It is unsafe, but most neighborhoods are. However my neighbor's garage did get pilfered. My family is very vigilant and are careful about who we invite in so we don't have any problems, but the area does have a risky aura about it. You get the sense you shouldn't be out walking alone, but i'd be more afraid of loose dogs than any other danger. The police are very responsive however, and we even have a security car that drives around to check any suspicious activity.
