Greensboro gets my personal preference. However, High Point is not a bad place to live. If you have been swayed off it as a result of negative responses, just know the Triad has lots of options. Summerfield, Oak Ridge and of course Greensboro are beautiful places to live. Speak to your real estate agent for insight into neighborhoods and activities. The best way to learn about a city is to visit it with a person who lives in that very area.

Good luck!

Lisa

Established neighborhood with some beautiful homes and lots of big old growth trees. Westover (other end of Shadow Valley) had a residential construction bomb dropped there.

Does anyone know what the name of my neighborhood is? I live on Manor dr. The neighborhood is shaped like a butterfly and the neighborhood to the left is called Eastwood park. The one to the right sandwiched between Manor and Scientific that has Edgeview, Longview and Newview roads in it doesn't seem to be called anything. A house for sale on upper Manor near Greensboro rd. listed the neighborhood as "A. Fred Crisp property" but that doesn't seem like a neighborhood name. Any info? Thanks, Leah

I'd say crime is a relative non-issue so long as you stay out of the hood. I've lived here most of my life and have never really felt scared or intimidated unless I was venturing towards an unsavory part of town - and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize when you're approaching them.

The biggest negative about living in HP is the general lack of stuff to do. I'd recommend living closer to G-Boro (i.e. near the Paladium), but you could do worse than live within the city limits.

Actually high point isn't bad at all it's filled with happiness not depressing and in downtown you should go there when it's the market season, and high point can't have that expensive stuff because of the economy. And the mall is soon to belong to HPU!!

I have lived in High Point (off Skeet Club between Johnson and Old Mill) since December and I think it is just fine, other than the F3 tornado that tore through last Sunday. I have lived in many places in the last 42 years, and I can tell you that High Point may not be the best, but it is no where near the worst.

Also, anyone who thinks there is a "hood" in High Point has never seen a real "hood" before. Try 5th Ward in Houston, or any real "hood" in any real city. Then you will know what a "hood" really is. Every town has a poor, crime ridden area. What matters is that you are aware of where it is, and take proper precautions if you ever venture into that area.

I don't think it's that bad. Of course there are the bad spots, and I think Greensboro is better, but High Point isn't as bad as some places I've been. It's definitely better then Sumter.
