Default how safe is the Ashmont Area of Dorchester?

How are these streets? Range and Barna Rd. I plan to commute from the Ashmont Station. Is it a safe place to live in?

I don't live far from there. Those two streets are in a quiet secluded neighborhood so you shouldn't have any problems. Ashmont Station is just around the corner so you are basically living blocks away from a major transportation link. The only concern you might have is that there is a middle school right up Mercier Avenue and throngs of young people tend to congregate around Ashmont Station around 2:30 in a weekday afternoon but it should be all right if you don't mind living near a middle school. If you commute during rush hour, you will have absolutely no problem because the whole area is flushed with grownups getting to and from work as well.

Absolutely, by all means be careful. And, you should get Urban Peasant to give you a block-by-block breakdown of "safeness". He's very good at that

My wife and I have lived a block behind Ashmont Station for four years and haven't had any problems.
Just be cognizant of the fact that, although it doesn't look like it, you are in the city.
There are excellent dining opportunities here as the owner of Icarus opened two restaurants within spitting distance of the station.

What kind of restaurant is Icarus? Is that the name of the those by the station?
