you got that right kelly. its the high taxes and the prices of homes in fairmount its impossible to live there on one income.plus the yuppies dont help none either.they are the ones that call the cops on the kids that are on the corner ill tell you all one thing ill feel a lot safer walking home if i see a gang of kids on the corner with all the mugging going on im sure they would help you not hurt you. give them kids a chance or do you forget you were a kid at one time.if you look in any bars in fairmount you will notice they are filled with yuppies and they condemn every one else that drinks or smokes pot . they are the biggest closet junkies ever

Some changes are good for Fairmount, but the cost of living there is what forced alot of the real fairmount people out. The working class people of fairmount who did the fighting to keep the place good were chased out by high price homes and even worse high taxes. There were Old people who lived and made the area good who were forced to sell because the fixed incomes didnt meet the demanding costly changes of fairmount and then the yuppies came in and it seemed like they got more say on how things should be. I just want to say to the lucky people who were able to stick it out "goodonyah" mate"

Yea it has changed b/c of all the yuppies moving in. You don't see all them stores like back in the day and you really dont think our parents the true fairmounters tell us all the time how it used to be.And the ones that live here know whats going on with the changes not the ones that visit once in a while. So I think we really do know how it used to be.(Hockey behind the prison)(beatos right on the corner)(the bar on the corner)so i guess the fairmounters that are still here can't keep it the same b/c of people puttin us down and they want a change.

Fairmount, lots have changed but i guess hanging on 25th and Parrish hasnt changed and the cops chasing them also hasnt changed. Kids feel the honor of a long tradition of hanging there and being chased by the cops. The only differance is now there isnt a Beato's to go into and eat. The fairmount I remember in not the fairmount of today. W ahd Maxine's on 25th St and Judson. What about Pete,s candy store on 24th St. The kids now a days wuld have no clue about how great Fairmount really was. I now go to fairmount when in the statesand I dont know hardly anyone. it seems like most of the people left and we all go to Mckenna's hoping to run into our past. All my best frineds come out of Fairmount and til this very day they are still my friends. Real fairmount would know what I am talking about... rite Rosco.... see you on the net and if anyone who know Andrea Sahm tell her to E-mail me k_griffin71@hotmail.com

I hang on 25th and Parrish all the time does anyone really think that i would or anyone that hangs there let someone break into houses, cars, mug people, or anything. NOPE I REALLY DONT THINK SO. So its going to keep on happening and when we see it happen we wont do anything about it just because the cops want to kick us off the corner all the time. We make the true fairmounters like the older ones feel safe to sit outside to get fresh air or go to the store. So really everyone needs to think about it

Do you want to know why we are letting this happen to the neighborhood, b/c the cops are to worried about kicking people off the corner. Everthing has happend (everywhere) but 25th street where they are mostly concerned about hanging on the corner. The cops need to stop wasting their time and worry about the real crimes.

I came across the website and really liked the fact that we all have fond memories of the neighborhood. I grew up on Woodstock St. and remember Olap's bar. When Olap's was open you had no fear walking on Brown Street. Every corner has a few guys hanging out and you knew you were safe. I remember Al Majestics on Parish St. Steven's store accross the street ( Ms. Stevens was always mean so you wanted Mr/ Stevens when asking for candy). Maxine's corner store where you could get anything you needed. He store was something that we don't see anymore. Milty's Bar on 24th street where you could get quarts of beer when you were underage. Beato's, Terri's ahhh the good old days.

I hope everyong has a great Weekend. Erik

Hi, I've posted some information about the latest mugging in the Forum. That is really the appropriate place for this kind of discussion. The guestbook is meant to serve as a place for visitors to the site to say hello, not as a general purpose message board.

SHE WAS KNOCKED DOWN & ROBBED (BLEEDING FROM THE HEAD) WHY IS EVERYONE LETTING THIS HAPPEN TO SUCH A NICE NEIGHBORHOOD & AGAIN WHERE WERE THE COPS.

Fairmounters need to be aware of the problems in the neighborhhood - 3 black men were spotted on 24th & Brown @ approx. 9:30pm on Thursday, 3/31 wearing masks & hoods over their heads, men came out of Jumbo's but the 3 hoodlums jumped in a car on Bucknell & drove off, also I heard of a home invasion on Parrish St. If the cops were more concerned about this instead of chasing kids off of corner maybe this would not be happening. If kids were on the corners I think these thugs would not be doing what they are doing. Also when cops are called to chase kids from corners they are there almost immediately but when they are called for robberies or people that look suspicious it takes forever & by the time they do arrive they are long gone.
