Thanks, now I see what you're saying after taking another look at the map!!

Safety and pristine are relative to the person. Grant Park is beautiful neighborhood and I personally know several single females living in Kirkwood who are active in the neighborhood and are seen walking around, etc.

I will add, I was out on my bike yesterday and 80% of the dozen or so people I saw walking were single females (well, they were by themselves. I have no idea what their relationship status is). So clearly there are plenty that feel safe enough in this part of town.

Okay, one more question: Am I clear (from what I see on a map) That part of Grant Park and the East Side are BELOW I20?? Cuz it sure does look like it. I'm just trying to figure out if I can't find anything in Grant Park, what would be the limit on how far south to go if i were to find something.

Yes, almost all of Grant Park is below I-20. All of my neighborhood is south of I-20.

The limit is go walk around the area and see if it is somewhere you feel comfortable living.

So many people said to me when I first moved here "DON'T LIVE SOUTH OF 20." Ridiculous. I love living south of 20. There is a lot of amazing things going on south of 20, so don't let people deceive you otherwise. What is safe/isn't safe is different for everyone (which I'm sure other posters have already stated). Be smart, that's what important.

Thanks for this. I keep seeing properties below Grant Park closer to "Peoplestown" that are more budget friendly. Are you familiar??

I am not too familiar with Peoplestown, but I believe it's right around Turner Field. Someone else may be able to offer some insight, but I've been told the area around Turner Field is sketchy. Who knows.

In my limited experience, everything east of Boulevard seems to be the "nicer" areas, but I'd love to be corrected by another poster. I'm still feeling everything out down here myself.

I'm not an expert on the area, but there are a lot of fancy areas in Grant Park west of Boulevard (the majority of the neighborhood's west of Boulevard, right?). I think the area around the soon-to-be-former baseball stadium is a good investment, but is probably pretty rough right now.

Thanks bryanalan and Dkeating. I just read that Peoplestown is gearing toward improved, but low-income housing as part of their gentrification efforts. Don't know what that will mean in the long run for safety or resale value.
