Yes and no. Safe and lots of drugs. The locals (the people without money - look at the poverty rate) are either drunks or drug users. As a contractor my biggest issue is finding help that will show up after they get paid. Lots of meth/ICE/opiate use among the younger people while the older "bay rats" prefer drinking 18 beers a day. Just from my experience, I wouldn't move kids or anyone who can't resist temptation here. (As one 28 year old woman from Ft Worth who developed a meth/heroin habit here told me "I thought Ft Worth was bad but they people are really f'ed up. I gotta get out of here."). I'm not selling anything, just my experience...stay away from the locals. BTW, don't leave your garage open...meth heads wander the streets looking for things to pawn.
On the good side...heavy police presence and little violent crime, just drugies and boozers acting like idiots.
