My potential roommate and I are looking at a place on 59th and telegraph ave. near the Berkeley/Oakland border. Is that area ghetto? Does it have a lot of crime?

i know waterfront is bad, but other than that u should be good. north oakland and west oakland are kinda of the same cause u got ghetto black people living next door to middle class white people and they seem to get along.

north oakland is nowhere near as ghetto as west oakland. you should be cool on 59th and telegraph, just dont move to 55th, gaskill or market

I'm living in South Berkeley for the summer and honestly, it's a lot worse than I expected. In the past month that I've been living here there have been 5 homicides within South Berkeley and every night I hear at least a few cop cars go past my window. Every morning there is a new car window smashed in on the street. And I'm not even that far down Telegraph (I'm on Dwight). I won't travel alone late. I don't know what you're expecting, but this definitely isn't the nicest/most safe place in the Bay.
