When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Hi Ana,
Real estate agents cannot comment on whether a neighborhood is considered safe. All we can do is make suggestions on where to go for information on crime statistics.

Here are a couple of links to web sites containing crime data for South Jamaica:…

You may also wish to consider contacting the local police department and hear first-hand what the crime activity is in the area.

Best wishes!

Hello Ana. You should choose a neighborhood based on your needs and lifestyle. Realtor's cannot comment on the "desirability" of an area. You should complete your own due diligence. Speak with residents, check local precincts for crime statistics, etc.
