I know people say crime is bad up there, but look what happened about 5 miles from where I live and I'm in a VERY safe neighborhood with excellent schools.

Plus I drive by that Dunkin Donuts every morning and have even stopped there.

Best area in the world? No. But its a high-traffic area and considered "safe" by most people. I've even pumped gas across the street at night and never felt scared for my life.

Lauderhill detectives say group killed just for 'kicks' -- South Florida Sun-Sentinel.com (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/community/news/lauderhill/sfl-flbdunkin1209sbdec09,0,6196386.story - broken link)

Just walked in and started shooting people "for fun"

P.S. Anybody want to buy my house so I can move to Skybrook

Default Skybrook

There is just one problem....

I can't sell my house down here and I don't want to foreclose on it. I'm just going to ride the bad economy out and hopefully I can be up there by next Christmas.

If you decide to move here then look at the surrounding areas outside of Charlotte. Cabarrus County is a great place to live and raise your family. We are a very short commute to Charlotte and we have ALOT less crime. I have lived here my entire life and have no plans to ever move!!

Don't rule out South Charlotte - inside highway 51!!! We have older homes w/ very large wooded lots, much privacy, and if there is crime, it hasn't occurred in my neighborhood yet (knock on wood).

Hope you can head our way . . . and I am sure you will find a home that suits you somewhere in our area . ..

Ani the only crime that I can think of in your neighborhood is your poor cable reception.
