My wife and I are looking at a home on Woodbine Hill Way in Norcross. How is this area in regards to crime and other things for a young family with a child?

That area safety wise is relatively safe, it isn’t the most desirable place to live. Heavily Mexican, the schools in the area are not that great. Easy access to Gwinnett Place shopping area.

Many people don't know Norcross well.

It is the most bi-polar area on the northeast side of town. Close to I-85 it is heavily Hispanic and many of the apartments are iffy. Once you go west of US 23, it gets pretty nice quickly. Once you cross into Peacthree Corners (still zip coded as Norcross, I think...The whole area use to be considered Unincorporated Norcross. It is a newly established city). It is one of the nicest areas of the county, but expensive. Simpson ES is one of the most expensive parts of the county. The town center are of Norcross, west of US23, is nice.

Interestingly, both areas are in the same high school zone. The schools there are good actually. The catch is you need to examine the differences in the elementary schools and middle schools, because the district boundaries are smaller and what I said above. In the upper grades if your kid is in honors or above or IAB, then they're in a great school. If not, play it by ear and maybe use a private school for 4 years. If you're an established lifelong resident of the area and active with your kids and not transient, that isn't hard to achieve from what I have heard.

I'm not sure I would want to live right off of US23.

We’d be renting at first vs buying. Also the street we are looking at seems to be really nice. We just aren’t in the area to get a good understanding of that specific neighborhood so any help would be appreciated.

On that particular street, Google Maps shows one of the houses as a “casino” with an Asian name on the location. (Asian name as in the whole thing is in Asian characters—not a “name” like Chan or Hmong). Probably not the best thing to have on a street.
