Also, another question, the house that we're looking at says it's in East Benson, but then it also says Fontenelle.. are they in the same area?

The area you will be in is probably split 50-50 black/white. Biracial couples are everywhere. I'm biracial myself. It won't be a problem for you.

I wouldn't call where you are in Florence. Florence is much further north but your place would actually be close to Florence Boulevard.

Thanks again.. I know i'll be asking more questions real soon!!
Some areas are gang infested and ghetto just like any other city. The area you are referring to isn't as bad as some other areas.



I would definitely check out areas along Leavenworth St. from 60th St. to 34th or so. There are many rentals in that area as it's close to UNO, the Med Center, and Creighton.

Yes, same area.

Fontanelle Blvd is a main street that meanders right down through that area.

The house you mentioned, on roughly 45th & Miami, should actually be a decent location for you if you're renting. It'd take you 10 minutes to get to UNO, 10 minutes to get to downtown, etc. There are a lot of your run-of-the-mill restaurants very close, grocery stores close, etc.


It might be of use to you to look into Craigslist. They have quite a few rentals listed.

Oops I thought she said Florence, not Fontenelle.

Yeah - Florence is clear up in the extreme NE part of city. A pretty cool area, for sure, but quite a distance from UNO.

Considering how congested parking at UNO tends to be, it'd be great if they could get close enough for hubby to be able to bike to the campus. There are some nice little areas south of Leavenworth, just to the east of 60th Street.

Hartland BBQ on about 54th & Maple - east end of downtown Benson.

My wife & I have decided that they have the best BBQ Pork Sandwich we've ever eaten.
