In My Neighborhood in 33056>Question Details

vandresv, Home Buyer in Homestead, FL

Hello, I know that Opa Locka in general is not a good area to live. But what about this particular neighborhood

Asked by vandresv, Homestead, FL Wed Jun 6, 2012

? In http://www.crimereports.com does not look bad since December 2011 until present. And the crime map of trulia shows a low crime rate too. Should I believe those reports?
Thank you very much,
Andres

i live in the area.. and yes it is bad if you are not accustomed to "urban" living conditions. To be a bit more specific, since I've lived in the very near vicinity, my car has been burglarized twice (xeon head lights, then side view mirror); my neighbor's car was on bricks a few days later because thieves stole all 4 tires. so in short Opa Locka is notorious for car thieves. There is occasional gunfire and crime throughout the areas where the residents are not doing anything to evoke change.

Thank you very much Carlos. No, I had not heard the story before. But you say 7th ave and the 62nd street (I assume that is NW).. The neighborhood I am looking into is on the 162nd street and the 19th avenue.
I checked the crime rate on the address you provided me and it does look scary. But the one I am asking does not look bad on paper (or should I say on the screen :-)...Can you confirm your address and compare it with the one I asked for?

Thank you very much Carlos,
Have a wonderful day,
Andres.
