Tx, all. Hm.
Christie, I was asssuming Dallas would be more expensive and also somewhat more crime-prone than FW. Are there walkable areas you are thinking of that are in my price range? You seem to have a neighborhood or two in mind. (Oh, and it is enormously helpful, whoever did this, that you named streets along with neighborhoods. The apartment-search tools online and the Walkscore site and basic things like Google maps are much much easier to use if I have street names. I don't know neighborhoods at all. So7 I have heard of before, as being the part of 7th St. that runs between downtown and the Arts District, but finding it on a map was hellacious. (These maps are like doing flyovers. I'm like a helicopter pilot who doesn't know which way Arlington is from downtown Dallas. Actually I have no idea if Dallas has a downtown, though I assume it must. I don't know if it's a downtown like FW's downtown or LA's, though.))
Bookstores. Stick me near a bookstore and a safe bike trail and i could be happy enough.
Identifying a bookstore from a helicopter is beyond my recons skills, alas.
Mmmph.
Maybe I will strike oil and move to So7 that way.
Or maybe I will dig a small hole in the ground and stare stupidly at the ants.

To SYWI;

You can click in the map to enlarge the map to street level. The
names of the street will appear.
Use the arrows in the legend to move left or right too.
You can click on a location, it will give you the restaurants or other amenity closeby.
click on one of those items to get a street view.

Thank you.

That seems to list currently listed apartments but not apartment complexes per se, is the only trouble I had with that. There have to be more apartment buildings on or around 7th St. than show there....


Eh. Maybe I should just ask: If I live at roughly 5000 S. Hulen St., will I have to shoot someone in self-defense walking my dog at 8 p.m. within, say, two years?

No, definitely not but just keep aware of your surroundings though as any normal person
would.
You may also be jogging close by the new tollway that will be impacting that area too.
Once you move down here, people will tell you personally of locations that they think
may be parts of town to steer away from. But during the daytime you should be good.

Ah, bless you, you added even more good links. Much thanks.

That is good about S. Hulen; because I have my eye on a couple of complexes down there. And while I am surprisingly dangerous to immobile paper silhouette targets, I really don't want to have to find out if I could shoot a person.
(I may be paranoid about the crime thing. I fully admit I am pretty spoiled by 20 years in New York City, which has considerably less crime per capita than Ft. Worth. And Dallas is downright terrifying -- although I suppose it's all location location location; these things usually are. Trouble is, I don't know the locations. :/)

Dallas does have several more walk able neighborhoods: Uptown, Oak Lawn (definitely in your price range) and the Village apartments. Dallas and Fort Worth are really no different in crime as long as you stay out of the bad areas of each city. And Dallas public transportation is much better than Fort Worth!

There was an additional poster from relocating from colorado inquiring about the same area.
You may want to peruse the other postings. She asked about a specific apartment complex
on Hulen that had good reviews on the apartment(s) she had selected.

The area south of I-20 has Hulen Mall; tons of restaurants and stores. Just North of I-20 along
the access road, you have the same thing, a strip shopping center with Home Depot a more shops. A branch of the Fort Worth public library is approx a 1/2 mile north of I-20 on Hulen.

Good Luck

Tx, I will look for the thread. I was looking at Hulen Hills and Southern Oaks, myself.
Actually, anyone have any off-the-top-of-the-head reactions on those two?
As long as I'm being annoying.

I found the thread that the apartments had good reviews on the internet.
