As my colleagues have suggested, "safe" is subjective. This is a very important issue, and I advise doing research to make sure you are knowledgeable and familiar with the neighborhood you are interested in. For some people, car break-ins means the neighborhood isn't safe.
I always suggest looking at the crime stats in a neighborhood, but along with that, go to a NCPC or block club meeting and talk to the local cops and neighbors there. Call the local City Council District office and you can get a lot of info about the neighborhood. Most if not all of Mosswood is in District One, Jane Brunner's District. You can get crime info, neighborhood meeting info and Council District info from the City of Oakland website: http://www.oaklandnet.com If possible, go spend time in the neighborhood and talk to people. Neighbors are usually very glad to tell you the good and bad aspects of their own neighborhood. Good luck.
