I'd feel quite safe walking in the ghetto, or walking downtown from EDo, but I would be cautious walking from EDo to the ghetto/UNM.

Ridgecrest is great. So many nice leafy areas around ABQ to pick from, if that's what you want. Altura Pk. is really nice, and also some great tree-ed neighborhoods along Candelaria.

Too many Bart Prince creations in that area.

I had to look him up. After going through his site, I have to demand that you
take back anything you ever said about Rio Ranch being cookie-cutter.

Massively ugly, yes; cookie cutter, no...

I rode my bike from UNM, down Martin Luther King, took a turn off to check out side streets and ended up at that school-turned-loft project.... and then some. Seemed ok. Was early morning however.

I'm wishing I moved closer to downtown. I ended up in Nob Hill which is too close to big-street garbage for me. WalMart w/i stone's throw - yuck.

At least you're not up in the Heights like me. You should count your blessings. I'll get you started... 1) I live in Nob Hill.

It is a pretty cool area - too bad you won't get to experience Bob's Fish & Chips. IMO the best in ABQ.

No, I'm not in the Heights but Nob Hill...well, its not for me. It's great looking and has great shops, but shopping isnt really an "activity" for me. I would like to be able to pop into a seedy bar after work and have a beer, listen to some music. I feel another forum topic coming on.....
