I would not live anywhere on Wheeling Island. Either end, all the people still walk. It is infested with prostitutes and drug dealers. A 17 year old kid was shot in the playground on the north end. Also the kids wander aimlessly around the entire island (they apparently are not allowed to cross the suspension bridge to wheeling or they are too lazy to do it). Random people will just make camp on your front stoop and if you do not give them problems about it (and as much as you think you would they look really intimidating) they will also sell their drugs from your front step. Abby's lounge on the North end has been robbed several times. And they have "raids" where they shut the entire island off so no one can leave and they do "warrant sweeps" to arrest people. Several run down bars with no respectable people would even look at let alone attend, only the crack heads and prostitutes would venture in.
