Well we moved from Raleigh partly becuase it got too big and lost a lot of the southern charm. It was a good place to bring up the kids but we are loving Greenville. Not sure what it would be like right now to have kid in the Wake County schools with so many teachers leaving.

I've never had one issue with crime since living here. And I live in the West End. I'm from Newburgh New York, the real hood the murder capital of New York state. If you complain about crime in Greenville South Carolina your soft.

That's harsh to say to anyone. Not everyone is from "the hood" and people have only experienced crime in the way that was nearest to their own home. Also, someone could have gone through a traumatic life event (crime speaking) and they want to be in the safest area as possible. Or someone like me, who is a military spouse and home alone quite a bit, and I want to live in the safest area possible. I don't care if there's rarely any crime in Mt Pleasant. I don't trust anyone in this world.

I don't favor one area of SC over another, each area has it's own uniqueness and things that make it special. Just running the numbers, it's interesting to see the different metros and how they stack up.

I say all this because I used to live in Greenville.

Now, if I could live anywhere in the USA and had all the money in the world...Lahaina, Maui. Pretty sure their quality of life is amazing as I've been there and literally cried when I left.
Talk about cost of living Pain? You been to Maui lately?

We are new to Greenville, end of January. We had our catalytic converter stolen from our car yesterday morning. We live in an apartment complex. This is the FIRST time in our married life that we've been victims of a crime. We've lived in CA, KS, MO, OK, and now here. The only time I worry about stuff like this is when we visit my mom in CA. When we first came to Greenville, it was a bit of a culture shock. I found myself adjusting, and now THIS. It is unsettling. I realize in the big scheme of things it is not that big of deal.

I think you have to question a source that says Greenville's population change was -4.7%. From when to when? From whenever to whenever, it's wrong.
