really cool places to live, especially for the millennial.
Generally very nice area, with a few rough pockets.
Good restaurants, bars, shopping. Very walkable area.
Home to everything from bungalows to multi-million dollar riverfront estates.
Some of the nicer areas (particularly those with the multi-families) were hit very hard by Irma. The worst flooding in Jacksonville was in 32207. Anything west of Hendricks in the San Marco area had high water or flooding. Make sure you do your due diligence.
Beware, the city is trying to buy properties in parts of 32207 due to the flooding from IRMA, so make sure you search for Lori Boyer, the council person and look up her stories if you are looking at investment properties. Otherwise, it’s a neat area, but it does have double-stack train traffic running through it and is very busy with FEC freight trains.
@Chris Carson for flooding, is that including to the south of Hendricks to the west of San Jose Blvd?
Does anyone know if the Flood Maps on the GIS will be updated and when?
I think that area fared better, the elevation is a bit higher as you go south. The area that got it worst was the part immediately south of I95 until where Hendricks and San Jose split.
@Chris Carson so you referring to River Oaks Park upwards.
How about 32204, 32205 – Riverside & Five Points?
Pm me and I’ll give you the rundown. Pretty much anywhere near the river had high water but the flooding was sporadic depending on a number of factors. Riverside/5 points had some areas that did get flooding but the majority of properties were fine because they are set back at least a few blocks from the water.
