I agree to some extent that richmond can feel like an absolute craphole at times, but it's much better than it used to be about 10 years. You should count your blessings that Bridge Road and Vic Gardens have brightened up the area.
the only thing I agree about is the traffic, and the occasional wierdo walking around. Other than that I love Richmond,
Hi Micheller, I guess you are right. I remember Richmond being a lot more scummy a while back, but it is definately better.
And yes there ARE a lot of freaks and weirdo's running around Richmond.
ahhh cmon AJ, where's the love?
Richmond is awesome!! I walk everywhere so I don't really notice the peak hour traffic, and the office complex's that are being build really don't bother me too much, the more people the better. Ok I see your point about dodgy people, but there really aren't that many. In fact all the dodgy things about Richmond are some of the reasons I love it, like all the very dodgy Vietnamese restaurants on Vic Street!
