Street gangs not sure.

Oceanfront area can go either way. A lot of tourists in that area. People live there, but it isn't really a neighborhood in the typical sense. A lot of the properties down there people own and they're renting it out, but they might not be there full time. The Ocean View area is the same way.

The area is 25% lower than the national average and 55% lower than other cities in the US.

If you must live on the Oceanfront, try Atlantic Ave, Creeds/Blackwater, Sandbrige, or South Birdneck Rd.

Virginia Beach is like a suburb and a city, and in some neighborhoods it is both at the same time. Some of your safest neighborhoods, are going to be those "suburban" neighborhoods. Other "urban" neighborhoods that attract people from other areas, like the Oceanfront, or Town Center, Pembroke, etc not so much, although the crime will be discreet and not out in the open, like it might be in other neighborhoods in other cities. There isn't an open air anything in Virginia Beach. It is what it is.

The Citi-Data crime indicator shows that the crime rate in VB is very low.... by some measures the lowest of any "big" city in the US. We are originally a suburb, so if you include the other Southside cities we aren't as good. Still much better than most large metros.
