True. A decent place if you don't have school age kids.

That's one reason why i only said Pataskala "if" out east. Although, most good black people i've noticed don't want to live amongst animals either. It only takes one cousin and a handful of babies to spark the decline.

I'm more concerned about bringing the property value down.

I'm not crazy about Pataskala myself. The parts near 161 probably have the most potential since they are close to Granville and New Albany, but the rest of it is kind of junky tract homes IMO.

Pickerington has enough homes on the higher end to keep out the riff-raff, so the blacks you get there tend to be people like you? The apartments are a mixed bag, however. The older an apartment complex gets, the seedier the people tend to be.
The riffraff keeps growing...In all races. It's growing in such a way, that people on SSI are looking down on welfare, and people on welfare on looking down on homeless, when in all.. They're all related to leeching low-lifes with different types of seniority.

We can all agree that it only takes a few blocks to change a style of community. That's why i'm tired of it all(city limits). I don't want to feel enclosed, separated and only a stones throw from poverty. I'm at the point of needing space. I might like/not like the country, but i'm not talking about the sticks. I just think it's worth a try.

The trouble with Pataskala is that they merged with the whole township. They are always going to be stretched to thin because they have too much land and not enough money for infrastructure. Had the followed the normal progression of things, they would have simply annexed as stuff got developed and the end product would look a lot nicer.

As it stands now, I don't think Columbus is ever going to give them utilities, so unless they can get lines from Granville or Etna Township, the stuff along Broad is always going to be a wasteland.

I have no inside information on any of this. Just talking out of my arse/making an educated guess.

Somebody also made a good point about something on another board. If you're going to be stuck with well water, make sure you're on high ground and where the wells are relatively shallow. That way you're upstream from anything that might cause you cancer in the long run.

Hey, rent is rent to a landlord! Someone has to collect the rent! I could rent a dog house as long as someone was willing to crawl in there and pay month to month. Section 8 in a good thing as long as you have tenants that know their ass is out if they fk up your property! Get 'em out quick, pay some homies to ride by three nights a week a fire guns into the air.

^^^ and Blacklick south of the railroad tracks does indeed have the potential to be a mess 30 years from now. These are the Columbus parts of Blacklick. North of the railroad tracks, however, it's mostly higher end home including some of the highest high-end homes in the city. That part will always be okay because the riff raff can't afford to live on a 2 acre lot.
That's right E Bob! I don't like the trash regardless of color the paper might be. Southern Ohio hillbillies, traveling Mexicans, and ghetto blacks all live the same way...tear your shit up and try to make excuses for the damages.

At dinner in his white girlfriend's parents home, the dad was staring at him and daydreaming the dude in black face was a pimp and his daughter sitting there pregnant. Hilarious!!

If skin color is what brings down property values than that is a big problem and against the law. It should be the context of the character and the living styles that should matter. Hillbillies with money don't make them less of a hillbilly!

I did mentioned blacks and poor whites, both brings down the property value of the community, look at bottoms and hilltop.

Comfort level depends on what you're used to, your background and your budget. If you live in a majority East Side neighborhoods, they are just fine. Coming from Powell, it might be scary, but Far East Columbus near Reynoldsburg would surprise most people as would Berwick and Eastmoor. You would also be surprised at the high quality stuff you see along McNaughten Road. Not Dublin level, but easily comparable to the Columbus parts of the New Albany area, which are also nice.
Lots of white people live in these areas and take advantage of the cheap taxes, and send their kids to Catholic or Christian schools. This phenomenon is not limited to Columbus, by the way.
I'm guessing the OP was white, but if you are black, the black gentry tends to live in Berwick or along Sunbury Road. Not that black professionals don't live in the burbs.
Not so sure about Wolfe Park area it's too closed to the OSU Hospital East which is in the straight hood area. If you want to keep the riff rats out gotta stay away from COTA bus line.

Yeah, those are third generation 'billies' from West.V and parts of eastern Kentucky. And a few from southern Ohio's Portsmouth, Waverly, and Chillicothe. Not the good folks but the raggedy immoral hicks.

Once you cross Nelson and the railroad tracks, you're pretty much in Bexley. In fact, those railroad tracks are what has probably allowed Bexley to avoid getting swamped by the hood.

I ride my bike up and down Bryden frequently during the summer. That area is less intimidating than it looks.

The Bexley police department is who keeps the thugs out of Bexley. They know that once they go over that bridge heading east out if Eastgate across Nelson, the surveillance and pull overs are in effect immediately.
Having a bar-b- que at the little Nelson park, is as close to Bexley the hood will ever get to Bexley without getting stopped and questioned.
The only bad part of the Nelson Rd. area are those low income apartments ( Nelson park apt.) on Maryland ave. west of Nelson Rd. Blacks don't venture into Wolfe park at all, and since Franklin park was turned into the Conservatory, they stopped going there as much also. Summer jazz concerts are the only time you'll see more than ten blacks at a time in Franklin park nowadays.
