It really depends on your price range. The more you pay, the better the neighbourhood. Lower income scum can't afford the higher priced homes and the newer areas arent generally used as as investment properties to rent. There are a few meatheads around here in various areas of town. If you have property in mind, post it here and Ill try to let you know whether it is in a decent lcation or not

Just because they are low income people does not mean they are scum. There high income scum in this town also, they just hide it better. There are safe areas all around Prince Rupert. You just have to look. check out the website www.mls.ca

"Scum" is a little harsh when describing residents of a community. I don't believe that any one area can be classed as unsafe, but there are factors to consider in the location such as view and proximity to services. Good return for dollar can be had by purchasing on Graham Ave, Atlin Ave & 2nd Avenue West

Upon reading my comments a second time I have to apologize for them. I live in a middle income cul de sac that is roughly 30 years old. In this neighbourhood there are alot of people that had bought new homes years ago and raised thier children is this neighbourhood. There are a few homes that have been vacated by longtime owners and used as rental property. I am sorry but some of these homes have been occupied by lower income people who like to party, are dirty and have no neighbourhood respect. The lawns are completely unkept and have gone the entire year without mowing the lawn. Trash and junk are around in the yards. Thefts have increased in this neighbourhood in the past couple of years as well.

I see that this is something that is happening alot in town. Those that had to leave town during hard economic times have had to either rent their homes to the first takers or lose them all together. That is bringing some undesirables into normal family neighbourhoods. Newer subdivisons teseem to have more permanent residents andhave less of the aforementioned issues. I did not mean to group all low income people into one basket.

I still own a house in good ol' Prince Rupert. I, like many others, had to leave because of the economic situation (used to work at Skeena). I left behind many very good friends and family. My house is currently empty, I haven't been able to rent it out as I no longer live in PR, so have just given up. Hopefully things will 'pick up' for those that are still there that truly deserve it.

Good for you Gordon. Poorer people are not 'scum'!

I lived in rupert for quite some time. VERY GLAD I LEFT! Too far away from decent amenities, try to fly out in winter (you'll have a tough time), weather in general is crap - way too much rain. The only good thing was the people, but they honestly could not make up for the rest. Compared to southern BC the north west coast area is still in a deep depression, not only economically but mentally too.
