My concern for the my kids safety is the same as if we are walking downtown, Linclon Park or other areas. I am sure that my concerns will change as they get older but, overall it is okay. Take Deb Russcol comments and advice below, check out her links and that will give you a picture.
I like the area with a great mixture of cultures and venues minutes away and the park is an asset like few in the city. Good luck in your search.
You most likely won't, or "shouldn't", get an answer on this from a licensed real estate agent. Although it's a VERY, understandably, common question - answering this could be construed as "steering" clients. It's illegal for licensed agents to "steer" you to other neighborhoods by suggesting that certain areas are unsafe, of a specific ethinic makeup, etc. My suggestion - search for crime statistics online, check with the local police, or ask around to neighbors and residents in the area. Hope this helps!
