I feel very safe in the neighborhood. I have not witnessed or heard of much crime. My neighbors all look out for each other and if something suspicious is occurring, the neighbors on the block make their presence known.
Lots of great bars and restaurants in the area. Some good local retail, but a little pricey. Everything is within walking distance except a good market/grocery store.
