A few years ago - probably not. NOW - I don't think you would have any problems. The suburb has quietly gentrified as have Seddon and Yarraville - it just hasn't received the same media attention - although you only have to cross Williamstown Road to go from those areas to Kingsville. Chances are you will pass by your neighbours' also out walking their dogs etc. My neighbour and I regularly knock on each others door when we have left car lights on or forgotten to shut car door. People aren't nosey, but we all do tend to keep an eye out. If there is out of the ordinary or suspicious happening, someone will notice and usually say something!
