Look into The Canyons apartments off of Bryant Irvin & River Park Drive. There are 5 or 6 apartment complexes on that stretch of road. They are nice and quite. Very close the Waterside and Clearfork which are two nice new shopping/restaurant areas.

Those are some old apartments. They were probably built in the 60s-70s judging by the architecture. I'd worry about upkeep issues, such as mold and bugs, in buildings that old. The area isn't horrible, but it's right off I-30, and since the complex has gates, I'd bet car break-ins are fairly common.

Seriously, if that's all you're finding in your budget, look at getting a roommate.

That is a MUCH better neighborhood than the others you've posted. Cityview can be a bit of a drive form downtown, but it is safe and has lots of restaurants and retail nearby.

see getting a roommate could land me in the same spot, just with someone else in what you texans consider the ghetto.

well i dont know the area and havent visited so im looking from 1300 miles away. Ive lived in some shady areas in pittsburgh before so im not scared of crime, but id like to avoid it.


any complexes yall recommend then? commute wont be an issue to me as traffic in texas is nothing compared to the dc area.

i guess im not too picky about new or old, given i lived in apartment building built in the early 1900s. i just want safe and relatively inexpensive for now. i say rent upto 1000 and thats not including utilities because i want to build up some cash.

The Cityview complexes or the ones in the Fossil Creek area are pretty decent. You could do a lot worse. That Calmont complex looks pretty dated.


Unless you already know someone, I would steer clear of rooming with someone you don't know. In fact, I would live in some pretty sketchy areas before I would shack up with a stranger. Having a locked front door or even a gated fenceline in between me and someone with bad intentions is decent first line of defense.

Great, but probably over your budget. You might sneak into something around the edge of downtown on the Southside or west side but that will still be tricky.

You're going to learn about this really quickly. DFW traffic can be a real bear, just like DC traffic. We have 7.5 million people living in an area the size of the state of Connecticut, and unlike DC, our public transit options are very limited. Commute times in DFW can be very lengthy if you live too far away from your work.
