“Eh”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

There is nothing there. Has potential, but right now - don't waste your time. The street is looking better all the time, but that is all it is a street - no businesses or attractions.

“Crack Head Ridden”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

I attend law school in this district. The area is full of drug addicts, prostitutes and muggers. I pack a pistol every day to school because the area is so horrible.

“Very dangerous area for white people to walk in.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

I'm from Jackson and if you are white in this area make sure you have a gun on you. It is a very dangerous part of town. Jackson has the 4th highest crime rate in the country. If you are looking for prostitutes though you'll find 100s here after the the sun goes down.
