Hi everybody,

I was wondering if you know about the Ingra St.at 15 ave. section of town. Is this a good or bad part of town? I have a very good chance of getting a job with KTUU, and I will be moving from Phoenix. I don't think I'll be driving, so I may have to walk to work and back, and my shift ends around 1030 pm. Anything you guys can give me info wise, would be great!

Thanks in advance!

You best get a car and find a different part of Anchorage to live in. You'll need a vehicle unless you just want to be a cave dweller. Lot's of stuff to do and places to go but you can't get to them on the bus.

Ingra St.at 15 ave. area is Fairview, which is not ideal, but it's fine. I lived there just a few years ago with a toddler, and never once felt threatened walking around late at night. It's mainly families, from what I saw. There is a family with chickens, and a rooster you will hear. I miss that, actually.

Anchorage is very difficult to do without a car, but it's doable. In the late spring/summer/early fall you can ride a bike, and plenty of people get around on bikes with winter tires in the winter {wimps need not apply!} Buses run very VERY limited times and routes.

Have you lived in cold climates before? Coming from Phoenix, I mean. Walking at night in January and February, during a cold snap will be pretty much misery on a stick.

You definately do not want to live near 15th and Ingra. While it may be a fine place to work, it is one of the higher crime areas in Anchorage, and all the major traffic going through Anchorage moves through either the 15th/Ingra or 15th/Gamble intersection. A mile east, south, or west of that intersection would be an improvement.

Just my opinion, but 15th and ingra is really close to the worst area of town. Fairview east of gambell is the worst part of town from someone who's lived in every part of this town. Worse than any part of mountain view.

anything west of ingra is much better.

don't get me wrong, it's nothing compared to what you'll see in bad parts of big cities, but Fairview is drug central for anchorage

I thought KTUU was on Tudor just off of Old Seward. If that's the case and you're considering an apartment in Fairview, you'd have a considerable walk in the winter. Keep looking.

well i think that KTUU was on Tudor by Lake Otis.... maybe i am wrong i havent been there in awhile... but if you plan on living anywhere and you are looking for something cheap i would look for something on gov hill... there is a bus system that is really nice... i use to use them daily... it never bothered me except in the winter and the buses were late... i would suggest getting a car... you can get a car off of [URL="http://www.craigslist.com"]www.craigslist.com[/URL] there are some nice cars on there for pretty good deals.... and you dont have to make payments and such.... good luck i hope that you find what you are looking for
