      I live a few blocks away and it’s not bad at all & it’s made a lot of progress the past few years. I think a few blocks to the north east had some issues (W & Rhode Island) a bit back. Boundary Stone bar is a few blocks away

      I love this neighborhood and feel safe even when walking home at night.

  • No one can “prove wrong” your subjective feeling of fear, but this is a lovely neighborhood.

    wow this is a great deal.
    i’m generally not a big fan of the northern part of eckington. there is a lot of drug dealing, the occasional shooting, and lots of illegal dumping. but this place is priced with that in mind, i think.

    to anon 4:17, to my knowledge there aren’t a lot of muggings, or home break ins in this part if neighborhood. further southeast of here there have been a lot. so many that neighbors have held special meetings to try to deal with it. i don’t think there are many car breaks in either. it is still an area that you should be cautious.
