By the way, everyone has a different concept of what's a "good" area, but in case you're asking specifically about crime, I highly recommend becoming acquainted with Crime Mapping - Welcome! . DeKalb County police data (but not City of Decatur) is fed into the service so you can see maps showing criminal activity throughout the county. It's usually a bit jarring initially (because you see giant icons for each crime so it generally looks scarier than it is -- like those maps showing all the commercial flights in the air) but in my area, crimes tend to be clustered along major roads and in commercial districts. It's rare that I see crimes pop up in the residential areas -- and I subscribe to the daily e-mail updates so I see all crimes within 2 miles of my home.

Take a look at this crime map. It defaults to only showing two weeks, but you can expand it to 3 months back I think. CrimeMapping.com - National Map It should give you a pretty good idea of what's going on crime wise in different areas.

Not particularly desirable, either...and nowhere close to Decatur the city proper. The only Decatur zips that I would personally consider living in are 30030 and 30033.

Oops sorry Intown! I thought I read through all the posts, but must not have paid attention. Sorry to duplicate what you posted. I second it as a good resource though.
