So many people exaggerate how dangerous ABQ is. It's not that bad lmao

Like every city, the crime varies. Sure, the SE part of the city is pretty dangerous, and parts of the west side. But if you live closer to the city center or the heights, you'll be solid.

Have you recently been convicted of a crime, but don't want to spend the rest of your life in jail? If so, you need the best criminal defense you can get. And I, Saul Goodman, am willing to give it to you. Just call me, and I guarantee that your release date will be a good many years closer!

Better call saul!

First day in this city, and I saw this middle aged, bald, white male, selling what appeared to be some sort of methamphetamine. In broad daylight. Stay away.

I moved here around a year ago and so far my experience has been alright. I hear some gunshots every now and then and have the occasional crackhead harassing me but other than that it’s been a pretty good city

It’s rated #1 in car-related theft in the United States. Having your car broken into or stolen is very common even if you’re just visiting.
