Can anyone tell me anything about the Green Street area in Olde Towne Portsmouth, specifically the new Green St. apartments? I know a lot of ppl on here are anti P-Town. Safety for a single female, parking, and a place to walk the dog are my main concerns. Nearby grocery stores?? If anyone has info on the traffic/commute to Norfolk (17th&Church area), I would appreciate hearing that too. Also if anyone can recommend a good doggy daycare in the area.

Olde Towne is a pretty decent part of Portsmouth, although you may have sketchy pockets. The only grocery store I know near there is a Food Lion across from Norcom High School, and that's a somewhat sketchy area.

You'd be right next to the Downtown Tunnel, which is a plus, and not too far from the Midtown Tunnel, but traffic is very hit or miss at any time of the day. Working on Church Street, you may want to consider Ghent in Norfolk. The neighborhoods are similar (Colonial style architecture), and no tunnel.
