Thumbs down I Totally Disagree!

Now, I was born, and raised in Kinston, and it is one of the most horrible places to live (unless you are retired, or have nothing to loose). No business can servive in this town, and before moving (to atlease make some money) be an RN , or a uneducated. I would not buy a house here, because YES it is too expensive for what you get, and what's around, and two, there are only a few neighborhoods left that look decent. That's my responce about the dead town, and for all of those that's lying "TRYING" to make that city sound like it's sooo peaceful, and nice, and quiet, then why does that "Ghost Town" have an 11pm curfew?
Responces are welcome...

I was born and raised in Kinston and while I will not "dog" the city because irregardless of it's amenities you should always be proud of where you came from but I did move to Greenville simply because I personally didn't feel the city could give me what I wanted in a homestead. Kinston unfortunately isn't very developed things could change but if you want a nice size city with a small town feel then Kinston might be good for you. Good luck

Kinston's a sleeper. Great old houses, cheap; an hour's drive to the beach; lots of authentic character (which Greenville lacks entirely). There's a sense the town has stagnated. Huge potential if the US economy takes an upswing. I've lived in some great places (Key West, Cape Town) - and see much to like about Kinston.
