The immediate area in The Crossings is very nice and convenient location with all the shopping stores like Safeway, the San Antonio Center and the 24 Hour Fitness Super Sport. The best judge on a neighborhoood is good is actually you. You can talk with people that live in the area or you can spend time in the area to jugde for yourself. I think that the crime rate in general, in Mountain View is pretty low. However, the best people to ask would be the police department, feel free to call them and get the data from them. They are very helpful and friendly.
