There are still enclaves that are pretty nice...Northern Ave. between 15th and 7th Aves., ummmm....well, that pretty much covers it. Unless you head out to the suburbs, say, Bell Rd. and 183rd Avenue, or Apache Junction, or Goodyear, or Ahwatukee.
My folks have live at 63rd Ave. and Thomas for over 30 years. At one time that was a nice area, but it's gang-land heaven right now.

(Go with Courage, go with Honor, go in God's Grace. Come home when the job's done. We'll be here.)
For a while I lived right in the heart of Phoenix then got an apartment off of Indian School Road outside of Scottsdale. It's Tempe I heard that has really gone down hill, if true that's a shame because what's happening is totally preventable.
My neighborhood went Hispanic about three years ago. A couple years ago a punk who lives nextdoor said,"whatch your back whitey we outnumber you now".
That weekend I invited some of my Harley buddies over and we did burnouts in the driveway,which is right by their house. We finally quit about one in the morning. Now my neighbors just smile and wave when they see me.
