Hi, manny and welcome to the SE1 Forum.
I have lived in SE1 for the last 7 years [after 16 years 'down the road' in SE16], so I feel that I know the area pretty well.
Sure, there are parts of the E&C which make me feel uncomfortable - but, then, I know several young women who walk home from Bermondsey Square
without incident, at night, and feel perfectly safe.
Bermondsey is a much wider area but I feel safe where I live, around Leathermarket Street
Like any cosmpoplitan City, there will always be pockets of potential problems and sometimes an overlap.
I love this area; the people [from born'n'bred locals to international residents], the central location, the amenities, restaurants etc. Give it a whirl!
