From what areas should I avoid apartment listings in Denver? I've already found Montbello by experience, for example.

Pretty much everything north of the 70/east of the 25 except for Stapleton. The area just west of Stapleton in North Park Hill.

Five Points/Whittier isn't for everyone, but some blocks might be fine for you. Same for areas west of the 25/south of Colfax.

Depends on what you are used to. Memphis has worse areas, but as far as Denver goes Mntbello is an area most choose to avoid.

This question gets asked all the time and every time it gets asked it seems like the only people who respond live in Castle Rock.

How do I know? Old white people who live in the country are universally terrified of Colfax. Any one of us who actually live in Denver love the street.

OP, you seem to be looking in the Montbello area. In the late 70's and 80's much of the African American population of Denver fled to this corner of Denver. Socio-economically it is among the poorest areas in Denver proper. Still, the term bad neighborhood is relative, the worst neighborhood in Denver is 2X as nice as a middle of the road neighborhood in Detroit.

Using crimereports.com, most of 80011 east of the freeway doesn't appear to have any more or less crime than anywhere else in the area. In fact, the Apache Mesa neighborhood looked fine outside of the major intersections (which is where most crime appears to happen).

Looking at that map told me one thing: less density = less crime.
