The east side of Saint Paul has wonderful aspects to it, such as the great diversity of ethnicities, cultures, and people, but there are also downfalls, such as poor road conditions, poor building structures, and how dirty some streets and neighborhoods are. In terms of safeness, no one place is really "safe", but the Greater East Side would be considered one of the more shabby and unsafe neighborhoods of Saint Paul. You would not necessarily feel safe allowing your family members to freely roam the streets at night, or even during the day, alone. The schools have travelled off their courses and are heading towards failure for the teachers and the students. The standards being taught in school can be greatly improved, along with what is taught in schools.

Very quiet, friendly, and respect neighborhood. It's nice for families because it's far enough back, but go a couple blocks up, and you're in the city!
Many of the folks that stay in the area grew up here and since all the changes for good, it makes it hard to move from such a great area. People are very nice and willing to help others in need!
