In our experience, this has been a very safe neighborhood. Most of the houses are clean and attractive. We are right next to a park/forest with endless trails and places to play. We are very close to grocery stores and only a short drive to most malls and shops. My husband commutes an easy 15-20 minutes to base and we are minutes away from both highways. Although there is no nightlife in this neighborhood, downtown is only a 15 minute drive or a twenty dollar cab ride away. We have a great view of the Chugach Mountains, however we do get terrible winds in the spring and since the main runaway at the airport is being overhauled, most air traffic has been diverted directly over our house. We are currently renting, but the market in this area seems fair for the standard of living we have experienced. As an added bonus, most of our neighbors have been very nice and quiet. We rarely experience noisy neighbors or barking dogs.

I have lived here since I was a 10 year old in elementary school and still currently live here now in college. The area I live in is a very close knit community that is in a rather nice area of town. Although crime in the entire city is getting worse, this area is still staying relatively safe. I would choose to live here again, if the crime in the city doesn't get much worse. Living in a very unique place as Alaska makes it such a different experience than the rest of the country and it's an experience that almost everyone living here cherishes.
The crime in my immediate area isn't bad, but as like the rest of the city, crime is worsening to the point that a lot of people are becoming more concerned. The amount of break ins, homicides, and kidnappings have increased significantly in the past years and months especially. Police are doing a rather well job, I believe they are doing the most and best that they can do given the circumstances.
