Hi I am from Long Island NY and have two young children and a husband. We are a stessed out NY family looking for a slower, happier pace. We are not really city people, but are interested in the suburbs around a city such as Wilmington. We have a boat, love the beach and fishing. We don/t want to be right on the water, about 30 minutes or so would be fine. We are certainly interested in good schools, and a safe neighborhood. We have been looking at Hampsted, Ogden and possibly brunswick county. Could anyone offer any info?? Also I am a nurse and would appreciate any info on the job market.. I currently work in a neonatal ICU. My husband owns his own painting co. How much in demand is his line of work?? Thank you!!!My daughter has some speech and language delays. How good are the schools in handling children with speech and OT needs ? I feel overwhelmed with so many questions, but everyone has been so kind and helpful with your responses. Thanks!

I posted yesterday about the dangers of settling on Wilmington (as far as jobs are concerned) on your other thread. Although with the careers you and your husband have, that might not be such a worry. There are two hospitals there (New Hanover - Large and Cape Fear - Small). Plus with all the homebuilding going on your husband would probably have good luck as far as his work is concerned.

Again, the danger in living in Wilmington isn't the job market.... it's the iminent major hurricanes.

Wink for roxors

Thank you again for your reply. I was thinking if I wasn't actually in the city of Wilmington, but rather in the suburbs, maybe crime would be less. I realize the hurricaine issue would still remain... I have a lot to think about I guess. Thanks again and have a great day!

I lived in Carolina Beach (very little crime), and the Northchase area which is north of town, not all that far from Ogden. That area is pretty nice too.
