I noticed you had gotten no responses . . . your question is too broad. What in particular do you wish to know more about?

The crime stats are out there - just google - and there are literally thousands of threads that discuss crime and neighborhoods.

So what plans do you have for moving here . . . retired? out of work? entrepreneur? Can't very well advise you on neighborhoods til we know your requirements and price range.

Have you ever spent time here?

I lived in Cleveland & Columbus(Dublin) and just in general can say that crime in CLT (and homeless) seems much less than those OH cities.

Loved your talk show!

If you want to find out about crime in Charlotte, the CMPD have a terrific site. Community Crime Information System. You put in an address, date range and some other criteria and get an idea of what goes on in that area.

As far as homeless people, I think they are less of a problem here than other cities. They are around and sometimes ask for money but at least we don't have one sleeping at every storefront.
