Eleventh, the Grandma Grandpa I Wear Blue For My Grandson Autism Awareness T Shirt . Some people complain about the crime (I can confirm that at least by the police reports there is a general level of crime, not sure how it compares to other cities). Generally the area is just gross looking other than the campus, not necessarily a bad thing but a lot of Route 1 just isn’t the nicest. I walked 3 miles alone to my house down Rhode Island at 2 am pretty frequently and was never robbed, but I knew some people who were. I heard 2 gun shots in 3 years of living in the area, I’m genuinely not sure if that is bad or good. One thing I know for sure is that in 3 years I only felt unsafe once or twice, but that might because I am a guy (girls had a different perspective but that is to be expected). The area is conveniently close to lots of things so it has that going for it, but the traffic is a nightmare.
