Highlawn/St. Mary's -- okay or terrible area to live?

I'm considering buying a home in this neighborhood, maybe a block or so from the hospital. I know it's had some crime issues (but really, what part of Huntington DOESN'T have crime issues these days?), but I don't know much about it. Any thoughts?

Thanks for the quick feedback, everyone -- I'm totally fine with okay, average, meh, etc. as long as I'm not going to be dodging hookers and crack dealers every time I step outside. :)

I have lived here for 3 years with my wife. We are both young professionals and we love it here. The neighborhood schools are nice, the neighborhood is well kept up (for the most part) and crime is low compared to the rest of the city.
