What is Openshaw, Manchester like?

I've seen a house I like in Openshaw (near where all the new build houses are being built just past Lime Square). I love the house but don't really know the area. I've seen that it doesn't seem to have a good reputation but I'm wondering what it's really like. Does anyone live round there and if so, how do you find it?

I'm presuming the waters edge development? The houses look lovely BUT I do have to admit that Openshaw is not a nice place! I think that probably 95% of the people are good people but that other 5% is problematic and loud. The gangs of kids have made people's lives a misery around here. Just check out the manchester evening news. Personally I think Droylsden is a lot better- not far from Openshaw and I've heard there's a new development on the way.

What's your budget? I'm familiar with most of East and South Manchester and without sounding horrible, it's really not a great area. The only thing going for it is the proximity to the city centre.

High deprevation
Not nice resources on your doorstep like nice small reaturants etc
Very very easy into Manchester is only thing going for it.

Droylesden is nicer.
