Southtown is the main artists' community close to downtown. There's also Tobin Hill, Alta Vista which are close but not really walking distance to downtown. The new Pearl condos and other places along Broadway are also likely to invite artist types, but not cheap.

In Southtown, it'll vary. The newer buildings are going to be closer to $1000/month or more. There are lots of rentals in old historic homes converted to apartments. The cost varies substantially, as does quality. A friend had a rental recently for ~$600/month, 1 bedroom, nicely done. I've seen less but also less desirable. What's your price range?

Best thing to do is contact some local downtown realtors who will have some info on rentals. Also look at the CUrrent and SA Express-News for ads. Also check out the facebook page for Lavaca (not sure if King William or So Flo have their own pages).

You want the area around broadway, specifically the King William district (I think that's what it's called). Artsy, historic, quaint- sounds like what your want.

King William/Southtown is off Alamo Street, not Broadway.

Though there is a booming residential in the Lower Broadway area. Basically at the corners of Broadway and Grayson St.
