The question you are asking is a matter of personal preference, only you can decide! I would suggest you do research on the neighborhood, for example you can go on Google and investigate crime rate statistics in the areas you like. Also, try to find people you may know who live in the area and see what they have to say about it. You should also spend some time in the area, check out the commute, shopping and schools if applicable. You may want to visit the area late at night and hang out for a while to see what is happening in the area at that time.
If I can be of further assistance please let me know. Good luck!
