New Haven- The dual identity city

This city has it's good points that set it far above the normal city attractions such as Yale, the museums, the historical background, beaches, music, clubs/venues, nightlife, restaurants, festivals, and culture. However, there is a horrible dark side to this city. I know this because I see what's going on outside my window, watch the local news, read statistics, and are constantly woken up at night by the sirens from police cruisers and ambulances driving by to find the next young victim of a gang related shooting. The apartment I live in now I found for rent in the classifieds. It was big, beautiful, clean, architecturally stimulating with utilities included, and in our price range!! We viewed it during the day at the end of summer. It seemed ok, pretty quiet, and not too far from downtown. We signed the lease and moved in. Now, almost a year later, we have realized we now live right in the middle of gang territory. I'm afraid to walk alone anywhere, my car got stolen, and there are illegal activities everywhere you go. Basically the moral to this story is research and research some more where you think you want to move to. There may be a good reason why that awesome home/apt is so cheap! Another tip, don't trust realtors or property owners. It's all about the $ they'll be raking in. I'm NOT saying that all of New Haven is bad/ unsafe, it's not. There are wonderful sections of NH to live in. But you have to be careful all the time and know the places to stay away from!
