Hello. I have rented a apartment the past two years in the downtown area, but I'm looking at possibly buying a house. I want to live in the midtown,benson,dundee area due to my job being downtown. I'm not from Nebraska but Omaha is a great city as far as I can tell. I was wondering if anyone can give me some advice on a few areas that I'm interested in. I want to be in a good neighborhood with as little crime as possible. Also is Benson a better school than Central? Here are the areas
1) North or south 51 street----north and charles, and north and lake st.
2) south 48th street to william street
3) south 42 street to shirley street
4) south 52 and jones

I really apreciate your advice. Can anyone explain where dundee is,where midtown begins and where benson fits into the equation?

Some threads that might help a little:
Limits of Dundee
Where is Benson??
Midtown is more the medical center area to downtown, IMO. My personal preference would be to go with the Dundee and midtown areas, over Benson, but thats just me. I would also go with Central over Benson, again my opinion. I only lived in Omaha for two years, visit often, but hopefully some residents will chime in for you.
