22yo, recent graduate, looking at moving into village?
Any opinions, thoughts?

Looking for a young professional atmosphere and seems to be a 10-15 minute commute to uptown and seems close to knox/henderson nightlife.

The Village is ok, there are areas that are nicer than others. What is your budget? Most 22 year old recent graduates prefer Uptown, but it is a tad pricier.

It's cheap, fairly safe, perfect age range for you.

Do you have any specific questions? I've lived in the Village for close to 2 years.

Agree.

Lots of early 20's at the Village. They've managed to keep it looking nice after being around for many years.

Lots of other places in your price point in the area. Padmapper.com 75219 75204 75206 75202

If you have time to check out both areas, I would. You are going to be closer to the nightlife (as in walkable) in Uptown, where in the Village you'll be cabbing it a lot. I would imagine it would be possible to find something in that range in Uptown, although I haven't lived in that area for a few years, so it may be higher now.

I really interested in the new complex in the village... I think what I like the most are the amenities and activities and outdoorsy areas... I feel this apartment community has more than the basic amenities. Close to the busy/loud/bar life but just far away to where I don't hear it every night of the week.

Oh if you have found a specific place that you like there, then yes, I would say it's a good area. I think most people in your age range either end up living in either the Village or Uptown- pretty equally split. The little jogging track over there is a nice feature and you are right, you won't have to deal with the noise on the weekends.

Are there SMU graduate students around?
Is it relatively safe?
How much would a cab be from village to uptown?
