Not the area, but Four Season Mall seems & looks ghetto!

Inside the mall looks ghetto, or outside the mall? I shop there often and it just looks like your average mall to me. Hmm.

I live in Charlotte (so this is an outsiders opinion) but the inside and outside seem run down compared to Hanes Mall in Winston-Salem which is much larger, cleaner & nicer!

Surely GSO has better shopping than that 100 year old mall.

We have SouthPark Mall, Carolina Place Mall, North Lake Mall...all which are very well kept and don't seem to have problems like Four Seasons Mall.

Friendly Center. Much nicer. More upscale shops too.

I don't see what the issue is with Four Seasons? I grew up there as a child. (I'm only 20, so it isn't like it's been 20 years) I never felt afraid, and I rode my bike all around Rolling Roads you go further down Four Seasons Blvd. (the neighborhood behind the townhomes on Vanstory Street). I still live here in Greensboro, and I don't see why you think Four Seasons is "ghetto".

It has just as good shops as Friendly, and also, Four Seasons did not have to tear down a gorgeous work of architecture (the old BI building) to have its "P.F. Chang's" and "Mimi's Cafe".

Trust me, the area around the mall is not too bad. The company managing it is making sure it won't turn into another Carolina Circle, and I would not feel threatened living there.

The only issue are the schools. But now, Smith High has an advanced academy and IB, so things are looking up.

Also, I agree with our Realtor friend, Glenwood is up and coming. I have relatives that live in there, and it also is not as bad as you think.

Most of these people here must be pretty sheltered to think that area is "ghetto". It's not primarily Caucasian white, but rather Asian and Hispanic, it isn't "upscale", but it's a decent middle-class area.

That's what I love about these forums! You get so many opinions and you can really piece it together. An area is rarely just "bad" or just "good." The history of it, the trend, the terrain, the roads, it all paints the picture of a town or a neighborhood. I guess that's why they always say the 3 most important things in real estate are: location, location, location.
