Hi all,

I am planning to move to CC but I'm a little concerned about apartment living as a single female. I've read a lot of apartment ratings posted online and many mentioned car theft or break ins.

I want to live near the university and can anyone comment or whether that area is safe? Also my car is not very fancy but it's not a clunker either and only a year old, so would it be a target?

I have a dog and am also wondering how safe the parks are to walk in alone. Thank you.

The area around the university is safe enough as long as you use good sense. I wouldn't walk a dog at midnight at Hans Suter park, but I'd feel safe through the early evening. I'm not sure about how rampant car break-ins are in the apartment complexes near the university. There are two townhome complexes close by that have garages. If you could afford to rent one of those, most likely with a roommate, you wouldn't have a problem. I don't think you have any more to worry about moving here than you would in any city of this size.

Welcome and good luck!

Thank you Marlow and CptnRn. This is the kind of information I am looking for. It's important to me to be able to do outdoor things and go around the city without feeling like I am in danger.

I appreciate your responses!

So I just finished reading on the CC newspaper's web site that early Friday evening on Saratoga Blvd near Greenwood Dr a man stood up in the back of a pick up and fired five shots into a SUV.

I always thought Corpus was too small to have this kind of problem. I'm rethinking my decision to move there

If you're going to be a student at TAMUCC, it is unlikely that you'll ever be in the area of Saratoga and Greenwood, unless you go to PeeWee's pet adoption to adopt an animal, and that will be during the day time. CC has crime, but that sounds like gang violence and unless you are in a gang, you should not have a problem.

I'm not trying to talk you into moving to CC if you won't feel comfortable, but you need to remember that on that same night there were approximately 287,000 people who were not involved in a crime.

I was thinking,,, Saratoga and Greenwood is pretty much in the middle of NO-where. Who would be there in the night without a good reason? The answer is,,, nobody who is an upstanding citizen. There is a Mexican sort of based community there, a few taco shops, an auto parts junk yard, and a few other businesses that cater to the ethnic area, but it is not an area that lends itself to the better CC overall greater improvement picture.

Somebody shoots somebody there, I'd guess it's probably an illegal immigrant gang activity, it won't affect CC in the long run. You don't have to live there.
