Crime & Safety in Roselle>Question Details

Jspellen, Home Buyer in

Can someone give me some feedback on this location? Safe, dangerous, and "don't think about it". 241 West 3rd Avenue, Roselle NJ 07203?

Asked by Jspellen, Wed Feb 15, 2012

There are a lot of homes on 8th ave, 3rd Ave. Should I stay away from this area? What about the East side or West Side? Any information will be great.

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Hi, I don't know if your still looking for info on Roselle but I'll reply anyway.
I've lived in Roselle over 10 years and for the most part I like it.
W. 3rd Ave is a decent area in Roselle and it's close to many stores, and the Post Office and public transportation. The main problem with Roselle is the high taxes. I think that's why so many houses are for sale in Roselle.
In my opinion the worst areas in Roselle are E. 10th Ave, E. 9th Ave, and E 11th Ave by St George Ave. There's lots of illegal activity in that area, shootings, drug dealers and gangs.
Good luck looking for a home. There are many beautiful houses in Roselle.
