We moved to Jackson, MS from Florida this year 2011. I HATE it. We live in Northeast Jackson. Honestly, I've never met such unfriendly people.
If anyone is moving here from out of state, STAY AWAY from JACKSON, look in Madison or Brandon.

Heres a few things that might help you got in with NE Jackson:

1. Put your kids into JA. Make sure they play sports.
2. Enroll at Ole Miss. Or at least fly an Ole Miss banner every Saturday.
3. Walk around in hospital scrubs. Pretend to be a doctor.
4. Join the Junior League. If you don't know what that is, see the movie The Help, for an introduction.

Come on over a few miles to Clinton...I just moved here and everyone is friendly. I have a co-worker that lives in north east Jackson and I will chew him out for being mean to you Seriously, sorry you're having a hard time. I moved here from Utah at the end of June and am having a wonderful time. Wish you were too. How long have you been here? Hope things get better.

Yeah hope things get better for you! I live in Florida but I'm from Mississippi, now every state in the south has dangerous parts but everyone knows Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama, Tennessee, Texas and South Carolina are most dangerous states in the south and not talking about racism, I'm talking about crime in general!

It's been years since I lived in Jackson, but from what I can remember about Northeast Jackson if your not a doctor,lawyer or indian chief, people seem to turn there nose up at you. Madison was a good place[not sure now with a lot of people moving there back in the day]. Brandon was pretty nice as well. Hope things get better for you.

Sorry, things aren't going well for you.

I moved to Jackson 2 years ago from Maryland for college, and everybody was friendly in my opinion.Idk, about NE, or the different areas, but i was all around Jackson, and I loved it.

But, everybody has different experiences, so definitely move where you feel comfortable. That's very important.

I hope things get better for you as well.
