Hello All

I'm a single, bi, black woman (bartender) whose moving to Denver from Miami at the end of this year. Mostly due to the point that I want more things to do (outdoors) than Miami offers (snow) plus I'm planning on going to college there (undergraduate~journalism) and I was wondering if what would be the best neighborhood for someone like me to move into. I realize that every city/neighborhood has its dangers so I'm not looking for anything perfect just some where I can walk down the street and meet people my age (besides school). I'm purchasing a new truck so commute/distance isn't a major problem. Any other advice would be much appreciated.

Cap Hill, Lodo, Highlands, City Park, Cheesman, Wash Park are all good areas for someone that is young and single

Move anywhere in the south areas of Denver. Stay away from Capitol Hill. Join a gym like Gym Riki where you can meet people who care.

What's wrong with Capitol Hill? That would be my first suggestion.

Hey Bartender, set 'em up!

Look in our index of threads for lots of existing info on the areas mentioned already, and for things like car-free living and the RTD (light rail) and other topics most people are concerned with. Tons of info already here; the search tool is very good, use whatever keywords might be of interest to you.

What about Belmar (Lakewood) and Cherry Creek? Just curious relative to those above.

There is nothing wrong in living Capital Hill or areas within the central business areas of Denver. The area has many good neighborhoods and much of the worse parts have been redeveloped with new housing. The Central Area is a good example of a thriving, mixed area that is ethnically diverse and is desired by many people, who can afford to live there. The area is becoming much more expensive as time goes by, which indicates the desirability of living in the inner city.

Denver is not one of those cities where people are fleeing. The population is increasing and Denver has great relations between all White, Hispanic and Blacks etc. Almost all areas of Denver are in redevelopment and many areas are not that old, or decayed that need development. It is a Great City that will welcome you as a Single Black Women. Having grown up in New York and living here for over 30 years, I can easily say it is much different than the racial problems of the cities, I remember from my youth.

Ignore the previous poster "behind the curtain"; he is not the "wizard", he pretends to be.

Ok. You win! And BTW. Don't take the interest to read the police reports on personal assaults, theft, rape, etc. That won't validate your poor advice. The city may be growing but so are its statistics...
