Not the lower east side but another bad area. It's not as bad as the bad areas in say Denver but I do tell new people to not live in that area.

Spruce street is in Bessemer - that's BY FAR the worst neighborhood in Pueblo and it isn't getting any better. I grew up on the East Side and my parents still live in the same house - The East Side has its problems but I would take it over Bessemer in a heartbeat.

It's like a ping pong match between the two. One day you got a shooting in Bessemer. The next day, there's a retaliation shooting on the east side.

It's like changing seats on the Titanic.

Both neighborhoods have shoes dangling from power poles.

Hi everyone, this may have been addressed before but what are the safest neighborhoods for a single retiree to rent in Pueblo?
If you know of any 55 plus communities, I'd be interested in those, also. However, I really like the independence of a duplex or smaller apt. building close to the bus and not too far from town. Thanks a lot.

I would say the southside or Pueblo West.

There is a new neighborhood coming designed for retirees. Not sure how long it will take or how fast you want to move but it could be a option.

The Denver Post is reporting that Pueblo has a booming per capita murder rate - highest in the state.

As in Denver it's mostly in the bad parts of town. Plus our bad parts are not nearly as bad as the bad parts in Denver. I mean if I did not feel safe in Pueblo I would move as my goal is to live forever and no town is with risking my life.

Pueblo got a little write-up in the NY Times.

It's pretty bad when the New York Times - probably the most influential newspaper in the country - is sending someone 2/3rds of the way across the country to write an article about how impoverished the town has become. The cycle of kids having kids has finally caught up Pueblo and it's not getting any better.

A HUGE black eye for Pueblo IMO.

The New York Times should focus on their own backyard not come to Pueblo and only focus on the negative. SMH.



Officials confronting New York City’s surge in heroin trafficking said the past year has brought a troubling trend—a large influx of fentanyl, a synthetic opioid 30 to 50 times more powerful than heroin.
