"Ideal for young professionals"

Have found it relatively safe, close to the parks, convenient but still quiet and less of the King St buzz. Alice st can be a little busy at rush hour but it's not too bad at all, only two lanes, and much better than living near a main rd like Parramatta Rd or Euston Rd in Alexandria (have lived there). Even better if you live set back from the street.

"The Ghetto of Newtown"

I spent a large part of my life here, one of the cheapest streets in Newtown, with noisy Commission Housing scattered on both ends. Living in one of the apartments, I watched on many fights, theft and loud house raids at all hours of the day in horror from my window. Maybe pick another street around here.
