Living in Poet's Corner with my family, safety concerns
I am looking for a place to stay for my family next year since I will be one year in Berkeley for a sabbatical (yeah!). I have a son that will be 6, a daughter that will be 16 and a niece that will be 17 and a husband too! That means that I need a 3 bedrooms furnished home or apartment which is hard to find since I don't want to live in the hills (I want the girls to be able to go around by bike) and I don't have 5-6000 dollars to put in the rent... I have found an affordable 3 bedroom house in 1114 Chaucer Street, in poet's corner but since I don't know Berkeley at all I wonder: is the neighborhood sure? Even at night? By sure I mean: could my two teenagers girls go out for a movie and come back without being in danger?
Every other informations on the neighborhood is also welcome, especially about the primary school there that would be Rosa Park (I have looked on BPN but the opinions about Rosa Park Elementary are quite old) but also about how it is to leave there (parks, supermarkets etc.)
Thanks so much in advance.
