Really? Could you provide any details? I had heard that the neighborhood between Banks and Canal was ideal.

That is not too bad of an area(safety wise). You could diffinetely do a lot worse than that location. But just so you know it is usually better on the other side of Jeff Davis. As time goes on that area will probably get better and better but it still might seem a little rough around the edges right now. If you are used to less than perfect areas and some blight, then you would be fine, but maybe if you are a newcomer, I might recommend a different location.

Thanks for the info. I live in town and am looking at a (from pictures) really nice, affordable house to rent there. I did a drive-by earlier and it seemed okay. On the block directly around the corner, most of the houses were boarded up, as was the house next door, but a block or two away most of the houses were pretty nice looking. I didn't see too many threatening people in the area. I was just asking because I live across town and I'm pretty unfamiliar with this neighborhood as a whole...just wanted to get some objective opinions.

Crime isn't much worse than the other side of Jeff Davis, but the neighborhood will be more run down between jeff Davis and Broad. Its not as well maintained (more blight) as the areas closer to City Park Ave. Its not a bad neighborhood, but its not really a great one either.
