Last year North charleston was nationally listed as in the top 10 ( I think number 7) most dangerous places to live! It was all over the news.

I feel fine in when I am in certain areas of North Charleston. There are some nice neighborhoods with N Charleston address. Cedar Grove, Taylor Plantation, Coosaw Creek to name a few.

Crime is all over now. Just not as bad and frequent as West Ashley, Summerville,down town and North Charleston. There is bad areas in every town. Heck I use to say I felt safe in Mount P...well I do still... but we had a murder recently in Charleston National a golf community and it wasn't domestic as far as I have heard.

Thanks for the reply Jim. I am in Charleston for a few days this week just looking around. My company is moving me next week so I don't have much time to find anything unfortunately.

Hey Baummy,

I know how that is, trying to work out the details & get a feel for the area.

I drove a guy around to see thirteen homes this Saturday in the rain.
He was from Ohio and I think he waved to more people he knew on the street than I did.

If you get about three hours, a Realtor can make your life easier. Even if you're just looking. There are a few on here that don't mind showing off the area!
jim

That home is on the old Navy Base and from the info I've found out it's not for sale. It's currently owned by the Noisette Company. From all of the history I have read about this home and a few other's near it I would LOVE to have it myself. And yes it's in the "bad" area of North Charleston and close to the Paper Mill. lol

North Charleston is not bad.

It is just that the law applies harshly and unjustly in this county than in adjacent counties.

If you drive through and visit some neigborhoods you will see that the city of N. Charleston with the police force confiscate properties and post city approved signs saying so because of influx of many drug offenses.

There is drugs in neighboring communities but I do not see a deliberate attempt of those counties and cities in confiscating their properties. Jailing its residents etc.

I would be very wary of those new developments in North Charleston because of this.

If the residents of North Charleston are able to put up with this charade following the law and its consequences (jail confiscation of property, etc) by the letter than I would say then the adjacent counties are lawless communities (no consequences and hide offences) and is very welcoming to the grips of fear and hatred.

That is the old Admirals house on the Navy Yard. It is now owned by the city of N.Charleston (I think)
I have been to a wedding at the house and the inside is beautiful!
