I was born in Pine Bluff, grew up in Little Rock. These two cities are consistently ranked among the worst in the nation for crime. Is there something in/around PB that's attracting you, or are you just looking at the map and circling some places that look interesting? Is there an area 'type' that you're looking for (like more urban, or more rural) because there might be some better suggestions for you than Pine Bluff.

Pine Bluff is one of the worst places in Arkansas. Not even as nice as Denham Springs.

If I had a choice of places I'd want to live in Arkansas...it would be pretty far down on the list.
Crime is a really big issue and I bet your son would be pretty bored down there.
Is there some reason you want to move to Pine Bluff?
Have you looked into Bryant, Benton, or even Hot Springs?

My dear
Don't move to Pine Bluff. The city is backwards and dull and crime is bad. Consider Hot Springs or Camden or Star City. I lived there for 9 awful years. It is the dullest place on the planet

What's wrong with Denham Springs? You'd best think long and hard about moving to Pine Bluff. It will only be a mistake. Nothing in this city for you; the mall is about to close up, no shopping except Wal-Mart and it's usually out of most things. Stay away from Pine Bluff! Your child doesn't need to grow up in this gang infested town. Conway would be a nice town for you.

don't move to pb ain't nothin there but a college and walmart. there is one mall and nearly closed down. no jobs. ragedy , full of crime. it is a black city, which i am too. and i hate. ive been here 19 horrible years. you can go to the mall and see the same people at walmart soon as you leave the mall. the town is just that small. everyone knows everyone, crime is HORRIBLE. for it to be small, its ranked 2 in murders in all US cities. i would suggest you not move to pb.

I'm glad I read this, there Is an old house on 14th st that I was going to buy but after seeing the crime rates I've changed my mind. I would not feel safe alone while fixing the place. Thanks, Karina Von Watteville

It's called "crime bluff" by locals, DO NOT move there. I would recommend Monticello, Crossett, El Dorado. Inexpensive, and safe.
