In some ways Charlotte is behind, in some ways not. The music is behind, but there is always Satelite radio.
You should check out Myers Park. I wouldn't say the people there are behind.

PINK. I'd love to hear your opinions after you return from your investigation. We're from Seaford and are also considering a move to NC.

hey seaford, oceanside here!!! i grew up in seaford. pretty funny huh? where are you thinking of looking? we just came home. it's really beautiful and we really loved it. i think we're going to do this. going back this tuesday for another look before we put our house up for sale. just nervous of making such a big move with the changes, etc. but the people were so nice and friendly and fun. it's definitly so beautiful to. much nicer looking than new york. no garbage all over the streets, no dirt, smells good and it's very green. i think that all these posters are correct in saying that yes, it's different but if you embrace the south and their ways, you'll be just fine. i hope that's the case with me! wish us luck! plus i met a bunch of new yorkers to!

Read up, because it is as nice as Myers Park. Same area - close to uptown - best school district - near JCC (we are Jewish, too).

Plenty of Chic New Yorkers, cultured world travelers, and Bankers (CEO of Bank of America has $5mil home in Eastover), and nice families - prices start at $800k for 4 bed.

I would look at Lake Norman Huntersville, great commute, low crime, laid back atmosphere! Macaulay is a good neighborhood to start with.

My mother was from NY (Jewish) and we grew up in Miami, then moved to Charlotte. I thought she was going to go nuts. She has passed away, but would absolutely love it today! There is a strong Jewish Community but not necessarily do they live in one area. There everywhere...there everywhere! I have kids that go to school at Ardrey Kell...love it! Just depends what your hot buttons are. You really need someone who understands your concerns and "gets it." feel free to email me...

I moved from NBabylon NY about 13yrs ago. Between Myers Park, & Ardrey Kell, I would definitely take Myers Park. It is a very beautiful section of Charlotte, alot like the North Shore of Long Island (Brookville, Oyster Bay, Cold Spring Harbor etc..) Now as to Jewish communities, I couldn't answer that. The Jewish community is growing, but there are not many here (not like LI), I am catholic at first had a hard time locating a satisfying church when we moved here. Now a few more have been built, and it gets better each year. You will no doubt experience that as well. I live over by Lake Wylie, and I love the lake. Being from LI, the thing I missed the most was the ocean, which is why we choose to live by Lake Wylie. Hope that helps, welcome to Charlotte, it is definitely a culture change, not bad/or good, just different. Takes adjusting. PS-as to the shopping I don't see any differences. Resturants, now theres a difference. Not many mom/pop types. I miss alot of my seafood rest. along the shores of Long Island. Franchises everywhere. I am not sure about Kosher food either, but the supermarkets are getting more diversed too.

I am not Jewish, but I do know that the neighborhoods surrounding the JCC off of Providence road are packed with Jewish people! You often see the orthodox(? right word) Jews walking home around there.

I don't believe this link has been posted in this thread, but here's one to a Kosher market/deli. Great babka to be had there! I think my father told me they have it shipped from Brooklyn.

Gleiberman's Kosher Mart & Restaurant
