I am not familiar with the area at all. Is South Jarvis Avenue a safe area for 3 ECU ladies to rent a house? Thanks!

I would say so. Jarvis St is close to ECU which is patrolled by Greenville PD and Campus police. Used to hang out there in my college days and never had any problems.

But they should know there's a lot of house parties in that neighborhood on the weekends and if they don't want to be around that, it might be wise to look elsewhere.

Jarvis Street, and that whole area, for the most part is OK. Christy's Euro Pub and that other stuff is there, which brings in people. Don't walk by yourself at night, or other dumb stuff like that, and you should be OK.

But like with living anywhere, if you make it easy for criminals to take advantage, they will.

Not to be hyper-critical Mr. Bogangles, but walking by yourself isn't dumb. It's certainly not safe but that's because Greenville is not safe. Not being from here I just don't think it's fair to assume that doing things like never walking alone at night or going downtown a night are dumb because they're not safe. Not trying to unload but Greenville sucks and it's stupid that people have to constantly be worried for their safety. That in itself is dumb. The fact that we classify areas of town as "safe", as long as you're not "dumb" shows that the area is not that safe. Once again I'm not trying to unload on you just pointing out, what to me is obvious... Greenville as a whole is not that safe.

I don't know the area, but if you cannot walk alone, it is not safe.

In new Bern when we got to 10 murders (counting a body rotting in a van) within 1000 yards, I stopped counting but folks walk here, by themselves all the time, males, females. Well after dark.

Hence the term: "Having street smarts"

OP: If you're walking from downtown to Jarvis at night, walk with as many as people possible. Don't walk alone, tipsy (or flat-out bombed), on the phone, stumbling on your heels. With all the trees and fences, the neighborhood adjacent to downtown gets dark quick once you get past the ECU parking lots. Walk in a group, shortest and best-lit route, carry pepper spray. It's a decent neighborhood, but always keep your doors and windows closed and locked when sleeping or not home. Break-ins are actually more of a daytime thing - and that's everywhere, not just Greenville.

Thank you for all the responses. Really not comfortable having my child move off campus after reading this! But, that would be anywhere, not just Greenville I suppose.

Issue is that near bad stuff doesn't mean you are not ok in your location.

That's everywhere...not just Greenville.

Sorry that got past you.
