We visited Albuquerque (and Santa Fe and Taos) back in 2010 and are thinking of coming back this summer. But recently I read an article about a group of nuns who moved here to TN because their area of NM (somewhere around Alb.) was getting very unsafe. Granted we spent most of our time in Bernalillo, Rio Rancho, Sandia, Old Town and the North part of Alb. but we never felt unsafe... Surely it hasn't changed that much has it??
I am hoping that its like any city, where there are certain places you just stay away from, because I LOVED the area and would not hesitate to come back. Any thoughts? Thanks!
