Hi Everyone,

I am looking to buy a house in this area. Do you have any comment on this area in term of safety issue?
We are mid 30's and have two kids.

Thanks,
A.

School ratings and reviews often give you a clue of what a neighborhood is like.

Thank you, Eok. We just came by that area and found out that it's not the area for us even though the house price is relative cheap.

Now, I am looking at Hikes Point and Klondike Area of 40220. Does anyone have comment on them?

That area is known as Hikes Point and that area is fair. The north side of 264 ( inner beltway) would be even better but don't know if that still would be 40220 zip code.

Living at Hikes Point, you could do a lot of short-distance walking. If you like to walk. You could do your grocery shopping at Kroger, and also shop at other stores in the same plaza, or one of the other nearby plazas. There are a lot of fast food places in short walking distance, such as Taco Bell, McDonalds, Arbys, and a lot of others. There is also a Golden Corral in short walking distance, and various other types of restaurants.

And there's lots of stuff in short driving distance. Such as Aldi, 2 Walmart Supercenters, Costco, Lowes, Home Depot, Meijer's, and a lot of other such places. All of those are within about 3 miles of Hikes Point.

There seem to be lots of buses at Hikes Point, going in various directions.

A Kmart closed recently, as part of an ongoing effort to drastically reduce the number of Sears and Kmart stores in the USA. There's no telling what's going to take its place. There seem to be a lot of pharmacies everywhere you look, but they don't necessarily have good prescription prices. Kroger Pharmacy seems to beat all of them if your health insurance doesn't cover prescriptions. But Costco, about 3 miles away, seems to beat Kroger.

Thank you for your helpful information.
I drove across this area couple times but I can't figure out how safe it is. Do you have any comments on safety? I would avoid area with guys who is just walking around houses or restaurants for no reason. I would prefer 40220 area. My budget for house is 150k or less. 3 beds and 1+ bath.

I don't know how much crime there is. I haven't actually seen any. I've walked all over the Hikes Point area a number of times, and have never met anyone who seemed sinister to me. I would say the single biggest danger there is getting run over by a drunk driver. Lots of people jaywalk but it's really not a very safe thing to do there. Nobody ever seems to get any jaywalking tickets, but it seems obvious someone is going to get killed doing it.
