Several areas in North Linden is bad. Sorry to be vague, but it really depends on the street, not just the district. It's very important to look at the "crime" details posted on here and like you already did, ask questions. I also have a daughter and we need a safe area to live. I'm also figuring out that just because the houses and area looks nice...it does not mean it's safe. Please carefully do your research. Good luck!
