    Compared to the rest of West Yorkshire it's a dive.

    Nonsense, it's just like any other city. Some pleasant places, some not

    Except most of it's not that nice really is it?

    Everywhere I've lived there is nice. If all my friends moved with me, I'd move back there.

    Glad I don't live there. I remember it being okay before all the glass buildings and hipster fucks destroyed the place. The rest of WY is so much better, and yes, I'm including Batley.

    i've long thought the station the nicest part of leeds. which is a pity as the centre would have been nicer if it wasn't just another load of high streets with shops barely without exception you can find in any other large town or city in the uk.

    Are you from Harehills? I was born and bred there but you have to admit it's a dump now. I still love it though

    I feel safe walking through anywhere in Leeds at night but the high risk areas are Gipton/Beeston and Lincoln green near the estates

    I'v Been out of Leeds for 37 years but still come back to visit family in fact last week being the last time. Your talk of dodgy areas quite a few I lived / stayed in back in the 70's are no better or worse than deprived areas in any great city in the EU. The level of acceptable violence & crime over the years has of course got worse but I wonder what it will get like once the competition for housing, school places, NHS places reaches bursting point. For with the increased levels of immigration legal or other wise these are the areas that will be put under an intollerable strain.

    Yeah but juxtaposed against, say, Middlesbrough, it's fucking brilliant. It's easy to tut from that London. Good cunt magnet this thread anyway (don't mean you pickman's)

    Firstly the "level of acceptable violence and crime" has markedly decreased over the past 20 years by any measure you care to look at. I moved to leeds in the early 90s - burglary levels and car crime in places like hyde park were insane and violence was far more commonplace - especially in the city centre on weekend evenings. Certain areas definitely did NOT feel safe to walk around at night. There several riots in the 90s as well. Its is a far far safer city nowadays.

    And you can fuck off with your immigration shroud waving bollocks as well.

    Every bit of Leeds has its good and bad bits. Like most big cities there are massive changes every half mile or so but no area is entirely crap. I currently live in Meanwood which has the nicest park in the city (Leeds is one d the greenest cities zone Europe) but every area has its charms.

    Morley - Dunno if I mentioned it up-thread but my mate Chris is mixed race and his wife is a bit Mediterranean- looking. They bought a house there and stuck it out for a year before they moved back to Harehills. Really felt a strong racist vibe.

    It probably depends on which bit of Morley.

    Morley is one of the less diverse areas. It returned a BNP councillor in the recent past - so yeah you're more likely to get racist grief there then other areas.

    That’s a very diplomatic way of putting it. I’ve been struggling to think of good things about Morley but can only come up with the splendid Yorkshire Vetinerary Hospital and a good Club night (Orbit - I think it was) in the late 80s. Unfortunately ime it always seems to pop up in the same sentence as incidents of violence (racist and otherwise). Mrs SFM’s workmate’s boyfriend (Chinese ancestry but from Chapeltown) got his jaw, arm and leg broken in an unprovoked attack outside a Morley chip shop. My mate, who lives there, has neighbours who don’t try to hide their EDL/BNP sympathies and put dogshit through his letterbox. I could go on but it’s probably fair to say it has much more of small-town vibe than its big city neighbour.
