There is no way to "debunk" a stat. The area is dangerous period. I have also been there many times and crime does happen right before your very eyes. Daylight or not.

I don't think I disagree with you... in fact my previous post said some very positive things about North O... I mentioned beutiful old homes and some wonderful people... my point was its one thing for someone who understands the area (positive and negative) to choose to live there, its another to send someone from outside into the area without knowing the risks.

Its one thing for a long time resident to understand that and still choose to be part of that area, but its something totally different for a newcomer to venture in.

I wouldn't recommend it unless you know very specifically what you are walking into.

The areas that are bad are very concentrated. 24th and Ames has the crime because it has 2 night clubs right on the corner. Its bad. Thankfully one of them burned to the ground on New Years. Now there is just one left standing. 30th and Ames has two late night gas stations and a liquor store on the corner that always seem to have trouble. The people who cause problems there are the dumbest criminals in the world fyi. There is a police station directly behind one of the gas stations. I'll just say I wouldn't want to live directly on Ames between 24th and 40th... or directly on 24th within 2 blocks of Ames. The rest of the neighborhoods around that area nice, quiet, and full of character. If you live north-east enough in North Omaha you are playing it even safer. I'd say anything along Florence Blvd north of Sorenson Pkwy is fantastic. If you've ever walked the Corporate Cup or ran in the Omaha Marathon you'd know what I mean. Its very interesting how small the line is that separates some of good and bad parts of North O. An example, 16th and Maple = scary. 2 blocks over at 17th and Wirt = some of the most beautiful homes I've seen in Omaha.
