How safe is Crescent near Leese and is it a good place for young professionals?

Would you recommend using BART at night to and from this location?

Although Bernal is known as being somewhat safer than say the Mission, it is not like living in the burbs.

Here the facts, as I gather them from (you can check it out--just put in your address and it will give you crime stats within a radius of that location):

There have been no murders this year in the immediate area of Leese and Crescent.
There have, however, in the past 6 months been a lot of assualts in Bernal Heights, including a block away on the corner of Mission and Crescent (Mission gets a lot of assaults). These took place in the afternoon not night.
There have also been strong armed robberies in the area in the last two months--both took place right in the middle of the day (11 am and 1 pm respectively).

Point with all this is not you should not live here, but that you need to treat it like living anywhere else in the city: be aware of your surroundings, avoid situations where you increase your chances of something bad happening. If you are a young female or a guy who looks like an easy mark, I would not take BART at night. If you are a pretty well built guy, who is in shape, and stay aware, you should be okay. Always move quickly and stay aware.

Okay, good luck!
