I'm moving to Fort Worth for work and I'd appreciate some suggestions of what neighborhoods to look in for apartments. My work is over by Harmon Field Park. I'm looking for a single bedroom apartment around 700-800. I'm willing to go up in rent to cut down on a long commute. I'm looking for somewhere near other 20-something professionals. I don't need swanky downtown nightlife (most suggestions I've seen have been trendy and pricey) , but I don't want to be surrounded by only families. Thanks in advance!

Harmon Field Park is just northeast of downtown. (Tarrant Regional Water District?) Your best options will honestly be something close to downtown, or along University Drive north of I30. There are a few older apartment complexes near the intersection of University and White Settlement that are decent. You might also consider finding a roommate so you could afford to live in West 7th...

Be careful going much further north or east from your work as the neighborhoods get sketchy pretty quickly.

I think you should check out the near southside neighborhood. That area has really cleaned up, and has a very good vibe. Here's a list of places for rent:

I would not recommend park commons. Not surrounded by a good area. East the fwy is terrible and west of the fwy is just "okay"

I would have agreed with you a couple of years ago, but I've been there recently and it has changed dramatically. Very happy to see the restoration of Magnolia street. I don't even like Fort Worth, but I'd live in this neighborhood, and not worry about my safety.

Magnolia where the restaurants are is fine but there are plenty of bad pockets surrounding that area. If original poster or anyone else wants more info on it just pm me. I work that area every night so I know it very well.

Thanks for all the suggestions! I'm planning on coming up with a short list of candidate locations and have a week after I get there to check them out, so I'll make sure to drive through the areas first to check them out.

west 7th .. all the places are pricey but there's a lot going on there.

western center blvd off i35. turn right to fossil creek or left; apts on both sides. cheaper than west 7th, new and safe and relatively easy commute to a lot of things
