If you could live in any neighborhood in Spokane, which would it be. Which one are the nicest, in terms of leafy green, quiet streets and beautiful homes? Which are the safest?

Any such nice neighborhoods that are also walkable, and close to safe parts of downtown?

Manito, Cannon Hill Park, Cliff Park, Rockwood, and Comstock.
In no particular order.
I live in Rockwood and I love it.

For the safest, I would vote Eagle Ridge. It is a planned development not foot accessible, you need to drive there on the highway and up a large hill. Check the crime data, it backs this up. People who I know who live in the South Hill (Manito, Cannon and Comstock) have all complained about robberies. Yes even in Rockwood! I have kids so I feel safer in areas where I know that they can play safely without encountering transients. For this reason, the area has developed a good reputation and it reflects in the cost of the housing here. It doesn’t have large trees, but the housing is beautiful and the streets are clean and smooth.

Eagle Ridge has some own concerns.

And...it’s a soulless subdivision. Fine for people who like them but not my gig.
And it doesn’t really have leafy green streets like the South Hill neighborhoods many of which are walkable or rideable to downtown. My son in law rides his bike to work downtown in good weather and puts it in the bus to come home (long uphill ride!)
I don’t feel at all unsafe here in the Rockwood neighborhood. For sure we lock cars left outside and don’t leave bikes lying around but that’s standard in any urban neighborhood. We haven’t had any thefts at all in the last five years.

Well, criminals know where rich people live (in safe, often remote neighborhoods, like the one you're looking for).

Most criminals have a few dollars for gas to drive up to those neighborhood to steal a thing or two. This is how they afford gas.

Probably remote neighborhoods (sort of outside city limits) would be best for not seeing a beat up Corolla with 7 people in it driving by your house slowly every week.

Hey there. I’d go faster, but my seven friends are weight-challenged.

There’s Sloppy, Piggy, Farty, Mayo, Big Mac, Poutine, and Zip Code. All tastefully tattooed. All good people.
