Parts of LA, like South Central, East LA, Parts of South LA and parts of North Hollywood all pretty much suck from what I remember (which was back in the 2006 time period). You stay out of those areas and pretty much avoid crime. West LA and the ritzy areas have little violent crime and a lot less property crime. I have no idea what LA is made of when people analyze crime statistics. Now, downtown LA scared the crap out of me when I would go there for concerts at the Orpheum. But you go to places like the Wiltern and it's totally safe.

As for NYC, I spent the summer of 2006 there. I have never felt so safe in my life, aside from my summer in England. Again, the crime in certain boroughs drives up the crime statistics for the entire city. The same problem happens with DC, where I currently live.

What I'm wondering is how safe is the area by the World of Coke (I'm looking at the Gables property down on Auburn) to live in for a single, 25 year old white girl? I have a dog that I will be walking at night.

The reason I described my experiences with those other cities is that Atlanta seems to be much smaller in population and/or land mass than LA or NYC, so it's difficult to make generalizations, even looking at crime statistics. You have to look at crime maps of the specific areas you're interested in moving to.

That all being said, what is an honest take on that area of ATL that I mentioned above?
That area is really fine.You are still in a city so exercise caution ,but that area is really not bad at all
