2)Or the West side of the city of Phoenix, Arizona the 4th largest city in the US.
East siders (Mesa, Tempe, etc) think we're all paisas that run meth labs but it's not true the West Valley ranges from really great suburbs like Verrado to the projects but even those aren't too bad compared to any big city.
West PHX itself is one of the hotspots along with the south side for AZ hoods and barrios but you'll probably be fine some of our stuff is just getting old.
Our county is home of Joe Arpaio a human rights abuser.
Home of great private schools and eh public schools. I go to one of the best public schools around and half the teachers can't teach and came here as a last choice from some state that requires more. But there's some great ones.
Generally affordable housing as opposed to LA or other cities.
Many of us are from other places California, Texas, Mexico, I've lived here my whole life.
Some of the best affordable Mexican food this side of the border along with other great places (asian chicken places, fast food, nice restaurants from all backgrounds)
West phoenix is massive in size, reachings across hundreds and hundreds of acres...all of which are pure ghetto trash.
The phoenix police department has more shootings, drug-related crimes, drive-bys, theft, auto-theft, car-accidents, and homicides in the west valley more than anywhere else in the entire county.
90% of the buildings and businesses in west phoenix were built in the 70's, and half of them are rotted down to the foundation. almost every street corner in west phoenix has a bum or a drug dealer standing on it...usually surrounded by 20 people waiting for the 5pm bus to arrive.
West Phoenix is known for its populations of: White Trash, Illegal Mexicans, Ghetto Black people, and Wigger Druggie Rednecks.
The mexican mafia deals most of its drugs in west phoenix.
Meth Labs and Drug-Labs are literally on every single residential street, even new home developments. Phoenix Police department has more meth busts and home-crack lab busts here than any area in the state. All of these meth labs are run by poor white trash with 10 kids on welfare.
Nobody has a car in west phoenix, they ride the city bus which they also Piss on. The people that do have a car drive a primer-grey 1992 Nissan Sentra, and put confederate flag stickers on the bumper while listening to Gangster Rap...these drivers are usually 18 year old white guys who dropped out of school.
The schools in the West side have some of the highest drop-out rates in the country...some schools have 50% illegal mexicans who cant speak english. Those who do graduate from the west side usually do so with a 1.0 GPA and go on to work at a grocery store as a janitor.
The best cuisine in the west side is 24-Hour mexican fast food, half of which have been shut down by the health department because of unsanitary conditions.
A lot of professionals work on the west side, and those that do hate their lives because they have to drive into the west valley every morning. They usually quit their jobs out of disgust.
Crime, Drugs, Trash people, and Heavy pollution and smog makes the West side of Phoenix the most miserable, ugly, crime-infested, run-down area of the entire metro area.
I would compare west phoenix with parts of East Los Angeles, but without the crips and bloods.
Mike: Yah, they must be from 50th Avenue and Olive in West Phoenix with the rest of the trash.
