The best neighborhoods in Austin, Texas have the lowest crime rates. Some are experiencing gentrification, but almost all of them are where the most expensive homes are. The only exceptions are some of the northern suburbs.
To understand the correlation between crime rates and gentrification, it’s important to understand that racial segregation before the Fair Housing Act, Austin’s population growth and demand for housing close to downtown have all contributed to transforming Austin into what it is now. They will also continue influence what Austin will become.
