Hi,

My husband and I are thinking about buying our first house in Black Rock. We love the St. Mary's area and have found a darling house on Prescott Street. From my research, it looks like the area south of Ellsworth is OK, but north - as in Prescott - starts to get shady. Can anyone help us to determine if this street is safe or too close to a less desirable area of Black Rock?

Thank you!
Emily

I lived in Black Rock for about 6 months last year. I would stay West of Ellsworth Avenue (towards Fairfield). St. Mary's by the Sea is lovely. If memory serves the area you are describing is fine.

I usually recommend staying west of Ellsworth in Black Rock. Prescott is kind of on the border of a good area. A few blocks east is a public housing project that has known issues. I think you need to look carefully at the area and decide for yourself. Jay
