Just two - 3 blocks from me (South Main Street) &nbsp;is "not good" at night generally speaking - not dangerous, just that there's all kinds of traffic at night. But I live surrounded by a great, quite diverse community of people. My next door neighbors don't even lock their doors when they go to work (I think that;s going a little too far)<br/><br/>Henry street's not too far from the water, which is a real plus.
