I'd like to know too. We're moving in June, and it looks nice from here, but I'm curious. Hope someone can help.

Yes, Bethany and Warr Acres are quite safe. I live about 3 minutes from either one right off of sixteenth and Macarthur. I love both towns and am hoping to be able to buy a house in one or the other. The schools there are good too.

16th and Macarthur, that's a war zone isn't it? If your going to move to Bethany or Warr Acres stay north of NW 23rd and west of Muller St.

I disagree w/that intersection as a "war zone"- Zillow has neighborhoods around there w/home prices in the mid-high 100's. You can really tell alot about that area by using the Zillow website (or iPhone app) and seeing what home values are. Surprising you'll find some expensive (over 200k homes) just south of Bethany. Anything east of MacArthur towards Portland (south of 50th) I'd try to avoid.
Bethany itself along 39th expressway is pretty safe- full of nice college students from SNU and retirees who have lived there for decades.
If you're looking for a small home (under 1200sq ft) there's some great deals right around SNU on some historic ones (many restored). It's a more walkable area as well near SNU if that's something you're looking for.

No it is not a war zone.We have lived here ever since we moved from Florida almost a year and a half ago and really like it. My daughter loves Putnam City West High School. Her special education teacher is probably the best she has ever had. My husband has walked to church and I have walked to the neighborhood market and neither of us has feared for our safety or that of our girls.

Actually, we have put in an application at an apartment complex in Bethany, not far from the high school that our daughter attends. If it all goes well we should be at our new address in Bethany on April 1st. My plan for 2011 is to buy our first house either in Bethany or Warr Acres as long as my girls can remain in the same school district. My fifteen year old is in special ed since she has learning disabilities and my thirteen year old girl is a low functioning autistic who is homeschooled. When she is eligible for high school she will need to be enrolled part time at least for the transition program.

Another thing I am thrilled with in this area is the number of thrift stores in this area.I am a thrift store addict so I am in heaven with all these great stores to choose from.

I've lived in Bethany my entire life and there are a lot of nice neighborhoods. There are a lot of nice houses around the SNU campus and lot of people have are buying homes and renovating them, or tearing them down to build new ones. There are a lot of nice neighborhoods to chose from in Bethany but I would recommend Brownsville. There are a lot of areas to chose from but Brownsville in my opinion is the best. Hopes this helps!
