I'm looking for a place to rent here in B'ville. Can anybody tell me what the neighborhood around NW B'ville is like? I'm looking at a house around Santa Fe, north of Tuxedo/Henley. Can anybody recommend a decent neighborhood that isn't too outrageously priced? Thanks!

Most of the area west of the tracks downtown is the higher crime area. The NW part is one of the older parts of town and is run down. Oak Park school is being closed and the kids bussed to the other side of town if that is an issue. A better area of town are the apartments out on Hazel & Madison (east side), people call them the Smurf apartments because they were/are blue colored. Other apartments are on Nowata Road/Hwy 60 east of 75. Some may be subsidized. Good luck.

I am looking for a house. I'm needing a fenced in yard or a yard where the landlord would allow me to fence in the yard. A little drive is fine if the house is nice. Most places I've looked at are either dirty or if they are clean, the neighborhood doesn't seem too great. Not having much luck! Thanks for the help!

You're welcome, try a property management place like McAnaw Realty, ask for Pat Poindexter, she may have some rentals or know who does. I'm fond of Osage County or the south central part near downtown. Check this site Friday afternoon, I kill time by garage sales and may see a sign somewhere.

What about Oak Park? I know the schools just closed there but besides that, is it a good neighborhood? I heard bad things about it but it wasn't a very reliable source.

From what I hear the police are looking at statioing one officer there all the time. I presonally would avoid anywhere west of downtown and Oak Park. Just my opinion, based on what I read in the papers and personal observations.

Oak Park used to by a nice place to live. I moved out 12 years ago due to the many drug houses we lived by. It has gone down hill further since then. That neighborhood is trashy and run down and scary. The few nicer homes out there are mostly ones that have owned their homes several years and problably wont ever get what their house is worth because of location. The east side of town is nice and quiet. I have heard that Ben from Ben's auto here in town rents houses. If that is true I would stay clear of him. He is a crook and will screw you every chance he gets.

You would be better off in Dewey or Nowata. Bartlesville slum lords are not subject to the rules, so you will be living in a pre flooded garbage can from 86 that has not been cleaned, and is really not fit for human habitation..
