How much are u wanting to spend? Check out downtowns Southside Neighborhood. It is in the 27406 zip code. Prices start in low 200,000. Otherwise there are hundreds of neighborhoods in Greensboro to choose from.

The best innercity neighborhoods are Southside and Fisher Park. Southside is a national award winning neighborhood with a collection of new homes that look historic and old homes built in 1887 that have been renovated. There are townhomes, live-work units, luxury apartments, condos and singe family homes with living space above detached garages. You could rent those spaces above the garages as apartments if you wanted to which would means some extra cash in your pocket. (prices ranging from $200,000 to $500,000) The neighborhood is only a short walk from downtown's entertainment and restaurant row on Elm Street. Alot of the architecture in Southside is unique to Greensboro specially the Tower Homes. Architecture styles range from French Quarter New Orleans to Charleston to Georgetown to early 20th century Greensboro. The architecture is very colorful with Charleston, SC like pastel colors. There is a small neighborhood park with a pretty fountain there. Small businesses and a few restaurants line the streets in the live-work units so if you want a smoothie or a cup of coffee, its just a few steps away. There is an upscale wine cafe there called "The Press" but it is currently closed. You cant miss it, its the building on the corner that looks like one of the buildings in the French Quarter in New Orleans. New owners are suppose to take over the restaurant but im not sure when it will open back up. It was a cool laid back place to enjoy a glass of wine or two and listen to live jazz music. There is also sidewalk cafe seating at The Press. The place was packed on Thursday, Friday and Saturdat nights

Fisher Park is a historic downtown neighborhood with beautiful mansion, a number of them from the 19th century. It was Greensboro's first "suburb" although today its its an urban downtown neighborhood. I consider both neighborhoods safe....but if the innercity is not your thing, check out suburban neighborhoods in Northwest Greensboro. Those tend to be the safest.

Second what yourhometriad said. Those are some of the oldest and most well established neighborhoods in Greensboro.

Greensboro has alot to be proud of...now only if we could get that downtown grocery store. quite frankly, of all the grand things that have been proposed, that tops my list. I think there are enough homes in a 2 to 3 mile radius to support one. I dont understand why grocery stores are so common everywhere else in the city yet it seems to be an almost impossible feat to have one downtown. Even the lowest income neighborhoods have at least a Food Lion so whats the hold up? We can build a 17-story luxury condo tower downtown with some units that sale as high as $3 million yet we cant build a grocery store downtown. I think the building that fronts MLK Jr Dr at the corner of South Elm Street would make a great grocery store. My mother said years ago in the 1950s and 60s it use to be a grocery store.

Good point gsoboi. I think it would be cool to have Aldi grocery store there. It appeals to a low and high income demographic (which seems to be the demographic of downtown Greensboro). Cheap prices for the low income and european food products (German) that the high-end folks like. There is an Aldi on high point rd and Randleman Rd according to their web site.
If you are interest gsoboi you can propose the location you suggested to Aldi at this web page:

Thanks for the link. and that building is about the size of an Aldi Store. In fact Aldi has been opening up downtown stores in other states. It might be the right fit for downtown Greensboro. Downtown doesnt have to have a big supermarket like the Tajma Heeter in Friendly Shopping Center but a decent sized store that sells everything you'd find in a chain store and maybe include a deli and bakery.

The only Aldi I know of here in the G is on High Point road- maybe someone could approach the owners and put a bug in their ear?
