I lived in hammond for like 6 years and loved it
I've lived in Hammond most of my life. I was a teacher there for several years and my children went school in Hammond for all of their education. I found the schools to be very good. I've lived in the same house for twenty years and have never had been robbed or had any other crime committed on me or my property. I don't live in a ritzy neighborhood that's gated. I live right by the interstate in a 58,000.00 house when I bought it 20 years ago. It's a wonderful place to live and raise children!!
There are great restaurants and SLU is here and they put on all kind of events and entertainment. We also have Columbia Theater which puts on plays. Also we have a great movie theater, skate park, safari quest, laser tag, children's museum, open air mall, many parks, and recreation. We're 50 min. from Baton Rouge and a hour from New Orleans.
Even though Hammond isn't as small a town as when we moved up here from River Ridge in 87, I think it's still a great town that still had a bit of the small town feel to it. The people for the most part are courteous to each other and do try to look out for each other.
Good- still has a small town vibe. Bad- traffic can be heavy at times. I don't think the roads can match the increased traffic.
I live in Hammond apartment and I love da Hammond toula natalbany tickfaw etc area I love how ponchatoula has a good strawberry festival and has a gator in middle of town no udda city I heard of besides toula has live animal in middle of town
