Hello all,

Where should I live, Moore or Norman? What are the good and bad areas of these two cities? I am looking for a one bedroom house for under $450. I will be working downtown and yes I know Moore is closer.

-Thank you

My gut reaction is: live in Norman and bypass Moore--there are fewer tornados. Actually, they are both nice towns. Norman is a college town with lots of good people watching and good people. Moore is full of nice people, but has less of a well established identity since it is a bedroom community for OKC. The commute is not that much different either way. Maybe an extra 15 minutes if coming in from Norman.

People watching - ehh. You mean hot chicks - right????

My main concern is safety from other people. I don't want gangsters staring me down, drug addicts scoping me out, section 8 people living next door or in the same apartment complex.

Where in the world are you coming from?! Oklahoma is not like that normally, unless you really work at finding the unsavory parts. Check out the neighborhood, talk to potential neighbors, and ask the police about any area crimes before you sign a lease. You'll quickly determine which spots are for you.

I just moved to Norman and absolutely love it. I am coming from Memphis, TN, so it is totally a different atmosphere for the better. I don't really think there is any bad part of Norman. Any crime they have it is nothing compared to Memphis! LOL

Thanks. I was trying to avoid staying in a motel while I apartment hunt. This is why I am asking these questions. But I am sure I have to do that in order to be sure of living in a safe area.

Thanks for the post. Why did you move to Norman and not Moore?

There's a Value Place just south of Indian Hills on the east side of I-35 - Value Place may be the name. Might be a good place while you are looking.

In Moore on SW 19th Street and Santa Fe there are two apartment complexes around a golf course. See apartment homes in moore, oklahoma
But there is usually a pretty good waiting list for these.

Norman is larger than Moore, and because it's a college town, there's always stuff going on.
