"Great place to live"

We removed here from Melbourne over a year ago and bought a house when the market was low. 30 minutes driving from the city/darling harbour without toll. Everything is here, medical centres, close to M4 and M5, train near by, bus service everywhere, parks, hospital 10minutes close by, churches, schools, childcares, shopping of all kind. Homes and streets are older looking than Melbourne, granted it is an older city, but new homes and duplexes are refreshing the look. Really happy we bought here before the market started to rise.
A lot of young people here who at night time can drive nuts with their Mercedes or done up holdens. Have not seen any crimes of drugs like some people have mentioned, but I’m sure there is, it is everywhere can’t escape it but so far nothing. Overall lovey people so far of all nationalities and religion.

"Greenacre has the highest crime rate in Sydney"

Why isn’t no one mentioning the drug related gang wars?

Stuckrevolver Because there has been no "Drug Gang War" in the 49 years I have lived here, ... simples.
I expect you have given details to the police , ... but perhaps not.

alid2 You disagree that greenacre is a major drug and crime hub in sydney? I have lived there and it is not a safe place to live.

danielm39 People here will always defend their neighbourhood regardless of facts. 'A hidden gem', 'this suburb is no different to any other suburb in Sydney', 'People look out for each other here' are some dead giveaways. Suburbs that are safer and better off would be labelled as snooty. I live in Newport, a suburb that for some is both snooty and full of Centrelink recipients asking for a dollar at the bus stop. I do find alot of reviews here sincere and helpful though.
