Not a safe neighborhood. I work in the area and thus am fully aware of Jay street. High poverty, high crime and many boarded up houses. There are some new homes being built by Habitat for Humanities.

well thanks.........ive been looking in the rochester area, but the many comments about crime in the city dont exactly make it as appealing as the prices do. there are some beautiful old houses for sale that are affordable . id like to have one of those 1900"s addams family looking houses, lol, but i dont after living somewhere you can leave everything unlocked or wide open 24/7, want to have to get a pit bull to keep from getting robbed. ive been all over, most larger cities have such problems, all over the world. so i am still looking there, but i have started looking other places also.

but even with the housing problems at home.........the prices have dropped, but i dont see how the average family makes it.............200,000, 300,000, 400,000 nothing special suburban houses........the prices are so out of wack its unbelievable..........a tract home for 1/4 of a million dollars................... are people really making that much money??? sure doesnt seem so. im glad im not just graduating college looking at home prices, its obscene.

the cheap foreclosures wont last forever, then we are back to where we were......no affordable housing......its sad.

its better than the 19th ward, but worse than a suburb

The best source for neighborhood safety issues is the local police department or county sheriff's department.
They have access to the most accurate and current information and are generally very willing to be helpful.
