If I ever had to live in the Bay Area again,Alameda would be my FIRST choice. You can even commute by ferry and the art deco "downtown" is wonderful. Don't know anything about crime but I certainly feel safe walking around there. CD stats should have something on crime.Good luck. I think you'll like it.

Alameda is a unique place, and I wouldn't hesitate to live there.

When we relocated in 2008 from the east coast we landed in Alameda. We stayed for five months in an apartment complex on Shoreline Drive. The town itself is wonderful, safe and has everything that we needed and more. Being small it afforded me the opportunity to easily explore and use this as a jumping off point to learn more about the East Bay.
Eventually we moved to Oakland which is more to my liking but I would not at all hesitate to live on Alameda Island.
Shoreline Drive overlooks the Bay and is close to shopping. Very convenient and even has a bus that will take you SF.
Although overpriced for what they are I recommend that you check out the apartments on this street. The building we lived in had very thin walls though and you could hear noise all the time drifting in from the neighbors. That was my only complaint.
