Your new home is in the 2nd Precinct. Their web address is: and their phone number is
(973) 733-6080. I would give them a call, most officers are very helpful when a concerned parent calls .
Best of luck in your new home,

When asking questions about safety and crime, your best information would be from the police
department. I don't think that any town is completely free of crime. You must take precaution
no matter where you live. I have many investors that are looking in East Orange. They want to
repair/fix up the buildings and rent/resell. Hope that this is of some help to you.

Anna M Brocco answered:
When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Ms. Giles, real estate agents are not permitted to discuss crime activity due to state and federal laws. You can contact the local authorities for specific information.

Crime crawls over all areas of Newark. Your best bet is to check out the area during the day and at night., especially since it's getting warm. You can't live in fear, but if you don't feel safe in the area, its best not to be there.

Hope this helps!

Yes, this neighborhood is safe. This area is redeveloping with new homes, commercial space, retail and more. I would have said 10 years ago that this area was bad. I've lived here for 24 years and seen alot of changes.The government was dumping section 8 and homeless people here. There was a lot of crime. Honestly, police has stepped up and played a major rule in keeping crime to a low. There are always a few bad seeds in a bunch. Anywhere you go in NY their will be areas that seems unsafe. It is really up to you to make sure your safe. Any neighborhood you may live in, speak up about criminal activity go to the local police or contact the community board. Slowly but surely they are cleaning up this area. They're bringing the beach back. I wish I could have bought at Waters Edge, but I already own a property. The prices are great for a redeveloping community. In 2015, you will not even notice Far Rockaway, Arverne or Rockaway beach. You probably won't be able to afford to even live out here. My Family has homes out here and has very high hopes for this area. Sorry to make this answer so long. ... more
