Im currently single, pregnant and a mother of a 2 year old. I just dont want to live here anymore I want to start over completely. I dont know anyone in San Antonio but I chose it because I already work for JP Morgan Chase and I can transfer my job.

How is the area as far as bi racial kids go? Ive never been in the south so I want to make sure my children arent discriminated against. They are black/white.

Are any of you familar with Chase in the area? Is that a good place to work, I know it is in Columbus but what about San Antonio?

What about the cost of living? What does a normal 2 bedroom apartment usually run? And how much is a gallon of gas there at the moment?


Thanks guys

Both Chase centers are located in very nice and safe areas. One is on the far west side in Westover Hills and the other is on the far north side in Stone Oak. Stone Oak will be more expensive and more traffic.

FYI you don’t need to worry about any issues with race in either area.

I paid $3 for a gallon of gas this morning at Costco. It was $3.05 at Valero across the street. Guess there was a reason I noticed the price this morning (I was going to respond to your post). If you look up apartments in the Stone Oak (I live in this area) you will want to search zip codes 78258, 78260. I love this part of town. I know other parts are cheaper and people complain about traffic but once in the area you never have to leave. I leave the area for work and that is it for the most part. There are lots of new apartments that have been built so I am sure there are different price ranges. Also new apartments that have been built on Bulverde Road which is also in the area you can consider if you are at the Chase Stone Oak location.

San Antonio is more southwestern than southern, imo. There is racism in every city, but your family should be fine in most parts of San Antonio. I used to work with this one guy who had half black half Mexican children. They were the only black students in a predominately Hispanic school on the south side. His daughter would come home crying because she was constantly being called the n-word. I told him he chose the worst part of town for his children. I'm black and never had any race issues attending school on the NE side, but I was called the n-word at a predominately Hispanic school on the near north side. It's best to live in ethnically diverse areas.

I'm white, wife is black, 2 biracial daughters, we haven't ran into any issues here.
We live on the far west side (Westcreek - near Westover Hills) which is pretty diverse due to all the military.

That said, my oldest niece goes to South San and has run into the same issue as L210.

As stated above, Chase has 2 locations. You should find out which one you will be working at before you try to do anything else. The 2 areas are both good areas, but they are very different.
