I am living in one of nicer areas of the general area. I love my apartment complex. We had some break ins when I had first moved in. Management put security in place which controlled the issued. I can walk to stores, the school is close, and my fiance job is close as well.

It's fine, I wouldn't want to raise children here.
I have not witnessed any crime since I have been here. If cops come around it is typically for noise complaints.
