Just bought a house across from the projects and love our neighborhood and our neighbors. (May be the home you are inquiring about above). We feel safe and while there have been a couple of shootings in the last year, the beautiful piece is how the community comes together to fight against it, demanding that gun violence stop. Other than those two incidents, it is a great area, with great people living normal lives in peace. I don't think we can live in fear and miss out on amazing neighborhoods and fantastic neighbors. My husband, I, and our three little kids wouldn't live anywhere else.
Take a risk and realize what you have been missing out on and the people you have not gotten to know because of fear of the "what if's".
