The city is divided into four districts: Northeast, Southeast, Northwest and Southwest. The North and South are divided by Central Avenue (the old route 66). The East and West are divided by Broadway. Each area offers an range of varied housing options.
The Northeast Heights stretches from The University Of New Mexico to the foothills of the Sandia Mountians. The mountian boundry to the east and sandia Pueblo to the north limit massive developement. Some of the city's most affluent subdiviions lie within the area, including Sandia Heights, Tanoan, High Desert and Glenwood Hills. North Albuquerque Acres offers oversized lots and upscale homes.
The Southeast section of Albuquerque incorporates Kirtland Air Force base, Sandia National laboratories and the Albuquerque International Airport. Houseing develoments range from the well estalished Ridgecrest and Four Hills to refreshingly contemporary Willow Wood.
Perhaps the most diverse part of the city, secluded, rural properties surrounded by massive cottonwood trees characterize Albuquerque's serene North Valley. Across the Rio Grande atop the West Mesa are the city's mewest residential and commercial developments. Ventana Ranch was specifically developed as a smaller, family community desgined around two large parks and a trail system. At the same time, Paradise Hills and Taylor Ranch date back decades. Dozens of new home builders offer an extensive array of affordable housing possibilities.
Primarily an agricultual area, Albuquerque's South Valley offers residents rural living at an affordable price. Many homes are southwestern style and often include barns for livestock. The southwest heights offer many builders and subdivisions. Come closer to downtown and you will find Albuquerque's prestifious old country club neighborhood, lushly landscaped and quiet, it is widely considered one of the most desirable residential locations in the city. During the Christmas holidays, many of the home owners set out thousands of luminarias, creating beautiful displays for all to enjoy.
