If you are trying to check out a certain areas you could call the local police station and find out if they have a website to tell you more about the areas in the town. Also you could check on my website I do have a community link where you can check out certain areas.
Hope that helps.
Admittedly, I haven't been down there in about 4 or 5 years, so I can't really comment on the current situation other than to say, as far as I'm concerned, that area is "guilty 'til proven innocent"--in other words, take a very close look at it, knowing it was formerly a VERY bad area. They moved the police station down there (to Spring St) in an attempt to lower the crime rate, and I believe it has worked to some extent.
