Default Save the apostrophe

1. It is Pecos. No apostrophe.

2. 40th and Pecos is fine.
a. http://www.denvergov.org/Portals/337/documents/2011/11d1.pdf (broken link)
b. Close to Pochitos Tortilla Factory - Northwest - Denver, CO

3. You are bouncing all over the northern part of Denver.

4. I (repeat I) prefer Sunnyside over Whittier. Others will disagree.
With Sunnyside, you need to avoid the edges. 38th Ave. Federal Blvd.
I would pay more to live 1+ block west of Pecos as Pecos is somewhat of an edge.

5. I just thought of this. Look at the restaurants.
How many interesting, local restaurants are in the neighborhood?
Sunnyside has a bunch: Ernies, Hash, Paxia, etc.

Default Bouncing....

Yes I know. I am bouncing...I'm a territory rep and will be working all over without having to be anywhere at any particular time....I make my own schedule and have a large territory. Denver is so darned big it's easy to go from one side to the other. I'm even looking at Golden and down to Indian Hills. It's when I get into the Denver metro area that I get uncomfortable because it seems 2-3 blocks can make such a difference.

I appreciate your insights.

Default Here is what I would do

Make a map of your territory.
Now, for each Zip code stack a bar on top that represents the value to you.

This will tell you where you will be driving to the most.

Now, you know where to live.

I have some relatives living real close to there. They talk a lot about how many white people are moving in last 2 years. Forget the racial implications, its just how a minority (Mexicans in this case) sees a neighborhood getting to be higher income.

Probably okay now. Used to be sketchy. A few blocks east and it's still sketchy. Only you can decide whether that's a situation you're comfortable with. As others have mentioned, I woudl be careful about living right on (or very near) any major street, including Pecos.
