Any why did it go downhill? Schools. At least thats why we moved out.
We shopped at Hypermart, Best Buy, Paper warehouse, TJ Max etc.
I lived down off 87th street by Blue Ridge for 10 years. We enjoyed living in a diverse neighboorhood there. Had a big nice field for the kids to play in. Homes were kept up etc. But the schools were not up to the calibur that they should have been so we moved to the burbs.
