I'm not too far from the Horton Hills area, and have always felt safe around there. I'm not that familar with Greyson's Green, but I don't think that area is as desirable.

Maybe this link can help.
It is a searchable crime map for Durham.
You can view on a map certain crimes & addresses or search all crimes for the city

I would not go to this mall at night. Policy cars park there all the time...... Even in the day time, I don't feel comfortable at the covered parking lot....

I don't know anything about most of those places, but my husband and I are currently in the market to buy a new home. We looked briefly in Twin Lakes. The neighborhood appeared nice online, but traveling through it, it looked pretty run down and rough. I don't know how crime is, but I didn't like the look of the neighborhood overall.

Are you talking about the area between Horton and Holt? Although it isn't the nicest area and not where I would choose to live, it has typical crime of living in a city. If you look at the Durham crime map it is mostly larceny.

The police cars park there all the time because there is a police substation in the mall.

They're there because that's where they work out of.
