I'd possibly even include the communities in that I-81 corridor in VA as well.

This list may give you an idea about safety on a metro level, OP: http://os.cqpress.com/citycrime/2013...LowtoHigh).pdf That list also includes urban divisions as well.

Very interesting, thank you.

Any other suggestions out there? This is a great start!
