About Where should I live in the St. Petersburg area

Where should I live in the St. Petersburg area?
I will be transferring jobs to St. Petersburg, FL next summer. I will be working on 4th Street N. How far is too far to drive? If my price limit is $250k, where can my money buy the nicest home? I don't want too far of a drive, 30 minutes or less would be great.

Answer 1 :
Right now is an excellent time to buy a house here. I'd look for places in Old Northeast, or in the area between 4th Street and 34th Street, anywhere from about 16th Avenue North to 62nd Avenue North. The Crescent Lake area is beautiful, some lovely homes in a nice neighborhood, and it's not far at all from 4th. (As a bonus, there's a fantastic lake and park right there. Steer clear of parts of the city south of Central Avenue, the area from Central to about 35th Avenue South, from 4th Street all the way to about 45th Street, is a higher crime area, so even though a house on 15th Avenue and 12th Street might look like a great bargain, it's not. There's a realty site here that lists some of the neighborhoods of note: http://www.floridarealestate411.com/Cities/st-petersburg.php and another: http://www.davidpricerealtor.com/stpeteneighborhoods.html
