is it safe to live there?

Help the community by answering this question:


Yes, it is safe there. I used to live a block away on either side of Giles Avenue (5 years on Calumet Avenue and 10 years on Prairie Avenue). Giles is extremely safe in general, but as well with two police stations within a short distance away. A criminal would be a fool to bother anyone around here!

As indicated, we cant comment on things of this nature.

I would go there at different times of the day and night. Only you can answer this question for yourself.

All agents should and will respond the same way here: by law, we cannot comment on the safety of neighborhoods. You should research the area thoroughly, check out crime stats online, visit, and drive around the neighborhood day and night if you can. We can then help you to learn about the real estate market there!

Ask your friends/family or coworkers. Agents cannot answer this and just refer you to check local police crime statistics.

Where do you want to live?

Do your due diligence on the neighborhodd and visit it at different times of the day to see how you feel about the local activity. Also vist the local police station and request info.
