Great news! The drug dealers at (or around) 2912 N Ridgeway (green house, second north from George St) have been evicted! The neighborhood is already noticeably quieter.

Hopefully the landlord will bring us some new, nicer neighbors.

That is great news. However, I never knew drug dealers lived there. I do hope that nicer neighbors come this time around.

I'm also glad the neighborhood is getting quieter.

I grew up around Ridgeway and Armitage over thirty years ago. Although I am long gone I still have an attachment to the Old Neighborhood. I'm glad to see by your website that someone is still keeping an eye on it.

Anonymous 2:09pm, how was that area when you lived there?

Thanks for your comment.

From the old neighborhood post:A lot less crime. No real drug problem Unfortunately the area gave way to "White Flight Syndrom" in the 1970's. Here is a trivia question for you. What was the Area around Funston School(Central Park and Armitage) Originally called?

I was born in the early 90s, so I really don't know, but I'll take a guess: whiteville?

As for a lot less crime back then, that's good.
