Midtown is home to the famous Warren Buffett – the Oracle of Omaha. The richest man in world bought a house in the Dundee-Happy Hollow Historic District for $31,500, noted as being Omaha’s first suburb, and he still lives there today, proof that this neighborhood has staying power. But you don’t have to be a billionaire to live here, just patient and resilient in finding an affordable apartment.
Apartments in midtown Omaha are affordable as well, with prices falling under $400 in some areas. Being so close to downtown has major advantages for those wanting to be near the action but also require a suburban dwelling. Enjoy the large open space of Hanscom Park, located near the southeast corner of Midtown. There is a fishing pond located in the middle of the park as well as significant changes in the elevation that add to the scenery.
Due to Midtown’s location, directly west of downtown, the area is easily accessible to the Metro Area Transit, or MAT. If you live and work in Midtown, the area is easily navigated on foot and by using the MAT.
