I signed a lease for an apartment in the Forum Apartments and Health Club today on MLK. For locals, that's an area on MLK in between Central Parkway and Dixmyth.
After I told a friend that, he gave me an "ouch", and said that area is kind of sketchy. He showed me this crime density map (raidsonline.com) and sure enough, the address for the complex is right on the border of a big red spot for crime.
I checked some reviews, and while there were a lot of complaints (people apparently expect perfection, because there are no communities with good reviews anywhere on the Internet), none of them mentioned any crime.
I'm a little worried now, anyone know anything about that area?
