My husband and I are looking at a property in Stone mountain area. Again, how safe and convenient living in Stone Mountain area? We are semi-retired couple with no children. School is not a concern to us, but convenience to shops, hospital is. Any advice? Thanks a bunch.

It is so difficult to respond to such a generic request but I'll try.
Stone Mountain extends from Tucker to Lithonia and over toward Lilburn/Snellville.

There are 'better' parts--Snellville area, IIRC and there are parts near E.Ponce de Leon/N-S Hairston/Stone Mt Industrial Blvd that have significant crime--whatever you prefer? If it's my dime I want the best/safest area possible--that is me.

Is Stone Mountain a nice place to live

or

Lithonia, Conyers, Stone Mountain, Covington, or Gwinnett County

Glad to help. I'm still not certain where this property is but there are some nice subdivisions in that area. Lilburn---Parkview High School--one of the better schools academically.

Did you see this Google item?

CLOSING ATTORNEY SENTENCED TO 30 YEARS IN PRISON IN $20 MILLION MORTGAGE FRAUD
The residential properties so purchased by MCFARLAND and her co-conspirators were primarily located in the Mountain Oaks, North Shore, Southland and Waters Edge subdivisions in Lithonia and Stone Mountain, and in Sugar Hill, Snellville, Decatur, Clarkston, Fayetteville, Douglasville, Fairburn, and Griffin, Georgia. These properties were then resold, often on the same day, at artificially inflated prices, using the proceeds of the resale to pay for the initial purchase, a practice commonly referred to as “flipping.”

During this conspiracy, MCFARLAND owned and operated The MCFARLAND Law Firm, located first at 4820 Redan Road, Stone Mountain, Georgia, and later at 900 North Hairston Road, Stone Mountain, Georgia. While acting as agent for title insurance companies and the closing attorney for various lenders, MCFARLAND caused false HUD-1 Settlement Statements to be signed certifying that she received borrower down payments and disbursed loan proceeds as reflected on the statements,




This sort of thing happens to 'the best of us'--corporations--can't live with them but at times I would like to try living w/o them.
