I can't say i'm shocked at all. Neighbors ALWAYS say, "Oh gosh, I would've never expected it in MY neighborhood." Yeah, Gardenside has been going downhill for at least 2 years now. I've seen so many scary, sketchy people in our neighborhood lately. Very, very sad. This was a wonderful neighborhood for families and kids for so many years. Sad that people want to try and turn it into a ghetto because of drugs. I can only hope that it gets better. We will definitely move within the next year or so.
