(I come in peace tampa folks, I'm not a cannibal zombie)I currently live in Miami and make 40k a year. The company I work for might be relocating to Tampa some time in the future. I live in West Miami and pay 1k for a dilapidated dump of an apartment with more zoning violations that I don't know what.

The job is on W La Salle street and 40 something avet if I recall (Don't have access to exact address,left it at work)

My questions are the following. Is this job in a good neighborhood? Is it residential, industrial, suburban, or inner city? I need to be no more than 15 miles away, max, from work.

What would be the equivalent in the Tampa area to something like say, the Kendall suburbs in Miami, Westchester, or something similar. I'm looking for something not quite suburban but not quite metro. Basically somewhere with apartments and relatively safe.

I've heard that Tampa rent is cheaper than Miami, by how much I'm not sure. I'm also single with no pets, and no children so I'm pretty low maintenance. I've never been to Tampa so I'm not quite sure where to even start, I figured this might be the place to start. Thanks for any help, tips, opinions etc in advance, I'd really appreciate it.
