So it’s kind of hard to explain, but I’d like to know how to say something along the lines of ‘in these parts, (noun) is (adjective)’. ‘Parts’ of course referring to an area or place where the speaker is located.

    Do you mean you want to say something like "around here" as in "Walking at night is dangerous around here"? – naruto Sep 4 '18 at 9:38

    By "an area or place" I picture a geographical region. Is this what you have in mind? I think it would be helpful if you gave a particular example (or more than one), not just a formulaic one — especially considering that not all users of the site are native speakers of English. Also, how would you say this in Japanese in your own words (even if you feel your translation doesn't quite hit the mark)? – Earthliŋ Sep 4 '18 at 9:38

この辺 means "around here," so I think you could say

around here, people are kind/gentle
