What's the area of Staten Island near Victory and Willowbrook Park? Is it a safe area? From Trulia, it seems very close to high crimes rate area.

I have lived next to Willowbrook Park for two years and have never had an issue. The "high crime" areas are about a 10 minute drive so there is nothing to worry about. I have walked home from the express bus at late hours with no issues.

Great centrally located area. You can drive around the surrounding areas or check crimes with the police department. Very convenient to expressway, shopping ,and lots of express busses to Manhattan run there

Here is the thing. I myself leave very close to this area. Actually, it's quite a few areas associated with the Willowbrook Park: Bulls Head, New Springville,Westerleigh and Willowbrook. Great park, Good schools, some very good restaurants, amazing convinience when it comes to a major shopping and major roads proximity. I like Trulia, but they are not my neighbors. Regarding the crime area? Nothing of extraordinary, just NewYork!

Hello Ringny, that area is known as Bulls Head. The area is protected by the New York City's 122nd Police Precinct, and is not known as a high crime area which can be seen in the latest, and most up to date official statistics; http://www.nyc.gov/html/nypd/downloads/pdf/crime_statistics/…

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/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
