Keep in mind that opinions are oftentimes subjective, whay may be good for one is not necessarily the case for another. Choosing an area is really a matter of personal preferences, wants, needs, lifestyle, etc. Therefore consider revisiting and possibly chat with locals/neighbors; if you are concerned about restaurants, ask your server/employees questions, etc.; then determine if your comfort level can be reached. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
