I live in Charlotte right now. The south of the city is very safe. By Ballantyne, Rea Rd, Providence Rd, South Park, Elizabeth, and Dilworth. Large parts of the city are crime infested though but it was getting better. I did get robbed twice back when I lived near UNCC though.

Moved from LI to Indian Trail almost 6 yrs ago. Love it here and wish we had moved here sooner.

I'm in the same situation as MovingLItoNC...
We are also looking into Relocating from LI but to an area in Union County. I'm a bit concerned over the violent crime stats for Charlotte. Is this a common concern?

It's only a common concern when the TV stations want to boost local news ratings. The Charlotte metro area as a whole is no different than Nassau/Suffolk. There are good areas and bad everywhere.

There was a chart a few years back that showed that the Nassau/Suffolk region was one of the largest sources of transplants to the Charlotte metro area.

There was this article in the Charlotte Observer today on how Suffolk County "sent more residents to the area about 2,000 annually than any county outside the Carolinas."

There is an in and out bound migration tool here. Not sure of the accuracy of the data.
