I am considering relocating to North Carolina from Brooklyn N.Y. I am in my mid 30's single female and I am looking for a great place to live and start a small business... Have been doing my research and a few areas keep popping up, Durham, Chapel Hill, and Raleigh.. I am very specific in my needs. At that age now where I would like to start a family and settle down always said New York is not really the place for that, would like a better quality of life and live in a location where the weather is great all around.. I am not at all familiar with North Carolina but in doing my research it came up as one of the best places to live for African Americans. I am looking for a great neighborhood to live and open a business. I will be renting first and I am looking for a great apartment complex that is safe, culturally diverse and with a lot of amenities.. City living has spoiled me just a little.. Also looking for a great business location, I am opening a boutique featuring up and coming trendy designers as well as some established designers, catering to cutting edge fashionistas, I will also have an awesome tailor on site to create custom pieces. Is there such a market for such a business in North Carolina... Looking for a neighborhood with great customer traffic but a little bit artsy and trendy.. I will be visiting Durham next month for about 10 days to scout possible locations and get a feel of the areas and the people... Need possible suggestions for places I should look and places to avoid... Thanks so much guys,,

You might get better responses if this was posted on the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill/Cary board.

That said, if you are moving here to start a boutique, I hope you have a very large amount of money put aside for living expenses.

Very.

My favorite boutique here in Cary went out of business recently. I figure it's the economy, because there's plenty of money in the Cary/Morrisville area to afford higher-end clothing stores. I think people are being a bit more guarded in their spending right now.

Good luck in your search. This is a great place to live if you have a means of support.
