We're looking at buying a townhome in Bennington Place off of Tryon/49 and was wondering about experiences of people who live in/near the area.

I'm concerned about the crime rate and schools, can anyone provide any information on that? I'm getting conflicting information with online resources and want personal experiences!

I'm mainly concerned about the crime rate right now, is this a bad area to live in?

It's not a bad area at all. I haven't heard of a ton of crime near there.

How old are your children? The schools are not top rated but I don't think they are horrible. I know several people that went to Olympic HS which is often looked down upon. They went to good colleges and hold good jobs. I also know a few people currently doing well in college.

I have a daughter who is 2.5 so we still have a while before school time but preparing our selfs none the less.

I found crime statistics from the police records and it was nearly double of south charlotte in general, and even compared it to individual addresses we've been looking at in SW versus Ballantyne area and I was appalled at the differences in reports! Scary. I don't think we'll be moving to this area!
