding towns, etc.

My concerns were lengths of commutes to places I have to go, finding a nice old house I could afford, and decent schools. O'Fallon, BTW, has some of the best schools in Illinois outside the Chicago area, but I didn't care for the houses, and it was out of my way. I like Edwardsville for amenities, diversity, and, seemingly a more enlightened attitude, but it was far off the beaten path for me.

I've worked in some truly crime ridden areas, including East St. Louis, and what was, at the time, the highest per-capita murder rate neighborhood in St. Louis. what I found is, that if you aren't involved in the local drug/crime trade, and you treat people decently, your chances of being a random victim are pretty remote. Like I said, I go to Belleville fairly often, and have family there. It just seems the crime problem, although it certainly exists is overblown and there is a lot of hyperbole over Belleville "becoming the next East St. Louis".
