Where to live if you work at the WK Pierremont on Youree Drive? I belive that's in S not in BC, but i read here that SE S is an ok part of the city? Are there nice apts in the area? Are there homes under $300k but not the McMansions built lately? I am thinking about a nice older neighborhood, with smaller houses and safe-safe-safe. After I read everything here on SBC, safety is my number one concern. So, what do you guys say?
Thank you.

It is in Shreveport. A safe nearby neighborhood is University which is between Bert Kouns and 70th. Avoid the apartments (Town South I think they are called) that are near the corner of Kouns and Youree. Broadmoor which is is nearby has fairly safe and cheap houses. The best neighborhoods in all of Shreveport are in the Ellerbee area. But you ought to consider Bossier City because it is MUCH safer than Shreveport. There is a nice subdivision in Bossier right over the bridge. Plantation Trace is the name, I think.

Smile You're in the right location

Where your job is located is in the area in which your needs/desires describe. Broadmoor is right in this area. Yes ma'am there are apartments and affordable homes in that prive range, venture down N Youree keep going until you get to where the construction is, I want to say that is around Southfield. You should be able to find the neighborhood you are looking for. It has a vast array of older, very nice affordable homes and the neighborhod is nice. S youree where your job is located, past LSUS, I actually live here in a nice condo that we got for little to nothing! Good luck in your search but this area of town should have what your looking for with convience to your work, entertainment, etc...

There are several apartment complexes very near WK Pierremont on Millicent Way. There are a lot of younger people living there (it's across the street from LSU-S), but the apartments are nice enough. My husband lived at Rain Tree when he was going to LSUS. We live sort of on the edge between Broadmoor and South Highlands and I highly recommend either of those neighborhoods. There is also a residential area south of WK Pierremont (maybe a mile away?) on the east side of Youree that has older but nice houses that you could get for 150K (at most probably). My friend's mom lives there and it is a very peaceful, nice, and safe neighborhood. Also nearby are newer gated communities (Brunswick Place, etc.) that have new construction and the houses are generally in the 250-300K range. If that's too much, though, I'd check out Broadmoor, South Highlands, and that community just south of LSUS to the east of Youree (sorry, can't remember the neighborhood name... my friend's mom lives on Pomeroy if that helps, though). The side of town that you are talking about is a nice area and you should have no safety concerns. I've lived in Shreveport for seven years (and I was VERY paranoid when I moved here) and I have NEVER had a problem (even in the 'bad' neighborhoods where I have taught elementary school).
Good luck and let me know if I can help you in any way.

Heh. While I agree with what you're trying to say, most people who live in south Bossier and the neighborhoods such as Platation Trace, while working in south Shreveport, will tell you how bad their drive to/from work sucks. Those people shouldn't even have a "commute time" because of their close proximity to work, but unfortunately until something is done to alleviate traffic they have some of the longest commute times in the area.

Southeast Shreveport is extremely safe and I would highly recommend the poster look at neighborhoods out Youree Drive, north of LSU-S. There is plenty out there, and a lot of homes can be found for under $300,000.

Good luck!
