Agree... Thanks Westside!  :)
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

I was fortunate enough to experience 5 Points and Riverside at ages 11 - 14  ('89 - '92) and again briefly at 17 ('95).  While I can't say much for the difference between the 70s/80s and my time during the 90s, it was still one of the best neighborhoods in the city.   I didn't exactly know that then but I most certainly know that now.

It actually bothers me that I was unaware (the ignorance of early youth) of what I had before me back then. I was never able to afford my children the same opportunity.  Granted rent/mortgages for the region have tripled over what we paid back then.
