I live in this neighborhood and my family and I feel safe here. We are conveniently located to downtown, parks and Mayo Clinic. There is a great mix of young and old! A really good informational website for Crime and Fire Incident Reports for Rochester, MN and Olmsted County is

This person did not ask to buy a house in a safe neighborhood. They asked if this was a safe neighborhood. It is possible they want to avoid safe neighborhoods.

It's hard to answer a question about safety for someone else. I have a friend that moved here from Detroit and feels that all of MN is a "safe neighborhood", and a friend from a small farming community who doesn't feel safe in a town with more than a dozen people.

Your best bet is to spend a little time in a neighborhood. Visit in the morning and the evening. Visit on a weekday and on a weekend. Before you select a home, talk to the neighbors. If you don't feel comfortable knocking on the neighbors doors before you move in, why would you fell different after?

The new neighbors aren't just a good source of information about the neighborhood, they sometimes have "insider" information about the home you're considering.

Best of luck with your search!
