Most reviews here seem to be solely focused on the crime in Anchorage. Makes sense as Anchorage is a very dangerous city, but there are things you need to know before forming an opinion on Anchorage. I've reviewed the data of various neighborhoods in Anchorage and I've found that the more south you go, the safter Anchorage gets. What is considered South Anchorage (Below ~Tudor Road or below UAA) is much safer than what is considered North Anchorage. ---North Anchorage Crime (North of Tudor Road):Pop: 123,409 Total Crime: 7,312 Per 100k Violent Crime: 1,465 Per 100kMurders: 20.8 Per 100k (24 Total)---South Anchorage Crime (South of Tudor Road):Population: 106,492Total Crime: 4,863 Per 100kViolent Crime: 942 Per 100kMurders: 3.8 Per 100K (4 Total)As you can see, Anchorage is definitely a relatively safe city so long as you stay below Tudor road. It's still violent, but compared to North Anchorage; it's almost nothing. Just wanted to clear up the crime discrepancies that do exist when discussing the incredibly quick rise of crime in Anchorage. Going to south Anchorage isn't nearly as much of a task as going downtown is.
