Stay to the north and east.

I lived east of Browning Parkway and north of 64/Bloomfield Highway in a newer subdivision. Never had any problems, but that's as far west as I would go, personally.

See, on the western half of Farmington lies the Navajo Reservation. They, like most other Native American tribes, unfortunately suffer high rates of homicide, suicide, violence and depression. Like everyone else said, crime is significantly higher the closer you get to the rez, but by no means is it a utopia elsewhere.

Where do you like to live in the mountains in the summer?
And can you recommend any places to live in winter near the border?
