The area of 79th Ave north of Thunderbird....near the high school.
Any problems in the area?
Is it a decent neighborhood?
A friend was asking about a rental property there and I do not know myself, so I thought I would ask.

Thx!

Personally? If it’s west of the I17 and south of the 101, I’d avoid it.

It was a real nice area 20 years ago when far north Peoria was still the sticks. I would say it is still decent/average. I know a person that's lived around there for a while. They left their garage door open overnight resulting in a stolen mp3 player and sunglasses from unlocked vehicles. Also, an attempted break in that was scared off by the dog. They've since got an alarm system.

You can drive 2 miles south to Peoria ave, and the area is pretty rough or 2-3 miles north to Union Hills/Bell and you're in an more upscale part of town.

This phenomenon exists throughout the whole Phoenix area. I've even seen 3 story mansions across an arterial street from literal crack dens in South Phoenix.

Pm me any specific questions.

I agree.  That block of west Phoenix has always been meh even though there still are some nice areas in Northwest Peoria/Glendale.  When Arrowhead was the place to be in Northwest Phoenix in the late 90's and early 2000's it really was good area but it's going backward, like the area around 75th and Camelback when it was nice during the 80's.  I was in the Arrowhead mall area a few weeks ago and it is defiantly not nice like it was 20 or even 10 years ago.

As a previous poster said, you really have to get north of the 101 to get out of the shit it seems going west of I-17. Really, anything south of Union hills and west of 32nd street; and again..it's so damn pocketed.  There are some great areas in the west valley, and you go one block in any direction and you're driving past homeless encampments.

75th and T-bird was always right on the boarder of the crappiest parts of Peoria and I assume it's still that way.

That’d be a no from me dawg. Only places in Phoenix I’d live are by Camelback Mountain or so far North it might as well be Anthem.

Granted there’s places in the East Valley now that I wouldn’t live.

I completely disagree and it shows how people may talk without even knowing about an area. That area your describing is just south of P83 its fantastic and close to all the baseball fields, entertainment, mall, eateries you name it. I live a little further North. Also conversely its just North of Shooters World at Cactus and the 60 junction. Great access to the 101 freeway and the 60. You also have Banner Thunderbird hospital a level 1 facility that also has Psychiatrics specialties which is a rarer thing. A bigger plus is that the schools in the People and Glendale Districts in that are are mostly all solid performers with most receiving at least a B grade in performance.

Yeah, I'm not sure the other posters are even talking about the same place.

Im in the area.Actually near 81st/sweetwater moved there last summer and we toured alot of homes and areas.IMO general area is not bad to me but like one said there are pockets of good and bad saw this all over the phx area.

Like one said near peoria ave was not that great to me either and north of union hills off 83rd going to pleasant has some nice spots.We ended up there since we wanted to be on the west side to get out of town to river or glamis quicker as well plus be close to a lake.

Agreed. It's a nice neighborhood.

There's a lot of acreages north of Centennial High. There's a gated community further up 79th by Greenway Rd. Anywhere can be hit or miss depending on the neighbors.
