Default Raleigh/Cary and Trinity Road - questions

What is the difference between Raleigh and Cary ? Is living on Trinity road in Raleigh at the border safe for a black single woman? Is the police
department racist?

not sure what you mean by 'difference between raleigh and cary' they are two separate towns...

trinity road is safe enough, as far as i know. though you might have a high population of college kids in the area. events at the fair grounds or stadium can make traffic a nightmare in certain areas over there.

racism really is not a problem here, despite the constant questions about it.

Trinity road is pretty family oriented down where it goes from Raleigh to Cary. There are some older neighborhoods there and at least one new neighborhood. I pass through there daily (and live off Trinity Rd a little further into Raleigh) and it's always quiet. I don't think you'll have any problems.

Completely unrelated to your question but I wish Cary would build the connector (http://www.townofcary.org/Departments/Engineering/Engineering_Projects/Cary_Parkway_Extension_Map.htm - broken link) from Cary Parkway to Trinity Road. There are so few useful alternatives to I-40 around here.

Oh MzJazzy I completely understand. I just find the idea of asking random people on the internet about safety a real odd one. I've said it several times in many many other posts but asking if an area is safe is not really a fair question. The responses you're going to get are going to be based on an individuals pereption of safety. There are areas in Raleigh/Cary where I may feel completely safe and you would be uncomfortable and vice versa. My best suggestion would be to ride through the areas you are considering moving to at different times of the day and night. Thats really the best way to gain your own opinion on if an area is safe.

Good luck and welcome to the area!

It would help if you could be more specific about what information you need.

What do you want to know about Cary vs. Raleigh? Housing costs? Neighborhoods? Jobs? Schools? Transportation?

Safety, as BiggJoe has said, is relative. I'm sure someone can provide crime statistics, but only you can decide what those numbers mean for you.

Is the police department racist? I don't know how to even begin to answer that kind of question.
