SOOO I found an apartment in town. Something affordable, something small. Downfall: It's in a very questionable part of town. There was a shooting like two blocks west and then an assault like 2 blocks east within the past year. I am sure that there has been more violence but I can't pull news articles. A sex offender is at the end of my block, too. According to friends who've lived there for life my street is "quiet." I have a car and apparently a driveway, so I'm not nervous.
So... question. How do you deal with moving from the burbs to a shitty part of the city? What have you worried about/have you had issues? If I ignore all of the shit & don't walk everywhere (no plan to) will I be good?
