How far east of New Albany you will be working? All of the towns you mentioned are nice, but are very suburban. Not sure of your interests, but I would think a 25 y/o single guy would like parts of Columbus better.

-Waggoner Road, North of Broad and around Meijer (Blacklick);

-Pataskala
Thanks, I checked out those areas and sent out some inquiries. Hopefully they'll be available after I get done on Monday if I choose to not go the way if Stony Creek. I'm not looking at Pataskala right now tho. I'd want to be closer to the city and Pataskala seems kind of out there.

Question tho. Another big factor of why I like that place is its right next to blacklick woods. I like running and being a walking distance from that trail that goes through there would be nice. Is that area really that bad? Have you (or anyone) been in that park? I'm looking at the 6 month lease, so I just wanna be sure I wont get murdered in the those 6 months lol.

I would in a way, but for right now id wanna be someplace quieter for a little bit. Another reason i like the short lease, so I can move closer to the city if I'd like to

How far are you willing to travel to work? The areas you name are some of the areas im looking....to move my family. I'm relocating back to Columbus from Denver but did live their during my 20's. If I was a single guy as you said you are, I would be looking in the areas that would tailor to that demographic. The first ones that come to mind: German Village, Grandview, and the Short North. Worthington and Clintonville are nice spots where you are walking distance from everywhere.

From the places you mentioned, I would be looking into Westerville and Gahana.

Hope you find what you are looking for!

Blacklick Woods is great and if you like to ride your bicycle, you can pick up the Blacklick Trail from there and bike down to Three Creeks park in Groveport, then catch the Alum Creek Trail up north to Livingston (I take it to Broad). Then I work my way through Bexley and Eastmoor to get back out east.

Check it out:

The ghetto part of Reynoldsburg begins West of the high school. The closer to Brice Rd. and I-70 you get, the more ghetto it is. Lots of rentals there and not the best people in some of those rentals.

I even saw a prostitute working a bus stop there while driving down Livingston or Main. I couldn't believe my eyes! In Reynoldsburg? I called the cops and they got rid of her immediately.

You still didn't tell us where you work. If it's in one of the New Albany office parks, anything on Reynoldsburg-New Albany Road is an easy drive to work. If you work further west in Licking County, the apartments around Meijer and Target are an easy drive to work because you can take some of the back roads. Waggoner to Clark State to Beecher takes you right into Ohio 161.

From a cool quotient, I agree. From a meeting people of the opposite sex (or same sex, if that's your thing) quotient, I also agree (especially same sex since Reynoldsburg is not really a hotbed of alternative lifestyles). But I am a big believer in not wasting time. You have to devote 10 or 11 hours a day to work (including shower, breakfast, lunch and dress time). If you have to devote another 1 hour and 20 minutes driving to and from work (40 minutes each way), your life is going to suck.

I agree. I spend about two hours and 10 mins commuting daily right now. (Part of the reason why we are moving)...but then again...I live in the beautiful rocky mtns and have a breathtaking view of the continental divide each day!

To me...there needs to be a work/live balance. I wouldnt want to spend a long time in the car, but I'd trade a 25 min commute for a good area with a busy social scene (if that was my thing)...and lets be honest...outside of rush hour you can pretty much get from one side of the city to the other in 30 minutes!
