I will be viewing a rental unit very close to that intersection. I was just wondering if anyone who is more ITB savvy would know if that is a good area? Thanks!

I just read something that said South street was the "line" where the bad neighborhood starts. Hmm. Written in 2006. :-/

I am assuming that you mean the intersection of S Boylan Ave and W South Street?

If so........I wouldn't choose to live there. The Mayor lives on Boylan but at the top end near to the bridge and that is nice and there is re development making it's way down Boylan Ave

I'd suggest speaking to the residents of the area, try attending the CAC meeting or one of the other links I sent. I would trust the residents much more than us anonymous internet posters.

East of Boylan and south of South has traditionally been where the neighborhood goes downhill. However at that intersection I think you'd be fine. I lived just a couple blocks from there back in 98-99 and loved it! I walked through the entire neighborhood frequently, including Boylan/South, and never had a problem. We had the occasional junkie walk through "looking for work - cut your grass, wash your windows?", but never took them up and never had any issues.

Now, that was more than a decade ago and the whole area around there has gentrified a lot. It's a great location convenient to many amenities, so I'd give it strong consideration.
