"Home is where the heart is."
There are several police precients in the area, the metro station has a police station on site and there's a station on Frederick Douglas at 147th.
If you're concerned, I might walk down to that street and then take a cross street to Bradhurst, but overall, I've felt safe and secure in this neighborhood.
Welcome to the neighborhood!
While I understand that everyone wants to feel safe, it's really not a correct statement for anyone to say an area is safe or not safe. We've all heard of terrible things happening in what were perceived to be "safe" areas.
Let common sense prevail wherever you choose to live or travel. If alone , walk in public areas while talking (or pretending to talk) with someone. Try to stay in well-lit public places. Talk to your local police for better tips.
Wishing everyone a safe and happy new year!
Valid question. The best answer I can give you, and the legal one I am obliged to give you, is check with the local precinct on crime statistics. They have that information. See how it compares to other neighborhoods you may be considering.
Hope that helps.
