I have to say that "most up and coming, but are still a bargain" is a fairly subjective criteria that needs to be balanced by your short term vs long term plans, and whether you are an investor or planning to live in the home. Are you going to be there 3 years, 10 years, 20 years? Resale potential really matters in your formula. What is your threshhold for safety, urban feel? What are your space requirements and what is your budget? These and many more factors that must be weighed, in addition to neighborhood, before someone can make an honest recommendation. I recommend you sit down with a good agent of your choosing, and do a deeper exploration.
