Right so south of I-4 would be the historic Ybor district, north of i-4 is VM Ybor, I guess technically to 26th ave, most people would call Ybor to about Columbus maybe a block or 2 north of it, to me 23rd ave is College Hills.
If you want to rent in one of the upscale townhouses or apartments built during the boom then yes they go upwards of 1k, but there is plenty rentals on private homes that go for under $600. This is the historic Ybor district I am talking about.
To the OP, other than a bus line that runs along Nebraska that doesnt put you anywhere near the city or employment centers, I would describe that area as suburban geto, some run down groceries stores, a few gas stations, churches, tire/rim shops and weekly rate motels thats about all the amenities you are looking at. I think you are going to have a hard time finding something that is central to everything riding public transportation, Tampa is so spread out and the public transportation so limited. You really need to know where you are working at and go from there.

I know. I agree. The address she/he gave is a horrible area, but I thought if Ybor was the area they were interested in, I would give a little insight to the area.

Too far in my book. Try south Tampa.

For the same reason a small apartment in a 1880s building in Greenwich Village, NYC is thousands.
Uniqueness, one of a kind, historical, desirable.
