Overall, the are is alright. Aside from the sexual assaults and robbery, I personally enjoy the vicinity of the bay area and all the great opportunities. I never had to deal with such confrontation luckily.

It's an ok place to live. Sometimes it feel like we can have a better apartment but now a days it is getting too expensive to move out. Our apartment room is old all thought the apartment building looks new cause of the renovations. The management seems to care less about the old tenants because we pay less money than the new tenants. The neighbor hood is quiet and not very dangerous.
My neighborhood is pretty quiet. I haven't ever heard a gun shot go off. But there was a time when come one got robbed right outside my apartment at night. I hear a scream forming from the victim and next thing I know I saw the cops coming. I have been living in my apartment with my family for about 9 years and that is the only incident that ever happened.
