Reviews of Widdop Crescent, Hampton East
"First Time Buyers Dream"
The street is wide beautiful, surrounded by trees, and I look forward to getting home from work every day.
It is not as dynamic as say living in Brunswick East, or Fitzroy, but we have made a choice that we would like to start a family, and the quietness and privacy.
We love our backyard and having a BBQ with freinds over the weekend.
Not too faraway from Blue Dish for a great coffee and a meal, or Southland for a bit of shopping and a movie night out.
It has many parks and it is such a joy to go fro a walk or a ride and not be scared you will be attacked. We have had no robberies, Yet when I lived in Brunswick East, we robbed three times in less than 3 years.
I would feel safe leaving my front door unlocked or opened for air in this neighbourhood...and not having to triple check that all the traps for anti -theft are in place. This street is peaceful and calming. Wonderfull!
Though the commission flats are near-by, and this is a No No in some people's books, let me tell you, they are very nice people too, just trying to live their life or have a normal childhood....there is no evidence or links of violence in our neighbourhood, we have not had once the police pull over for an incident in the 10 years I have lived here.

"Housing Commision Estates Equals Messed-up, Weird & mostly drug using idiots!"
Basterfeild Park or as those close to it call it the duck pond is seriously the best thing about this street. I would say 95% of the people residing in either the leith cresent or bluff road housing commision estates are comple imbiciles who use whatever drugs they can obtain, mostly prescription pills, that have no idea what respect (for a start) means. Then they get bored or who knows what and start fights often resulting in the police being called.The other 5% are legitimally decent people and I really feel that they should not have to live amongst these animals. Department Of Housing...DO SOMETHING!!!
Unfortunately, my toddler, partner and myself have lived here for more than 3 years.
For the people in private housing living close to these estates as we know no-one seems prepared to fix any problems. Everyone had an opinion about heritage listing the leith cresent/terrens close estates a year or so ago. But, I only read one opinion written by someone on the estate...the rest were written by private householders. I can't stand these living conditions so I'm going into private rental far, far away A.S.A.P. Thanks.
