You will feel right at home in Charlotte. Charlotte is full of New Jersey and New York transplants.
Soon Charlotte will be renamed New Charlotte

We welcome transplants but we are NOT that accommodating!

Yes, I liked it very much. The grounds were clean and manicured, as were the hallways and common spaces. The pool was immaculate and open till dark. The fitness center and computer lounge were always "working" and the staff could not have been nicer. I would recommend it to anyone.
You can get a $100 Visa gift card from "rent.com " if Post tells them you rented because you heard about them on thier web site. It was very easy.
Good Luck.

We've lived both in Huntersville and now live in Ballantyne and def. like Ballantyne more. It's closer to all the stuff we utilize in Charlotte like Southpark, friends, Dr's, business's we use etc. We felt very isolated in Huntersville from Charlotte and it was a pain always having to drive into Charlotte for stuff.

Depends on where in Charlotte. Huntersville is much closer to Uptown and easier to get to as well. If you live in Huntersville you really have no reason to go to Southpark. There is North Lake Mall and every store you can think of either coming to North Lake or already in Huntersville.

Northlake the same as Southpark...oh no..not even close. You will not find high end stores at Northlake like Tiffany, Louis Vuitton, Kate Spade, Jack and Jill childrens clothing, Neiman Marcus, etc. Doesn't even compare. Yes, huntersville may be closer to uptown but if you like to shop/dine like we do and want to be near everything in southpark, we chose Ballantyne. Plus we hated having to travel via the interstate from Huntersville all the time. It was a nightmare.

Not really too concerned about shopping since my wife and I don't shop at high end stores. I am more concerned about good schools and my commute. thanks for your reply.

If you can afford $1300/month for rent, you will not want to be shopping in Southpark. Nice area and shopping but very upscale. Like someone said above, where you live is based on your lifestyle and needs.
