  1. Built as student housing in the 70s, this is now home to many low income families, a disproportionate number of whom are minorities. Receives an undeserved reputation as a bad area, when you're many times more likely to be a victim of crime on the UW campus than in Allied neighborhood. Proof that extreme racism and classism thrives in this "liberal" city. Posted by: greenapplemix on Jul 10, 2008 (4) (2)
  2. Oh please, Langdon St. is the most dangerous street in Madison. Alcohol plus testosterone plus repressed homosexuality don't mix! Posted by: guitom on Dec 02, 2009 (2) (1)
  3. Only folks who haven't lived in a city bigger than Madison think this is a very threatening neighborhood. I wouldn't want to live there, but believe me, neighborhoods get a whole lot scarier. I grew up 2 blocks away and I'm pretty sure it wasn't ever student housing, just affordable/low income housing. Posted by: Anonymous on Aug 29, 2009 (1) (0)
  4. I lived there for 4 years and never had a problem. Posted by: Anonymous on Jan 03, 2010 (0) (0)
  5. you will be shot/raped/mugged if you ever go here. Posted by: Anonymous on Jun 24, 2009 (0) (4)
  6. The known "sketchy" neighborhood in Madison... Stay away from here if at all possible... especially after dark! Posted by: BadgerGirl53706 on May 11, 2008 (1) (6)
