Default Columbus, Ohio

People who live or have lived in Columbus, what are your opinions of the city. As far as everything from people to job oppurtunities?

Job opportunities in Columbus are always really good because the suburbs and businesses are just booming! Although, right now since the market sucks jobs are not as plentiful as they normally would be. I wouldn't move without a job right now. I say that because I am actually planning to move to South Carolina, but I will not move until I secure a position. Jobs are really tough everywhere right now even in Columbus the fast growing city east of the Mississippi. However, if you are set on moving to Columbus your odds are much better here than many other cities in the midwest.

Columbus is a big fluffy puppy compared to Cleveland or Cincinnati. The people are amazingly nice and there are no major social issues confronting the city.

I am only saying that people in Columbus are warm and genuinely friendly with less social stress on their hands than folks in Cleveland or Cincinnati.

Columbus is an easy place to live. That's about the most succinct way I can come up with to summarize my feelings on the city.

I've lived here for 45 years. It's hard to believe there are worse places than this. The thing that makes it so bizarre is that when they come to destroy your neighborhood, your neighbors will side with the bad guys even if they apparently get nothing out of it. People here are sadistic and enjoy just watching innocent neighbors suffer. They laugh it off. And once members of the growing number of sociopaths move in next to you, it will be too late to change address because no one will want your property. It's now part of their personal insane party zone. S'pose I shouldn't complain because it's apparently worse in Cleveland. But, when yer up at 1-5am with psychotic neighbors, and the police have quit coming when you call, what else ya gonna do? That's life in Columbus.

I've been here for about half a year and find Columbus to be a combination of Mayberry RFD and Children of the Corn

I think that's a good observation. I said something similar to someone a few days ago as it relates to the folks in Chicago. I miss c'bus. I might move back in summer 09 if all goes well.

Welcome to life in the city. I've got friends across the country--from San Diego to New York--who complain about the same thing. Sorry that you have sucky neighbors, though.
