Review of Lancaster, Pennsylvania


Wondering about Lancaster's Safety
Star Rating - 12/31/2018
I was there last weekend and was extremely favorably impressed. The only hesitation, and question, I have about the place is the high crime rate. It is hard to tell from the statistics where/when/how these crimes are taking place. Are they ALL over the city? Or...primarily in one or two sections? Primarily amongst substance abusers? Any of your insights are welcome, as I'm seriously debating whether it is safe for people in their 60's to move into the heart of the city or whether wiser to move 6-8 miles outside of town.
