Looking for clean and well kept St. Petersburg or surrounding area neighborhood. I have been told that NE Petersburg has such neighborhoods and am looking for opinions. I do not care if it is rich, middle class, working class...just must have pride in homes. Thanks for feedback.

All of North St. Pete is fine. I don't care much for the Kenneth City area and the Haines Road corridor, but everything else is just fine. I used to live there and am there nearly weekly now as we make our way back. Best wishes.

Just FYI, technically only anything East of 1st St. North is Northeast. All of the true Northeast neighborhoods are extremely nice and well-kept, if a little pricey. However, there are very nice places all over St. Pete, and it's very hard to define one place in particular which doesn't have nice areas. The Old Northeast section, which is pretty much between 22nd Ave N and 38th Ave N, East of 9th St, is also very nice. There are many older "historic" homes there, many roads are brick, and it's very nicely kept.

I don't think you're going to lose when it comes to St. Pete. Especially if you come and have a look around, it will become very clear which areas would fit you best. The city of St. Petersburg is not all that large, so it shouldn't take you very long to make a trip around to all the neighborhoods and see what you like.

Good Luck.

Thanks for the information. I came down over Thanksgiving to purchase in Sarasota until I discovered St Petersburg! I looked in the Jungle Prada area...but am going to lower my sights since I have had to drop the price of my home with the state of the market.

I did find areas in St Pete that were not as nice, though. I would find a beautiful street and one block over it was a mess. Mind you, that was not the norm...but mostly in the middle off Tyrone, I think it was. I didn't go any further north than Shore Acres...I do plan to look around though.

Thanks for any advice you be able to offer. It is certainly appreciated!

I'm not familiar with Inlet Bay Apartments (probably because I've never needed to be), but the Gateway area is very nice and well-kept. I have not seen any "bad" parts of it. My sister lived near there for a few years, and we go there fairly often to shop at the Target and other stores on 9th street and 78th avenue. We also had a friend who lived in the Windjammer condos on Gandy Blvd. The only caution I would have is that Gandy Blvd. is extremely busy, so, if you're looking for quiet or suburban, try to find something at least a few blocks from it.

I've lived in the St. Pete area for a long time and I think it's important to know the elevation of a place before you buy. Some streets around here flood easily, and the "wake" from cars trying to get through can cause trouble. If you phone City Hall, they can probably give you the information.
