For Most people's information concerning the house that keeps popping up on this feed...It's the old Navy Admiral's House and is currently slated for restoration. Here are a few myths that I'd like to dispel. First, North Charleston is NOT an ARMPIT! It is a huge city with various areas of good an bad locations and has a large industrial complex, true, but is also the largest retail generator in SC. Most of North Charleston is radically changing with large industries moving in including the biggest acquisition for jobs yet, the new BOEING 787 plant! The article someone referred to as North Charleston being on of the 10th highest crime areas in the country was proved to be highly misleading since it was based on an erroneous report by one crime analysis agency that covered only domestic violent crime per ratio which was based on incorrect numbers and was highly misleading. In fact, domestic violent crime has dropped considerably in North Charleston and rose substantially in downtown Charleston (Yes, the historic district), Mt. Pleasant, West Ashley and even Summerville, but those cities will never report accurate crime statistics as they want to keep their real-estate value high. Most of the crime in North Charleston happens in low-income areas and Mayor Sumney has doubled his police force and is making a huge impact even in those areas. Then there is Park Circle, which btw, was designed by the famous Olmstead Group that also designed Central Park and the Biltmore Gardens! In fact, Park Circle just got voted one of the 10 best neighborhoods to live in America by Money Magazine and voted one of the neatest places for old houses by This Old House Magazine in 2012! [mod]link removed, please read the tos[/mod]- They were even voted "Coolest Neighborhood" by Men's Health Magazine and even EVO pizzaria won one of the 10 best pizza restaurants in the USA!
Olde Montague Avenue is changing fast with new bars, spas, restaurants and galleries. North Charleston is changing it's look and it's reputation because it's centrally located in Charleston, helps with gas, and has some of the best old oak trees in the tri-county area! It's a nice place to live, don't let the naysayers fool you. They are the same ones who are desperately trying to get their children into the School of the Arts in North Charleston, while living in Mt. Pleasant or Downtown Charleston all the while turning their snobby noses up to a cool, cosmopolitan city that is quickly changing and coming of age!

Oh please, let's take a few more whacks at this old horse. He's not quite dead yet.
