I"ve needed to travel to or through different parts on a half dozen occasions, and my subjective opinion is that overall, I would not want my wife or kids to walk there alone, day or night. I have also checked crime stats for Bayview, and they seemed to support my subjective sense. Sad to say, because undoubtedly most of the people there are wonderful folks. But the bad seeds seem to cause more trouble than I care to risk encountering by going there very often. Only my perception and opinion (I'm an ethnic minority, if that matters to understanding my viewpoint). Like others said, in the future, it may improve and be a good investment from that standpoint. Best of luck, rob.
