Default zip codes + or -

Hi all - we're moving to Phoenix and plan to rent. We don't want to commute too far from city.

Have you anything + or - to say about the following zip codes as far as safety, proximity to parks or open space, or community centers? Other ideas for good places to live? Thanks to any who can help!

As long as you are looking at those zips, don't leave out 85020. Parts of it -- mostly in Sunnyslope -- are gritty, but other portions of it border the Phoenix Mountain Preserve and lie within the desirable Madison School District.

Keep in mind, however, that you can't make too many decisions at the zip code level. Many zip codes take in areas that vary from one block to another, making it hard to generalize. Use those zips, plus the one I suggested, as a starting point and but then really look around from one street to another. Using satellite views on Google Maps can help too.
