Goodbye to the west side of town

21 posts in this topic

Well all, I know I haven't been active much lately. The past half year has been really busy.

This weekend, I have officially moved out of the west side of town. After living next to FSU for 5 years, I couldn't stand it anymore. I've got one more year of grad school, and I decided that I wanted to live it in peace. So......I am now living off E. Brevard Street and Miccosukee Rd. A MUCH nicer, quieter neighborhood.

I won't miss the west side of town. Here's what I won't miss:

Noisy, drunk, belligerent college students

Bums and other vagrants knocking on my door for money

The crime (although haven't been a victim, I hear about it way too much close to home)

Litter and garbage

I'll come out and say it.......I hate living among other college students (although I am one myself!). Granted there are few exceptions like the lovely people here on UP, but for the most part, they're noisy, trashy and rude.

That's my rant for now. :)

The only problem with the area you moved into are the high school kids parking/driving crazy. Other than that, beats the heck out of the campus area.

I commend you for lasting that long. We moved to Tallahassee sight unseen and had no idea what the area around campus was like. I was ready to move somewhere else after around 5 minutes at the lovely Forest Hills apartment complex.

I find that my disdain of all things FSU-related has greatly decreased since moving away from campus.

perhaps that explains why my "Seminole spirit" isn't as high as it once was?!

I hear you. I lived across the street from campus, and right near the strip, so it was loud here too, particularly Thur-Sat nights around 2:00 when the bars closed. Now Im a proud resident of the NE side of town, and I love it. The only noise I hear in the mornings or anything is kids on their swingsets or whatever, which doesnt wake you up in a bad mood like "F YOU" in the middle of the night.

^You all are very lucky... but the North East isn't the only place to find some peace in Tallahassee.

No, but dead north of the capital is where I found peace* for $370 a month. Gotta love it.

*by which I mean, traffic noises 24/7

You just have to know where to look. There are plenty of nice, older one or two bedroom apartments and du/tri/quadplexes around. My sister's moving into a 2 bed/1 bath off Park for less than $500 a month.

My place is actually $365/month, by myself, no roomates.

Poonther, to be more specific about my location, I am on E. Brevard between Talaflo and Terrace streets. If you ever see someone walking down the street to the bus stop on Miccosukee, it's probably me :)

^Good price jpl02! That location puts you about 4 blks from me and it puts you in the middle of Old Town, great neighborhood, just beware of all those crazy catholics coming out of Blessed Sacrament at all times of the day. You know they've been drinking (communion.) :)

FF, is your sister moving in on Park between Franklin and Broward? And you live directly on Monroe? If you don't mind answering those questions, if so I understand.

Where exactly is the stop on Micco.? At Brevard? I walk that street a lot and I just can't remember where it is.

Well, I don't want to say for my sister, but that's the area. And yep, I'm right on Monroe. Do we know each other?

Howdy, neighbor. If you like hotdogs and beer, stop by on the 4th after 2 or so.
