Dear all,

I find this forum great! I'm moving to San Jose to work, my company is in North First street. I'm looking for an one bedroom apartment (< $1400) in the walking distance (say 1-2 miles) from the Light Rail so that I don't have to drive to work.

Right now I'm considering apartment complex, but my biggest concern is the safety of these regions, since I find no information on this issue.

Could you please provide me with your comments on the following neighborhoods:

1. South of San Jose City College
2. East of Morgan Park
3. North of Los Gatos Creek Park
4. Corner of W Hamilton and San Tomas Expy

Of course, any other idea and comment on where to rent a decent one bedroom apartment are welcomed.

Thank you so much,

VTA light rail goes to Mountain View too. I'd consider that area as well based on the price range you posted.

South of City College isn't too bad, for the most part. It's right by Valley Medical Center which is a pretty busy hospital. Not sure about the other areas.

You should be able to get a decent 1BR apartment for $1400 a month. San Jose is generally a safe city...even the bad areas are relatively safe compared with most big cities.

There are a whole bunch of new apartment complexes on or near North 1st street, which are right on the light rail line. If I were you, I'd look at those complexes before anything else.

San Jose City College is an ok area but nothing special. W. Hamilton & San Tomas Expressway is safe, but the apartment complexes around there are kind of blaaaahh, architecturally speaking. Also the commute from Hamilton/San Tomas, while not bad compared with what a lot of people do...would not really allow you to take light rail to work.

I'm not sure about those other areas you mentioned.
