I've heard of a few stories of burglaries that occurred just a block away, but these instances have occurred in homes that are poorly lit, or currently unoccupied because they're being remodeled. I think it's mostly a problem with street lighting.

San Antonio is voted top best in the country for a reason, and my neighborhood is a great representation of why; it's family-friendly with an edge, we're walking/biking distance from the best restaurants, bars, and parks.
