What do you think about the pretty streets off of Moss Side Lane? Like Province LAne. Also, what is up with Stratford subdivision by there- is it for upper middle class black people? Just curious. Thanks.

I really like those smaller one street subdivisions. They are very nice.

As for Concord Estates, most of it is middle-class black...pretty good neighborhood, though. Pretty quiet.

I think it's a collection of great neighborhoods in the middle of the town. And I like the fact there is a lot of green space still around.

Yes, Stratford Place (and adjacent Concord Estates) are where upper middle income blacks live. In the 1970s when this happened to Concord Estates, it created white flight. However, after the idea of living next to blacks didn't become a big deal anymore, there has been no racial change along other neighborhoods along Moss Side. So now, Concord/Stratford are the home to BR's black elite (lawyers, judges, doctors), and those willing to look past the racial aspects of living there realize you can get a LOT of house for your money - and these are nice houses, too.

I actually live in Concord and its a nice area. The "white flight" is true and it was crazy. When we moved into the subdivision about 15 years ago our neighbor was white, but he moved maybe two weeks later. Moss side is a nice area, but it's expensive! There are some really nice houses on Moss side and I use to see red fox really early in the morning when I'd go to the gym, but haven't seen one in over a year.
