Do you feel safe in your neighborhood?

I do. I live on the Westside and feel totally safe. It’s pitch black outside of my house and I’ve never felt unsafe there. In the beach area it can feel a little sketchy, but not around my house.

lt_katyNinety percent of the time I feel safe in my neighborhood. It’s mostly safe even with a little riff raff on the corner and by the trestle bridge when you cross it at night, but besides that I feel good.

lt_ronNinety percent of the time. Ten percent of the time when I see the cops racing around the block it’s a little disconcerting. It’s Seabright, a nice area, but there is crime.

I live on 7th Avenue, two blocks from the beach, and I do feel safe. The streets are a little fast paced, but I’m not scared to live there.
