No this neighborhood is not safe! Nothing but crime, drugs, vandels, you name it , that's where it is. I lived & grew up in that place, my kids grew up there. It doesn't help that the cop's are crooked too. Maryvale sucks! Maryvale is the south phoenix now. You couldn't pay me to live in maryvale! Gun shot's & the ghetto bird are an everyday thing there. If you move there you better know how to bob & weave.
