Although the city of Hartford, CT overall does not have the best reputation, I've had nothing but pleasant experiences in my neighborhood & the surrounding areas I've ventured into.

Compared to other places, I would say that this area is okay. There are definitely better and safer areas to live. In the future, I see this place staying the same. Meaning that in it will not increase nor deteriorate..but will just stay the same. I hope that crime does not increase and it stays as quiet as it is now
I love this quiet neighborhood nestled in the city life. Family friendly and despite the reputation of Hartford I feel safe in this side of town.
