Just curious. I found a nice place that's at a decent price. I have a car.

Definitely borderline sketchy. You would need to drive down there at night and see if you are comfortable. I would not be. Try to imagine yourself in a scene from Grand Theft Auto. Not good.

5 or so years from now that may be a different story with the gentrification, but for now, it's very much on the line between "up and coming" and "ghetto".

LOL! Exactly, this is what I was trying to say on another thread about the safety at night in downtown ~

As others said, it is a sketchy area. But if your considering downtown than look at Wagener terrace. It's a much safer area, without being too expensive. A central location for that neighborhood would be the corner of Rutledge and San Souci.

Just talking about that area; not the whole of downtown. Generally downtown is very safe.

You will be fine at Ashely and Line. 3 years ago would have been a different story. Downtown has small pockets now that you need to stay away from. Take president and line for example and you have the back to green projects (stay away). America street, south,drake, blake, cooper, that whole area is still pretty ruff but slowly starting to make a turn for the better. The area that you are talking about if you are driving up spring st, you have percy, rose, sires, rutledge, and ashley that run off spring toward the crosstown. This area was a hot spot for the arsonist that hit that area hard for years along with shootings and stabbings. Now you may have an assault or car break in every so often so at the end of the day just use your common sense at night. If you are talking about buying a place in this neighborhood definitely pick it up if the price is right.
