hi...
I am a single female college student and I have no vehicle.
Which means taxi and marta.

I am looking for an apartment in a safe neighborhood..

to me, unsafe is midtown and downtown ATL.

when I first moved here, I lived in Metropointe.. which, I think, is between Midtown and Bankhead. My friends said we lived "in the hood" (sorry I do not know these terms.)

I was terrified, and quickly moved out to an upscale community in Sandy Springs where breathing alone costs a few hundred bucks.

I need to move somewhere that doesn't cost thousands to live, but isn't... downtown.

I just moved here and I don't know my way around. I have to use marta to get around. So preferably not having to walk 30 minutes to get to marta or to a bus stop.

I know that not everywhere is safe, that is true for, well, everywhere.

I was thinking of moving around the Lindbergh area, but I don't know that area very well and I think it might be expensive, but it seems convenient..

Opinions? Flaming? Cuddles?
Thanks ....

What's your budget?
Do you prefer newer or older buildings?

I'm attending the Art Institute of Atlanta.

My budget is preferably less than 800/mo including fees such as water rates and trash pickup and pet rent.

I prefer newer buildings just because I have a fear of things collapsing, plus I like silence. I don't want to be able to hear people breathing next door.

I'd like to be within a few miles.

Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, around Perimeter Mall, Chamblee-Dunwoody.

I lived in this complex in 2003/2004. It was inexpensive, clean, quiet and less than one mile from Lindbergh station. There is a train nearby, but since it has on overpass there were never any late night blaring horns.

The complex is not new, but when I resided in my apt(directly across from the leasing office) they were well maintained. I hardly ever called maintenance. I had hardwood floors in both the living room and bedroom, a huge walk in closet and tiled floors in the kitchen and bath. The apts do not have central air, but my one first floor one bedroom was never hot even in the summer.

I could walk to the Publix at Peachtree Battle or the Home Depot on Piedmont.

There are quite a few older complexes on Peachtree Hills that are well maintained. Walk through the area before you discount it as the whole community (Peachtree Hills) is quite charming.

I know that complex; not new, but nicely updated and an easy walk to the Lindbergh MARTA station.
