Hey, I am starting to look into some housing down in the Fort Worth area. If I end up moving there I will be working for FWPD so I want to live in the city or very close to the city limits.

Are there any areas you recommend for a single male? I'm looking to rent or buy, depending on the area and my situation. I was looking at downtown however haven't been able to find much yet. I'd like to live near bars/restaurants/low crime, etc, but somewhere I can have a good active social life since I will be moving on my own from out of state, thanks.

Just west of downtown, along 7th street might be a good place for you.

There are both apartments and condos/townhomes along the W 7th corridor.

you don't give any budget limit--downtown has gotten pricey since it has been upgrading

If I am renting lets say less than $1,000 a month, and buying somewhere between 150-250k.

Depending on the size of the home, you could probably find a condo/townhome in that price range right in downtown near Sundance Square. Otherwise, I agree with the others... W. 7th, up and along to Camp Bowie, near UNTHSC, would probably work. Lots of younger professionals, grad and medical students in this area.

Default Downtown is pricey and noisy.

Along 7th looks like the place to be lately.

Check MLS rentals in TCU area: 76109; Cultural District: 76107; and Downtown: 76102. Some areas are better than others, of course, but I personally would stay in those zips for your criteria. I lived in 76109 about 7 years ago, and really liked the area (and TCU coeds). 76102 would probably be the most fun, but you can't, for example, jam out with your garage band in a high rise loft. The Cultural District (7th Street/76107) is like the best of both: closer to downtown with a possibility for a house/yard...
