Im from 5th n Madison been there my whole life. I declare Wilmington unsafe. However their are plenty of areas that are safer than the other. The only problem is the inner city is majority hood, if you move to a relatively nice area in Wilmington then most likely you will have to worry about getting robbed. Don't move here save yourself. If you do move out Newark, Middletown. Those are safer choices.

I grew up in Wilmington in the 50's and 60's. It was a great place to live. I moved away in 1969 and used to go back to visit my parents often. They are gone now so I rarely go there. Wilmington has definitely gone downhill over the years. It looks shabby. I went to Mt. Pleasant H.S. which used to be one of the best in the state. I understand that it now has police in the hallways. The crime rate is alarming. I wouldn't want to live there now. It's sad.

Contrary to what people believe, Wilmington isn't really that bad. It's just like any other city. Every city is going to have bad parts.
