It used to be useful. Now neighborhoods all look the same although I know there is a big difference in safety from one to the next. You are now wasting three categories available to show…

I just checked the address on this home on the crime rating site for Vallejo. I lived there several years ago while stationed in the Navy and am planning on moving back. This address is now listed in the orange area, very close to the cut off of the red area. Red area is the highest crime rate for the city of Vallejo. The ratings run green (low-red high) in order green-yellow-orange-red. Just so all are well informed... ... more

I own a home in Glen Cove for rental, and lived there 15 years. The area is affordable and has a lot to offer. Like many others suggest, do your research though, including visits during different hours of the day and night so that you're comfortable. ... more

This area used to be a lot worse. It's cleaned up a bit and over the past 7-10 years. I bought my first home on the 400 block of Wallace Avenue in 2004. We saw / heard more activity because of being so close to Benicia street and there used to be a lot more drug issues in the particular area. Not there anymore. Literally, two months after I bought the house someone was shot and killed on the corner of Starr and Wallace next to the middle school. Other than that there was no other crime the or incident that was a concern for use while we lived there. The shooting was a one off incident and it was likely gang related and outside of their territory. My kids have played soccer for the Pal league and use the field on Wallace there for over 12 years.

It's not the best or greatest of neighborhoods, but it's definitely NOT the CREST! I have no regrets about buying our first home in that area and I would do it again. All our neighbors were great and we all got to know one another and watched out for each other.

You will be fine and hopefully learn to like the community as we have over the years and I am originally from San Rafael, Marin County.

There are many high-voltage power lines through Glen Cove. Have there been any health & environmental studies about the residents living near & around them?

The historical district has beautiful homes and is close to a lot of things like the ferry, interesting shops and is walkable. Yes there is crime, but read the stats before you condemn the older part of town. Petty theft & crimes like taking a car w/o permission (this means family member, not a stranger)...not gang shootouts (try East Oakland, for that). Or if you like spend your life hiding under your blankets. Wherever there is people there is crime and in this age of cars, it can be transported anywhere. Just do your due diligence & you can find safe, interesting neighborhoods & not "ticky-tacky" suburban subdivisions..... ... more
