It's tough to answer that question because what is bad for one person is perfectly acceptable to the next.

It's also hard to look at statistics without having something to compare them to. For instance, if the crime stats you are referring to can be compared to other parts of the county, you will likely see more crime in 31206. But, it may be about the same compared to other parts of the city.

The 06 zip code is probably also the most populous zip code through central Macon. So, you have to look at a rate...a percentage of the population. Just looking at counts could be confusing.

In the past when I've seen crime stats for the whole area, it was near the state averages.

The best thing to do is talk to people on the ground. People who live there. You won't find many of them answering question on Trulia, unfortunately. Mostly agents answer questions here, and we're limited in what we can say about neighborhoods because of rules against steering someone to specific areas. You should also get several opinions, since you'll find a good variance in responses. Some will like it. Some won't. It's best to listen to both sides and pick for yourself. You may also find some specific areas of 06 are better than others.

Best of luck!

If you are referring to Macon, the answer is yes. As with all communities, there will always be some sort of crime. Crime statistics are available through the police department if you want to do further investigating.
