Good old times, that will only get you a 1 bedroom there now. Summer rush, I guess.

Found an Apartment, I think in Richardson 9670 Forest Lane 75243, 12 mins drive to work BUT is it a safe area? Any suggestion on that area is appreciated.

Thanks.
NO! That is a really bad neighborhood. It's one of the top 5 crime hotspots in Dallas. There have been at least 3 drive-by shootings there in the past 6 months. Run far away!!


You really can't beat the Village for price + location. Another option would be the apartments right by Medical City (south of 635, West of 75/hospital) but I think they will be more expensive.

I am deciding between Far North Dallas/Addison.. not familiar with the areas, just from my online searches.

Any suggestion on what area to look? Apartment recommendations? My max rent is $850, 1 bedroom, no pets.

Thank you guys and drink responsibly haha
This is a great location, especially near Addison. It's the most happening place next to Arlington. Any location near Addison is a good choice. Whether it be choosing Richardson ( East of Addison) or Carrollton.
