Don't live here

I grew up in the midst of all this bullshit, as well as in the middle of Midtown. Both Spenard and Midtown have been and continue to be the worst places you can live in Anchorage save Mountain View. If you enjoy getting robbed, assaulted, burgled, and having your car broken into or stolen, these are all great places to live. Midtown especially, if you love being murdered, Midtown is your place! Back to Spenard. All the above applies, but replace murder with uncontrollable rape if you're a young native/white woman and replace murder with assault if you're a kid trying to get to school. Don't carry any sort of cash, drugs, or confidence here; it will be taken from you, most likely from a group of drunk homeless people with nothing better to do. This and Midtown, Mountain View, Fairview, and Government Hill are AWFUL place to live. DO NOT RAISE YOUR CHILDREN HERE, THE SHIT I SAW FUCKED ME UP FOR LIFE. Give it a pass for now until they can get the crime under control, which definitely isn't any time soon.
