I will be moving to Hollywood, Fl from Seattle next month. My apartment will be southwest of the intersection of Sheridan and Federal Hwy on Thomas St. (US 1?). Is this area safe?

Not the absolute worst, but pretty bad. Look elsewhere if you can.

I agree with compelled to reply's post. That area is pretty sketchy. If you're not already locked into a lease, I'd suggest staying anywhere between US 1 and I-95 if possible.

^Simply said, no. Granted that area is getting better, but it's a work in progress at best.

Use this map. If your budget can't afford anything labeled in the green, the "blue" areas are acceptable. //www.city-data.com/forum/fort-...nty-rated.html

That area is in green on the map. It does border a yellow area but the area with the apartments I'm interested in falls within the green area.

Let me be frank here. If I move into the apartment in Hollywood, do I have a high probability of getting murdered/robbed/assaulted? That is literally the only thing I'm worried about. I don't care if the buildings are ugly, or if there are druggies/hookers/lowlifes, but as long as there aren't a bunch of murderers, rapists, burglars, terrorists, etc, I'm ok. For my budget, my standards are pretty low.

It is probably fine.

Murdered- No.
Robbed- Higher than average chance, but probably not.
Burglarized- Pretty good chance of this.
Assaulted- Depends on your company. Probably not.

Even if I keep my doors and windows always locked and my car doors locked with the windows rolled up and a car alarm?
