Quite a few people say it's not a good area to live in but I haven't encountered any incidents of crime since I moved there. I go out late at nights, walking by myself and no one has ever approached me in a disrespectful or suspicious way. I think it's fairly safe.

That part of town is fairly dull. All the stores close as early as 8 pm and there aren't many attractions or activities to participate in unless you want to go all the way downtown, which is an incovenience
Only one bus line runs by my apartment complex. That bus runs fairly frequently during peak hours but afterwards it comes every half an hour to an hour. And sometimes it's late and on a few occasions the buses just don't show up.
