I'm considering buying a house in the Morris Park neighborhood and I'm looking for some input on the area. About myself....28/M/Single/white collar profession.

Would I feel safe walking around the neighborhood by myself at night?

Are there young single professionals that own homes in the neighborhood without families?

Do people take care of their homes and yards or do some houses look vacant when they're actually not?

I really like Morris Park. It's close to the airport & Highway 62 so those are drawbacks, but one's I can live with. It's also close to the light rail (54th St & VA stations), Minnehaha Falls & Lake Nokomis, all positives. There are some decent restaurants & bars in the Town Hall Lanes, Al Vento, Nokomis Coffer Shop, Fat Lorenzo's, Nokomis Cafe, Buster's, Northbound Brewery & the Cardinal Tavern, but they're all a bike ride or short light rail ride away. The homes tend to be small, post WW2 builds that you see in 1st ring suburbs, many being 2 bedrooms. Probably a good fit for your situation. People do take care of their yards & it's mostly walkable at night. Just West of 34th Ave though, along Highway 62 (56th-57th st?) you have Bossen Terrace, Bossen Apartments & Bossen Park. You will want to steer clear of these areas after dark. From time to time they venture East into Morris Park, but mostly it's a nice, safe place. A place I would live personally if I didn't need such a big house.

Mason3000 is right on the money. My daughter and her boyfriend (20 somethings-no kids) just bought a house there this past May. They also have a single housemate. They really like the area. It is a working class neighborhood,yards and houses kept up, and they love the proximity to the light rail.
