Wahsburn St. from East Avenue (Rte. 31) south to High Street is bad. It runs through the worst area in the city. South of High it gets much better for the remaining two blocks before it runs into Locust St. at Willow St.

The north end of Washburn (towards Rt. 31) is not nearly as nice as that of the south.

Well I'd say pretty high, that area is known as the "ghetto" in Lockport. Drugs, name it. Unless you're looking at the other end, it's kind of funny that one end is ghetto and the other end is the richest area in Lockport with mansions. But I think the road actually changes names when it gets to the richer area. I would avoid Washburn, Genesee, South... That whole section is bad news, ESPECIALLY if you have children.
