What's More Important: Apartment or Neighborhood?

What's More Important: Apartment or Neighborhood?

101609survey-01.jpgIt seems that spacious affordable apartments simply don't exist in my neighborhood of choice. A decision is going to have to be made and I just can't decide what's more important--the perfect apartment or the perfect neighborhood?

I can either, a) move in with the boyfriend who has a huge, amazing apartment (at a very decent price) while sacrificing a great neighborhood; or, b) move two households into a less-than-ideal apartment in my favorite part of town. What would you do Apartment Therapy readers? Have you had a similar experience?
