There are pockets like the ones you described in the city. But they are islands surrounded by higher crime areas. And in the city of Tucson the homeless population has really exploded. I am sure the crime rate has also.

I moved back to Tucson after living in a Midtown-like historical district in Phoenix. It was great, old houses and funky neighbors, easy access to bars within walking distance. The downside was that the homeless and drug users didn't stop at the neighborhood boundaries. Never got a decent full night of sleep because never knew if my dog was growling because a neighbor's cat was walking through my yard or it was another homeless person trying to break into my garage again.

Love the actual city of Tucson to visit on the weekends to hit stores and restaurants. But at night I prefer being in the county 10 miles north of the city limits.

IMO the divide is more gradual. The farther you move away from Tucson City Hall, the less corruption and waste you find. I’ve lived in the Tucson metro area for five years and have never seen a worse situation for the condition of the roadways and the trashiness of public spaces. I guess people are numb to it.
