    Apartments near Drake

    Anyone know any apartments that are close to the Drake campus that are decent? And what areas near it are sketchy? If you have places to avoid, that works too.

    East/northeast of Drake is sketchy as hell.

    West, North/northwest and southwest are fine.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    All areas by Drake seem sketch.

    Going from the stadium northeast to where the discus at the state track meet used to be didn't seem like the best neighborhood.

    Seriously?

    The neighborhood directly west of Drake (towards Roosevelt) is pretty nice. The northwest edge of the campus is Beaverdale. How anyone could find those areas sketchy is beyond me. If you go south, you're basically running into Ingersoll, which isn't bad.

    East of Drake, I'd absolutely agree.

    Some of the house style apartments to the south aren't too bad.

    I have a rental house south of the Drake area between Ingersol and the freeway. Very nice neighborhood and close to everything.

    If you started from the bottom then you are still there. Living in an apartment near Drake, that is.

    Re: Apartments near Drake

    Haha thanks. I was pretty sure there was one part that was rough and the others were pretty decent from what I'd heard my friends say.

    All I know about Drake the distance I lived from Jethro's would be directly correlated to my weight.

    My brother lived in some loft-style above the Planet Sub. Was a pretty cool apartment, at least when I would stop by...

    Re: Apartments near Drake

    east/SE/NE of drake is where the majority of shootings in dsm are, although those are rarely random, they are gang and drug related... all other directions of drake imo are fine, in fact down toward ingersoll is exceptional location wise. Generally just use discretion just like anything, if you wander around at 2am on a saturday night east of drake, you will find trouble real quick...
