It seems like one or two blocks are nice and clean, then blocks aways it ghetho. How safe is it walking at night? my wife is going to be taking the bus from rodney square to one of the finacial firms in downtown area. I am very concerned after learing about the rape and robbery rates in deleware. Please Advise.

Never listen to a politician. Wilmington is a ghetto and it has nothing to do with people leaving to find a nicer place to live (most intelligent rational people would and have). It has EVERYTHING to do with the poverty there now, the piles of rubble on the street, the gunshots I heard while driving through, and most of all...the lack of government involvement in taking responsibility for letting the area become the crime-ridden shithole that it is.

Rob Foraker is your typical politician, shunning the blame towards middle class backbone of America for wanting a better life, kissing ass to the rich and pretending to care for the poor.

Do you live in the huge stretch of ghetto that Wilmington is, Rob? Huuh? Yeah, thought not.

You can't even spell "intelligence" while ripping into someone else. Also, the use of the word "articles" is entirely inappropriate. Hysterical.

Bottom line: Wilmington = GHETTO

ALL of Wilmington should be torn down and leveled, and a sewage treatment plant placed there. That would be better what's there now, for the most part.

I would not recommend moving to Wilmington. North Wilmington has some very nice areas, but there are a number of very undesirable areas in Wilm.

It's ironic that ALL of the negative comments regarding the question as to the safety of downtown Wilmington, come from NON-RESIDENTS! As a Wilmington RESIDENT, I must protest the commentators are pompous asses blowing smoke up their own. They seem to speak for the sake of hearing themselves. Oh well, for the record: I am a life long Wilmington resident who has lived in various parts of this fine city and I declare it safe.We are definitely as safe as American suburbia.

It's much safer if you carry a gun. That's what police do.

No wonder the rest of america calls it Delaweird!! I was considering moving to Wilmington, but no one want to just have a conversation about the area. Tell me why it's a great place to live... I live in Cincinnati, and I can rattle off why you should move downtown. What's wrong with you folks?? You are so negative? Get a life... it's too short!

If all you can say about Wilmington is that it is safer than north Philly, then it must be pretty bad.
