What neighborhoods are considered "north" "south" "east" "west" Charlotte?

They are so loosely defined.

hmmmm...well, use uptown as your center and everything north of it is north Charlotte, everything east of it is east Charlotte, ect...

Is there really an "official" definition of these areas of Charlotte? Probably not.

True but aren't Western Charlotte and "West Charlotte" different? West Charlotte is a small area west of uptown. Western Charlotte is not the same area and includes Steele Creek (SW Charlotte) and the Mountain Island area (NW Charlotte).

Not exactly. West Charlotte is everything west of uptown all the way down to approximately due south of the airport at Shopton Rd. Everything below that is southWEST Charlotte, otherwise known as the Steele Creek area. On the northern end of west Charlotte would be Freedom Dr. Above THAT you get into northWEST Charlotte

I wouldn't put North lake or all the new developments near Mt Island Lake that are apart of Charlotte in either North Charlotte or west Charlotte it should be consider Northwest Charlotte it more progressive than north or west Charlotte.
That about as bad as people thinking Ballintyne is a city
