Something you should know - if you call the Pasadena Community Services Section of the Police Department, they are very happy to share crime info in any particular neighborhood. I say, when looking for good data - go to the source!

I sold all the townhomes at Fair Oaks Summit at 1701 Fair Oaks, so I know the area well. I specialize in Pasadena and Altadena.
What is your price range? There's plenty of properties in good neighborhoods in NW Pasadena.

Your best bet on finding out about crime activity in the area would be to go directly to the source, to the Pasadena Police Department. Here is a link to their website: http://cityofpasadena.net/Police/
Here is an interesting site showing crime statistics as well: http://spotcrime.com/ca/pasadena
Hope this info is helpful. Email me if you have any questions or if I can be of any assistance.
Have a nice evening!
