This is a VERY safe neighborhood. We are some what of an Industrial area but also a residential area. You are only 5 blocks from the Police station, Library and Main Street in town as well as 2 blocks from a school. It is safe as anywhere to walk and most of my guest do just that. We are just outside of Charleston and the Downtown area and although I CANNOT guarantee ANYONES SAFETY I do know there is minimal problems in this area.
