Can you be more specific about the location. A furnished apartment on 20 acres seems a bit odd, and it would help to know which highway you are referring to: Route 15, Route 220, Route 147, something else?

Yes the area north of Williamsport is quite safe. I live in Garden View and there has been very little crime here, although I don't go out much. But what you do want to look out for is getting a property on the flood plain. For an apartment, you may need renter's insurance which covers flood damages for your possessions.

The only rough part of Williamsport is some of the edges around downtown and mostly northwest of downtown where some of the projects are. It should be visible once you are there what streets to avoid. The rest of Williamsport I'd take usual precautions and there is always the option of living in nearby towns and in the country. A lot of the downtown has been cleaned up and walking around the regular areas, I don't feel threatened.
