Is this area safe or dangerous? What types of crimes are committed? Are there any intersections or streets that should be avoided?

I currently live in the Dogpatch and I love it here. That said... it's not the safest area because of the large low-income housing projects near by. There has been a lot of crime a few blocks away from this address, though most people say that 3rd street is fairly safe...

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.

Why don't you contact local police departments. Realtors and other professionals must be very careful as Fairhousing laws are quite strict. Safe or dangerous might have different meanings to you than others as well, so do keep that in mind.
