How safe is the neighborhood behind Doyle's and across from English High School? I believe it is part of the Stoney brook association.

A great resource for safety is the local precinct of the police department. Although most precincts have detailed crime statistics, I have found that talking with a local officer is a great way to establish whether or not an area meets with my expectations of safety and/or violent crime. Almost always, crime tends to be very localized, so sometimes very small distances can make big differences in personal safety - at least until the pattern changes.
