This depends on where one works. If he's working in an isolated area, with no reasonable housing options nearby, it may be more worthwhile to live in a place that's more interesting and easily accessible for after work hours.

When I first moved to SA my ideal was to commute by bike or on foot, but the place I was working was surrounded by fields, and the nearest apartment complex was in a less-than-desireable area. After living for awhile "close" to work (7 miles, but awful traffic), I eventually moved further away (12 miles) and had a shorter commute. And, I lived in the middle of great nightlife and interesting things to do on the weekends.

Where one works is a factor, but shouldn't be the only factor.

I agree with Chaka. I work at UTSA (1604 campus), and if I lived in that area, I'd probably kill myself.

Tobin Hill/Monte Vista were more to my liking, and I'm so glad that I moved where I did. It's more important to be within walking/biking/cabbing distance of places where I socialize than where I work.

Plus, the commute out to 1604 is nothing. 20 minutes, more or less.

.
People that live on the Northside typically have to kill themselves. If you live on any other part of town...the neighborhood thugs will take care of all the killing.

Cmon guys, let's not scare him away. Previous posters have posted about Southtown, Tobin Hill (hit or miss), and Monte Vista. Alamo Heights and King William are also nice and in a convenient area (if you can afford it). That would be your best bet. The north side is nice but a bit cookie cutter (better for families).

Come on, we're trying to get more families to move to the south. Got enough lemmings on the north/west side.
