Gonna plug the place I grew up: Albany Park in Chicago. Though I've heard rents are starting to go up there as of very recently.

In NJ:
Bayonne
North Hudson towns (WNY, North Bergen, etc)
Ironbound (it’s one of the top nabes people recommend in Newark, but I wouldn’t call it trendy)
West Bergen area of Jersey City (Journal Square and the Heights are getting to be “trendy”)
Rahway, maybe Linden

Generally I would say walkable portions of college towns, quieter family neighborhoods in Chicago and Philly, and if your threshold for safe is a little bit on the lower side, then some inner city blue collar neighborhoods that haven't really gentrified.

Specifically I guess I might look at the area near the southwest portion of UF's campus in Gainesville, Durkeeville or Lakewood in Jacksonville, Jefferson Park and Berwyn in Chicagoland. I don't really know others off the top of my head. And really those Gainesville and Jax examples are borderline "legitimately walkable."

Lakewood OH fits the bill very well. It's a border suburb of Cleveland (west side) that features two heavy rail stations (Cleveland's RTA), compact density and Walk Scores mostly in the 75-77 range.

^I've definitely heard great things about Lakewood.

I'll add the NW side of campus for UF in Gainesville too. Forgot how much development has occurred over there since I was a student.

I'm very interested in Lakewood. Prices seem great and the neighborhoods seem very walkable. Too bad it's in Ohio though. I hear the weather isn't the greatest in the Cleveland area.

Anyway, other neighborhoods that fit this thread include:

Center Square, Albany, NY - Many people commonly call this downtown Albany. It's very pedestrian friendly. I just wish there was a supermarket closer.

New Scotland, Albany, NY - Lived in this neighborhood for many years. Great if you like to walk and cycle. Pizzerias, delis, post office, banks, and more within walking distance. Its neighbor, Pine Hills is also great and is closer to the Price Chopper. Lots of families in this neighborhood.

Schenectady, NY - While this city isn't known for being the safest, I've found the area between Nott and Union in between Ellis Hospital and the High School are extremely safe, quiet, and walkable. Puts you right on the border with Niskayuna which is very safe and very family friendly.

Scotia, NY - Just across the river from Schenectady is Scotia. Small, friendly community with a very walkable strip that's easy to walk to from many of the neighborhoods. I personally think this is the best kept secret in the Capital Region. Scotia's known for being safe. All along Mohawk Ave you have everything you need: barbershops, jewelry stores, banks, gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants, bars, and more.

It's still pretty cheap compared to other north and near west side neighborhoods.


Nighthawk is a good spot too.

Sloan's Lake in Denver. South of the trendy Highlands, but with all the advantages.
