Checking with the St Augustine Police is one way to measure your own comfort level as well as talking to people who live in places that might be of interest to you.
Over the last 5 years, I have managed a few rentals in lincolnville. Mostly to college age tenants, both male and female. They would walk to and from class, work, and the nightlife. No incidents to report. There is a lot of new construction and renovation activity in Lincolnville, very exciting!!
Feel free to call if you have more questions. 904-219-9818
I always tell people that if they would like to know about the crime rate in ST Augustine, they should check with the St Augustine police department
