I am in the process of relocating to the Bangor area. We are coming up in a week to find a place to live. There are many places for rent all over Bangor so I am trying to narrow down our options. Are there any neighborhoods or areas in Bangor that are really awesome or stand out for any reason? Or areas to stay away from? I am not picky, I would just like something safe, cute, and not out in the middle of nowhere. New or old. I would love to have walking/bike access to stores and stuff. I will be commuting Orono for school by bus or car about 5 days during the week.

I will take any advice I can get.

Thanks!

As far as nice neighborhoods, the west side, around west broadway is nice. As you get closer to main street, it gets a little bit rougher. Little City is nice, with older homes built in the 1800's. The "Tree streets" on the east side, closer to Stillwater are nice as well. At least these are areas that are pleasant to drive through.

Husson Ave has somenice apt complex's, it is pretty quiet on that street. My mother used to live there and sometimes I forgot we were in the city when I visited. You can walk down to the Kenduskeag Stream if you like to walk or bike. And it is near the high school and some walking trails and like 5 minutes to the interstate. Husson College is there too

Default eastside?

Thanks for all of the advice. I have seen a lot of affordable places on the eastside. Sometimes too affordable. Is the east side nice?
