$650 can get you a one bedroom in a decent neighborhood. When I was doing apartment living I always budgeted at least $750, but with all the great specials out there, you can find something for less.

So am I correct in assuming that an apartment for $650.00 or more will put me a nice neighborhood?
For a one bedroom, yes, that amount will give you lots of options

Welcome to Charlotte! I know it is a really new concept for some people, but the vast majority of us here could care less what color our neighors are - we just want you to be a good neighbor!

You know, I really think this new mindset will eventually spread to more and more places - But in my opinion, it exists here now in Charlotte for several reasons.

1. So many people here (much more than the national average) are truly faith-filled - whether their faith is expressed in a church, synagogue, temple or under the stars in the woods. This faith teaches us respect for the fact that we are all created equal.

2. Many people have come here from somewhere else and are more motivated to make their new city a good place to live, so they become good neighbors themselves.

3. And as hard as this is to believe, if you take away the real racists of times past and present, underneath that many southern blacks and whites have always been on good terms, even treating each other like family for their whole lives.

My daddy was born and raised in New Orleans - you don't get anymore deep south than that. The day I used the "N" word for the first time ever, and worse yet, in front of a black family friend!, was the day I was spanked for the first time in my life.

But I digress! All of this is to really say, Charlotte is a place where people of all races and many different countries live - you could do a lot worse in chosing a new home city.

That's good info b/c we are planning to relocate that way sometime next year (Developers rule VA and their products are crappy) Plus we can come down that way debt free!

lovesmountains,
that last thing that you wrote makes me want to move down there even more, its good to see that people are that positive in Charlotte............But you fail to mention one thing that I am looking for, that I did not mention before and is very important to me............Please tell me they have a strong, good southern hospitality??; that the southern traditions on life are not forgotten, that's one part that I love about the south, you never forget where you came from

LoveMountains -I just really, really, really love you! You ae always so postive and consistently are always providing great and useful information to ALL. I am African-American, and I can say that when I was visiting Raleigh last month, everyone was genuinely very nice. What was even more surprising was the fact that young teenagers would hold the door for me and wait on me and not let it slam in my face and when I said thank you, they would say you're welcomed sir. I spent a lot of time in North Charlotte and it was very mixed and not all segreated like it is here in Chicago. It was a breathe of fresh air and just felt really great. Even a side trip to Wilmington, NC was amazing. Folks were soooooo friendly and helpful and thoughtful! I can't wait to get down to Charlotte for my visit this month and I am sure that Charlotte will embrace me. The reason why I am visiting Charlotte and considering it is because I believe it has a bit more to offer than Raleigh, but Raleigh is a great place as well. Lastly, I just wanted to say WE ARE ALL ONE and we are all stronger when we work together to live our best lives and be happy. Brii and Harding thanks so much for the zipcodes, very helpfu!
