Default Is the Peoplestown neighborhood safe?

I'm interested in an apartment in Peoplestown, since it's so close to Georgia State University. Twenty-year old, single, petite female that is about as fierce as vanilla pudding. Would you consider this an 'okay' neighborhood to move to?

Check the APD's crime map in the vicinity of this apartment.

IMHO, I would NOT recommend Peoplestown for you.

I don't live in Peoplestown, so I can't speak for a resident of the neighborhood. Now that I've stated my position, I can tell my story. About four years ago, my husband and I were house hunting, prior to when the bottom really dropped out. We couldn't afford the intown neighborhoods we really wanted, so our realtor suggested we look in Peoplestown. We looked and then we left and we couldn't believe she took us there. It's pretty sketchy, IMHO, and this is coming from someone who lives in Historic West End, a neighborhood that has a bad rap but isn't really that bad. The beautiful new D.L. Stanton park in Peoplestown has sadly been vandalized multiple times in the two months it has been open; I was there the other day to play in the splash pad with my kids and someone from the city's parks department was there - I went up to talk to him and he detailed all of the things that had been broken and graffiti'ed up and basically said "You can't put stuff like this in certain neighborhoods." It's really, really sad. In a nutshell, I'd be weary.
