I know it's kind of a "sketchy" area right now but are there safe areas to considering renting in the arts district? Any particular complexes?

It's been almost a year since I moved here from Boston and am loving it!

Okay, I'll bite...

What area is being promoted as the "Arts District" and by whom?

I don't know. What kind of rates are they charging?

Beyond some ecclectic taste for the bizarre it is not a nice place to stay. You'd have to be pretty desperate to stay down that way.

But, it might be exciting too!

It's the area from around east Fremont going towards the Stratosphere. The City of Las Vegas is promoting it. Mainly through First Friday and some other small events.

It may not be much of an "arts district" compared to most large cities but it's trying to get there one small step at a time. I'd love to live there and really see it happening.

Unfortunately though it really isn't a very good area at all. But I was hoping someone could recommend someplace that is a bit more ready for the eclectics to move in.

If you're smart, you'd avoid that area like the plague.

I am interested to see how the city-data folks answer this. It's an area we are considering.

I like that area. It's called 'Naked City'. I heard it got that nickname because all the showgirls used to live in that area and frequently did some nude sunning.

Newport Lofts are nice but I would avoid most apartment complexes in favor of renting a house. There are some nice older homes and I'm sure lots of rentals in the area.

You could consider Soho or Newport...

Or the Ogden which is going for $1100 for a 1 BR to 1850 for a three BR.

There are a couple of others.

If you want a house I would get off into Park/Huntridge. The Naked City itself is a little much. Normally I think "naked city" refers to the area west of the Strat...

There are still old homes tucked in between the law offices in Downtown Las Vegas. Search around the area of the Mormon compound. The high rises Dowtown is also an option.

Dowtown has improved quite a bit, with Zappos moving in, it will definitely bring in much needed new blood in the area. By the way, Insert Coins which just opened recently next door to Vanguard is a great hang out. Fremont East has improved immensely with all these new businesses opening.
