I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts on this neighborhood in terms of safety, racial/gentrification tension, or general advice for me: a young white woman who's considering moving to Regent Place by myself (this is off Ocean Ave. between Albemarle & Beverly).
The building I'm looking at self-identifies as "in transition," and while I'm aware that this means getting what the management feels are so-called undesirables out and replacing them with people like me, I wonder how I would be perceived by my neighbors and whether I would feel safe and comfortable being one of "those people."
Actually, I already am one of those people in Crown Heights, but in a quieter, more neighborhoody, and much less "in transition" neighborhood. So I'm fine with being the racial minority and accustomed to stares, etc.
But since I'm unfamiliar with this area, I wonder if any of you can tell me your thoughts? Specifically if you were me, would you feel okay moving there on your own?
Thanks in advance.
