I live in the SE/Winchester area and the bus transportation is among the best in the city, with the exception of the Desert Inn bus line, where after certain hours, the buses only run every hour on the hour. If you're closer to Sahara, which I suspect you're not because you're walking distance to grocery stores, then the buses there run more frequently, every half-hour. There's also the Pecos/McLeod bus line which can take you north or south to Trop, Flamingo or north to Sahara.

I'm on DI/Pecos. Great location if you don't have a car. 6 grocery stores within 2-5 blocks of my house, 8 bars, and other commercial offerings.

A bike would serve you well, too, at least for shopping. Perhaps not, if you're out traversing the valley via bus.

Hi tijlover, The two bus lines near me are the Desert Inn Road and Pecos/Mcleod. Can you possibly recommend some apartment complexes in your area? I have a 2 month lease here that ends the end of August, and am looking into other areas.

Thank you!!

Sadly, there aren't that many apt. bldgs in the "townhouse district" as there are so many older townhouse complexes in this area.

I know exactly where you are. I believe there's SunChase apt.'s across near the corner. Going east to Majave you have Cottonwood and another which I wouldn't recommend and another stop light east is Rosewood at Pecos, which would might be the better of the 3. I have walked my ferret at night (between midnite and 3am around that complex) and no problems, very quiet.
But no recommendation.

Since you come from an urban area, as well as myself, you're probably seeking a more urban area, with lots of conveniences to walk to, and this area of town has that.

Perhaps, given the every-hour service at nite on Desert Inn, you might want to consider moving south to Flamingo/Pecos/Renaissance/Food4Less corner
and, again, the apt. buildings there are limited as well. Only one up there.

I've lived in this area for 14 years and I consider it very safe area of town, and so urban.

Otherwise you may want to move closer to UNLV/Maryland/Trop/Flamingo and you'll have lots of urban amenities there as well, and lots of activities at UNLV to attend to, and great bus connections.

There are, strangely, two Pecos over here. Pecos-Mcleod, and if you go two stop lights east, you come to Pecos Road, the area I live in.

And if you really like this townhouse district, you might consider renting a small townhouse. At my complex, you can now rent a 1300SF unit for $700-800 a month.

If I can be of any other help, let me know. But for a former NYer you'll enjoy East Central.
