My husband and I are moving to Greensboro this summer. We are considering renting in McAdoo Heights. What can anyone tell me about this area? Anything would be helpful. Thanks!

I've never heard anything bad about it as far as crime. From what I can tell it's a blue collar neighborhood with a lot of rentals. Are you renting there to walk to the hospital for work?
You can checkout Greensboro police reports here:

Are you looking to rent a house or an apartment?
If an apartment I suggest Latham Park apartments, inexpensive, next to a park, in a safe area and only a few minutes from downtown. Link below:

Thanks- I've looked online at those before and they look great. We have a cat and a large dog, though, and it looks like they only allow cats. It is sure hard to find places that take dogs - especially big ones. He's about 75 lbs.

A bit of trivia:
McAdoo heights is named after NBA Star Bob McAdoo who is from Greensboro. He came back there to retire afte his career. I used to talk to him at various stores and restaurants on occasion...LOL

The more I research, it looks like we will rent in McAdoo Heights. The surrounding areas look nice. Still, though, if anyone could offer any information on this area, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Yeah, if you have a large dog you are gonna have to rent a house.
If you have the time just drive around in the neighborhood on a sunny afternoon. People are getting outside this time of year to do yard work, I bet someone would be glad to give you info on the neighborhood.

We actually found an apartment that will allow big dogs. We really like the apartment complex and area but would also love to have the things that come with a house.. more room, a yard, that neighborhood feel.

I'm Greensboro born and raised... and I didn't know that neighborhood was named after THAT McAdoo! :-)

But I must agree some of the others who have replied. This is a good area to rent a property. Nice mix of people. You have the mega-rich right next to you in Irving Park (Old and New) and the more blue-collar areas around Revolution. Though that area is getting a lot of yuppies renovating those nice little mill-houses in the past ten years or so...

Plus the proximity to shopping (Golden Gate and State Street Shops) and downtown is also a good point.
