Jeez, we routinely go to Pueblo up until closing time. The empty parking lot can be a bit eerie at night even with the Pueblo rentacop but never had gun shots.

Probably one of the most unsafe areas to live on St Croix. Only behind Grove in my opinion.

East of Christiansted is best IMHO.

Are you serious???

You are inferring that certain areas are best because they're predominantly populated by people of lighter pigmentation. Yes, it is always about pigmentation, so please don't deny it, we all know better.

I commend the poster for inquiring about Williams Delight. Some of the friendliest people I've ever met reside in Williams Delight.

I don't understand all the comments about danger. I live in Tampa. It is the most dangerous area in the country for pedestrians and cyclists. The last two pedestrians who were killed got struck by multiple vehicles. Some weeks ago, a guy racing down a heavily pedestrian-traffic area killed a pregnant mom and the baby she was pushing in a stroller. Some weeks ago, a man confronted a family in a parking lot because they had parked in a handicap spot...he ended up shooting and killing the father.

Y'all wanna see danger, move to Florida. Williams Delight is a cakewalk in comparison.

Don't tell me crap about per capita murder rates either. Most of those murders are retaliation. If you kill someone's family member on St. Croix, you are walking dead.

I'm in FL now.
Lady Lake location.
No gunshots.
No roosters, chickens either!
No stray animals, no garbage nor potholes on de roads dem.

My home in STT is in a small quiet area in Dorothea and majority of my neighbors are black.

Haven't met any neighbors up here except for lovely Puerto Rican couple across the street.

Different strokes for different folks.
People tend to migrate to where they're going to be most comfortable and safe when they can.

Sadly that is the mentality. I refused to live east because of that. When I talk about STX being segregated everyone yells at me. She basically confirmed what I always say.

Personally WEST IS BEST... but of corse STT is better hahaahha!

I work for the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.
I could tell you some stories.
There's probably a meth lab a few houses away from yours, and at least one of the houses in your neighborhood has been converted into a marijuana grow house...there are thousands of them. Not all crime is loud and obvious, or committed by people of dark pigmentation.

I am but I don't steer customers.
They choose where and what they wish to see and buy.
Can't comment on crime, neighborhood. They must do their own homework in that regard.

I live in Houston part of the year and St Croix for the rest of the year. One has a population of 5 million and the other 50 thousand. St Croix just had 3 homicides in 1 week compared to 1 in Houston.

I am constantly amazed that the VI news reports more shootings than are reported in the Houston. And yes, its always involving people of color. It's not prejudice to state the facts. Yet, people of color always see it that way.

It's not "always" involving people of color but I would say "mostly"
Depends on whether you consider Puerto Ricans to be "people of color" and also, some shootings are committed by Caucasians but rarely so, given that they are in the minority in the VI.

I would hope that any real estate agent I hired "steered" me away from areas I wouldn't want to live in. Isn't that how they earn their commission?

No. There’s a very specific definition of steering in Real estate. Comments like some of those on this thread would be considered illegal if made by a real estate agent.

There are three residential properties for sale in William's Delight right now and two of those are hurricane houses. Why so few in such a densely populated area?

I speculate that families pass homes from one generation to another (making ownership difficult to sort out at times) combined with a strong affordable rental market for undamaged homes in the area post storm. It is obvious William's Delight is a preferred and affordable neighborhood for many.

BTW steering came about because of mid-20th century practices of black families being blocked from living in or owning property in predominantly white areas by unfair and discriminatory governmental and/or business policies. I'm not sure guiding newly relocating families away from areas because of their concerns for personal safety - particularly if those areas have safety concerns that are real and documentable as they are in William's Delight - is discriminatory or considered steering.

"Safe neighborhood" is not a euphemism for "white neighborhood."

I think there are posters on this forum that have similar issues with East End as an undesirable area because old white people live there - and steer newcomers away because of that. Age discrimination for sure. LOL

It's just NONSENSE to say that East just old white people - lots of West Indian and Puerto Ricans live in many neighborhoods east and south east of Christiansted!!! Drive around and you'll see them!

East is desirable for many, for many reasons, just as West is desirable for many, for many reasons.

I live kinda mid-island in Hermon Hill, though some call that East. I LOVE this location as it is convenient to EVERYTHING.

I'm still trying to figure out what crime in the Tampa Bay area has to do with crime in St. Croix. Hillsborough County has 1.4 million people and is 70% white - of course lots of crimes will be committed by white people based on those facts alone. Many crazy people of various ethnicities - originally from all over the US - in Tampa Bay area for sure. Guns, drugs, meth heads, alcohol, angry drivers, trailer parks, crimes yep.

FYI the accused Seminole Heights serial murderer is African American …. not sure what point you're trying to make.

If you're looking for common denominators it seems that anger, guns and drugs rather than race are shared between crimes in Tampa and STX.

Remember...crime comes in all colors...

Everything IS about race and color, and to deny it is dangerous and stupid, especially if you're a person of color.

I'm just pointing out that crime occurs everywhere, although some people act like it is a St. Croix specialty.

I'm much more in danger in Hillsborough County than I ever was on St. Croix. It is not just the obvious "guy with a gun" things, it's all the other things also. I have near-death experiences every day just driving to work.. People here are constantly committing "little crimes" that can kill you.

Try living as a Black person for a few days, then come back to me with your crap about everything not being about race and color.

Jah you always seem like a cool dude so I'm not trying to give you a hard time.

But, at least for me, I don't act like crime is a St. Croix specialty, however I talk about St. Croix crime because that is where I live so of course it concerns me more than crime that occurs elsewhere, where I don't live.

When some dude gets gunned down near Dominoe's early evening when lots of folks are out and about, and when said shooting is retribution, which occurs VERY OFTEN on STX, I get real concerned. Same thing with the poor woman and her 14 year old daughter shot and injured on STT driving the car owned by the dude the shooters were targeting. This revenge crime is bullish*! and needs to stop.

I live in Pinellas and my employer is in north Hillsborough. I have seen just about everything driving in this area for the past 20 years.

You are living in the deep south in parts of the Tampa Bay area with all of its ingrained prejudices and "confederate-proud" ways. Working in law enforcement can force you see the daily repercussions of this I'm sure.

There are some dynamic young African-American leaders emerging that I think are bringing positive energy to race relations in Tampa (PM me I'll give you a name or two if you wish). I have great hope that Andrew Gillum will be elected governor.

Nonetheless, the brutality of the gang-related crime in STX is startling - and it's hard for white people to avoid and/or ignore in such a small, contained land mass.

The shootings in STX would greatly be reduced if the VIPD would do their jobs and not worry about arresting friends and relatives. If they won't bring in some who will. In my opinion it's more won't then can't

I'm not concerned about the inter-gang shootings on STX. Its good to cull the herd.
