I just wanted to thank those on this forum for taking the time to give me such friendly advice about the Greensboro area. I know that every third message is someone looking for relo help and so I am even more appreciative. For those looking to relocate, my advice is to do a search and read the advice already here, and then ask specific questions that haven't already been answered too many times - at least, that worked well for me.

I found a house in Glenwood, well within my meager budget - and again thanks for help with the specifics and pointing me toward crime maps, etc. I know it's a "pioneer" neighborhood, but my street is quiet and feels safe, lots of people around me have lived on the same street their whole life. To be fair, there's some vacants around me and some ne'er-do-well foot traffic around, but overall, it's as nice as the neighborhood in Philly I am coming from, if not nicer. And I am amazed at the sense of community in Glenwood, people volunteered to drive me around the neighborhood, point out trouble spots, hook me up with their realtor, clean up my yard, and on and on. I can't say enough good. I even got hooked up with an awesome and reliable carpenter who's fixing my place up sweet.

I am so happy and proud to be living in Greensboro! Thanks!

Hey that's my old hood! Glad you made it and it's working out for you. Glenwood totally rocks- don't forget to get involved with the neighborhood association. Meets every month at the Glenwood Rec Center, if memory serves. They also have a yahoo newsgroup and whatnot- Greater Glenwood Neighborhood Association, Greensboro NC

Welcome to the Boro!
