We are looking at Drexel Ave (between Shadeland Ave and N Lansdowne Ave). What's this neighborhood like and how safe is it? Thanks in advance for any help.

IMO Lansdowne Avenue is the dividing line between things become a bit sketchy to the east and decent enough to the west. That's not to say that it's the Wild West per se as you get closer to the city but I would be more cautious at night beyond the Y and the Catholic school complex.

Smile Lansdowne feels safe to me

I know that this is a couple years old but I thought I'd throw my two cents in here...

I feel very safe here. Every night I go for a run (around 9-10pm) and have encountered no issues. On my route I usually take Drexel, Essex, or W. Greenwood from Shadeland Ave. to Lansdowne Ave. I encounter fellow neighbors who are out walking their dog at that time of night. However, I have heard of a rash of bicycle thefts in the area and there is some minor youth tomfoolery once and a while. No more than other suburban areas that I have lived in the past.
