Have any of you visted the area? I am going down there on the 15, so I will figure alot out then. What area codes to you mean by south side and how far is it from the school? I like the looks and stats on Jacksonville except it has high crime rates, you can only tell so much on the internet though, I am looking forward to a visit. Have you found any particularly interesting websites on Jacksonville or the school? The google site was real helpfull.
I went down a couple of weeks ago. The Southside area is on the east side of the St. Johns River south of Beach Blvd and west of University of North Florida. It is a great area in terms of neighborhoods and proximity to supermarkets, restaurants, etc.
The best thing I have found is the relocation guide from Jax Chamber of Commerce. It includes a current apartment guide which you can then check against the google map thing.
The crime aspect worries me too. I have been reading the Jax Times Union site every day at www.jacksonville.com and there is always a murder or something. Statistics say that you are more likely to be killed by someone you know, so I'll just keep a close eye on my wife once we move and I should be ok.
