To them, responds Gerard:
If we're gonna live in fear of every single place that a crime ever occurred, none of us will ever leave the house. Crime happens everywhere -- even in the (gasp) suburbs! I know!What do you think of the neighborhood around The Plimoth? Is there a restaurant you're reluctant to visit because of its location?
Full disclosure: I *do* live here. It's awesome. Great neighbors, sense of community, close to downtown, architecture, parks, etc. I spent the previous decade in the oh-so-safe environs of West Washington Park, and the low-level crime there dwarfs what I've experienced here.
But hey, no skin off my nose! No worries about paying you to live here, either. There are lots and lots of people who will do the paying themselves, because they want to live in Denver, not US Homesville.
And What do you consider the best neighborhood restaurant in town? That's one of the questions on our Best of Denver 2014 Readers' Poll, and the deadline for voting is today. Cast your ballot here.
