Revere Beach Pkwy is a busy road and it depends on which end of it you are moving too. Parts of Revere are still really nice and then others can be run done and have a high crime rate. It is centrally located to Boston and public transportation which is a definite plus. Obivously closer to the city you are more prone to crime but not as great as living in Boston.

Revere Beach Parkway runs all the way from Wellington Circle in Medford to the beach it's named for, passing through four cities: Medford, Everett, Chelsea, and Revere. Its most dangerous aspect is the heavy traffic - crime levels aren't that bad along any stretch. But the beach end is definitely shaky after dark. All of the cities have seen better days and are struggling to adapt to 21st-century realities: the decline of the middle class, a radical demographic shift from heavily Italian-American (in the case of Medford, Everett, and Revere) and Irish-American and Jewish (Chelsea) to "melting pot" (Central American, Brazilian, and West Indian immigrants along with growing Hispanic and AA populations), the public schools' lower quality, deteriorating housing, etc. What remains intact is a strongly held sense of pride among the many long-term residents who've stayed, along with an acceptance of human diversity which was absent from that area - as well as throughout most of Greater Boston - for too long. The close proximity to the ocean and Boston, as well as the fact that well-established businesses have stayed in operation and even some new ones have gotten started, bode well for the future.
So, you should feel OK about moving there regardless of which part of the road you'll be along.

I lived in Revere many years ago and loved it. Visited not long ago and was astonished at the commercial development. Decided I would never want to live there again. It lost all it's character.
