What has changed the most about the neighborhood you grew up in?

Do things seem smaller and unchanged or totally different, when you go back?

The neighborhood I grew up in is in the city and I it's horrible. We moved from the city when I was 11.  There is not enough money in the world to have me go back there. The houses are falling apart because no one takes care of anything there anymore. We moved out to the country when I was 11 and that neighborhood is still the same. I loved living there and would move there in a heartbeat if I could. I also love the neighborhood that I am living in now and my son is in a great school.

The neighborhood I grew up in no longer has kids running around everywhere, & there are more vacant houses & rental properties than there are families who own their homes. Sad.

The neighborhood I grew up in is no longer there.  Our home and the neighbors homes are knocked down and it is a shopping center.  The farmers across the street are housing developments.

My neighborhood looks the same. The only major changes are the neighbors themselves.

It has more religious people than it did when I was a child, but it is still quite diverse. We live four blocks from the house I grew up in.

Less kids...more elderly I would say.  My parents are in there 70s now.

The area I grew up in has gone down hill and is, or was the last time I drove over there, on the verg of becoming almost slummy. Hopefully it's gotten better again.  I haven't been back in the area for over 20 years, and to be honest, don't have a desire to either.
