47710 is a somewhat wide area. I think it stretches from the northern city limits all the way downtown along First Ave. Generally fine area north of Diamond Ave. South of Diamond is not too bad, though there are some neighborhoods that are not as great. I am pretty sure Deaconess Hospital is in 47710; the neighborhood right around there is not terrible, but not great. There is a Target on First Ave and Buena Vista; I worked there for a few years while attending USI. There are several grocery stores along First Ave north of Diamond. For that part of Evansville, First Ave is the main drag; library branch, movie theater, fast food, mini golf, etc. If you are into mall shopping or department store shopping, you will have to drive to the east side. No music stores on First Ave aside from what Target sells.

I knew a few people that lived at North Park Apartments off Mill Road. They are nice enough. There are some apartments right behind a Target off Buena Vista that one of my co-workers lived in. He didn't have a car, walked to Target everyday.

When I lived in Evansville, I used Insight. Most of the people I still keep in touch with in Evansville use Insight still. I never had a problem with them. WOW! is another cable choice, but I have zero experience with them.

I heard good things about Kenzi, but I am not familiar enough with the complex to say much more than that. They are very close to North Park Apartments, it is a generally good area.

Whole Foods, Trader Joe's; none of that exists in Evansville. There is a food co-op, River City Food Co-op; aside from that you are at the mercy of Schnuck's and Wesselman's. Louisville, Nashville, St. Louis, and Indianapolis are going to be your closest big cities. When I lived in Evansville, I traveled to Nashville, Louisville, Cincinnati, and Indianapolis a lot.

Nashville and Louisville are the easiset drives from Evansville. Indianapolis and Louisville have Whole Foods; not sure about the other places without Googling. I would imagine STL and Nashville do.

I've had cable/phone/HSInternet from WOW (formerly Sigecom) for eight years. Only significant outage was during the ice storm last winter.

With 47710 general rule of thumb is that the area gets more affluent the farther north you go.

I could be mistaken, but I think I heard Whole Foods is opening a store over at the Lloyd and Burkhardt.

Just an update for anyone who is interested.

I also can not believe I forgot to mention Elbert's over on the east side. It is a nice little natural food store.

have not heard of Whole Foods. As bad places stay away from the west of US 41 and south of Diamond AVE.

I was mistaken, it is not Whole Foods but The Fresh Market that is opening in Evansville.

New organic grocery chain coming to Evansville - 14 News, The Tri-State's News and Weather Leader-
