I am aware of somewhat frequent bike thefts, however considering the proximity to a university, crime seems lower than I would expect.

It's a nice atmosphere, but the stress of quickly increasing rent and difficult to find housing makes moving to or within Denver stressful.
Being right near a college, this area was very well kept, but going three blocks in any direction, you found a very different story.
