Don't Believe the Hype

Posted on Tue, Sep 20, 2011 at 4:11 PM

I've lived in Highfield Park (A.K.A Crime Field) in Dartmouth for two years. My car has been parked outside in a lot the whole time. No one has even so much as touched my car in that time, not even a scratch from a car door.

Last Saturday while Dj'ing a wedding at the Halifax Club on Hollis Street downtown, my car was parked on the street with a bunch of other cars. Some wonderful person smashed a beer bottle through my windshield. Such a violent, unprovoked act surely must only happen in the north end, or Dartmouth, or especially Highfield Park, but no. It happened right downtown on a busy, well lit street in a higher end part of town. I won't be moving downtown anytime soon. And don't believe the hype, Highfield is not as bad as you think. —D.
