1 Reviews & Comments About District Heights


HomeSnacks User

Lived in District Heights. Wouldnt go back for all the money in the world. The apartments I lived in for a year had 5 murders happen within seeing distance of my living room window. I had to leave for the safety of my family.

Dont get me wrong, there are plenty of hard working and lovely people in the community. Unfortunately, the trouble makers are the worst of the worst, which brings the whole community down. I wish there was an answer to the issues I encountered while living there. For me though,it wasnt worth losing my life in search of a citys redemption.
