Yes, there would be far less crime and it's an area your son could play outside as well as an area you'd feel safe if your husband was working nights for example. No comparison in how you would feel (with Codell drive that is).

I would say maybe. There's some pockets in that general area that aren't too bad. It would depend exactly on what you're looking at. There's also some areas there that are similar to Codell Drive and I wouldn't recommend. If you can give specifics, people can probably help narrow that area down.

Sadly, we are in quite a bind. We are leaving in less than two weeks and are on a limited budget until we know what our expenses will be in comparison to my husbands new pay. Add to that the fact that we are not having luck finding anything available for at least another month.

I have checked the crime in the area of that complex and fortunately it was pretty minimal. So, we are just going to sign the shortest lease we can, get a dog and look elsewhere. Besides, winter is coming soon and crime always seemed to drop in Indianapolis when winter rolled around. Hopefully it's the same in Lexington.

You can find low-cost, low-crime apartments in the 40503 zip code. I can't think of a single dangerous area in that zip code, but there are some very inexpensive areas. That is a quick reliable tip if you are pressed for time.

Even if it doesn't help you (if you've already signed a short lease), it may help someone who reads this next...

We've moved to Lexington and are in Cedarwood Apartments on Codell Dr. I have to say I am confused at the posts about this area. I don't know if it's because I've lived in San Francisco Bay area, Indianapolis (750,000) and San Antonio (1.8 million and really high crime) but this area seems okay to me. The complex is well maintain, quiet and the neighbors are very nice. I would recommend this place. It's convenient to shopping and it's pretty easy to get downtown. Guess I'm just used to areas with higher crime.
