My daughter attends pharmacy school there and her last apartment was on Providence Street which is very close to part of Myrtle. There were nothing but college kids from all the schools around, and the house across the street ended up being a druggie house. She is in a different apartment house this year. I would just be very careful. Well worth a drive around during the weekend and at night, not just during business hours/school time M to F.
Might be fine, though.....just depends on specific area and neighbors.
