I'd call it modestly marginal. Some people give the Quapaw Quarter decent marks but most everyone agrees it can be a bit dodgy south of 630. Judging from Yahoo maps that section of 14th has been renamed Daisy Bates Dr. It's a part of town that needs some TLC and it could become very cool.

If you get past Cumberland and Capitol you're getting dicey, and it's dicey in some areas north of Capitol. There's only a really, really small area of Quapaw that is great, and it is single family homes.

I'd keep looking.

WAIT...that's the new Eastside Lofts? Well.....I'd still be looking, but that's just me...

There are parts of the Quapaw Quarter where I would feel safe, particularly the area around the Governor's Mansion. The area you're referring to has the Villa Marre and Eastside Lofts but a lot of transients and a fair number of abandoned buildings. It's clearly in a period of gentrification as abandoned buildings are being rapidly remodeled into apartments and homes but I would think it won't be considered a safe area of town for at least a decade.

Now, there are nice options across I-630 in the MacArthur Park area and that's even closer to the downtown core.

thanks everyone for your responses. It looks like they're trying to build the area back up. The houses surrounding EastSide Lofts(immediately surrounding) are beautiful and they've built some new ones. But, thanks again! I've gotten a lot of mixed reviews about the area.
