I just found this site and read a posting regarding this area. Someone unfairly judged North Charleston, Otranto Rd. area.....I live in Northwoods Pointe along Otranto Rd. I want to say that this is a great place to live and I enjoy it very much. In addition to it already being a great place to live, there is alot of new development that is positively impacting property owners and subdivisions in this area. Where else can you find a large County Park (Wannamaker Park), waterpark (Whirlin Waters), premier private college (Charleston Southern University), private school (Northwood Academy), 2 churches (Deer Park Baptist Church and Northwoods Assembly), hospital (Trident Hospital), interstate access (I-26), 2 large brand new hotels (Fairfield Suites and another), an emergent healthcare facility (Nason Medical Center - being built now) several restaraunts, drugstores, banks, and many other businesses within a 3 mile radius??? Would all of that exist in a dirty, crime-ridden, poorly maintained area?? I do not think so! I just hope the people commenting about this area actually live here...

Try not to let it get to you (easier said than done). You will find a lot of half truths on this board, you just hope people are smart enough to figure things out on their own. Welcome to the board btw, we need more views and opinions from people out in your neck of the woods.

Whenever North Charleston is mentioned on this board people think the worse. Sure if you look at crime stats it doesn't look like a good place but the crimes are happening in certain areas.

Like scjj said, try not to let it get to you. I live in GC and some people on this board talk badly about it.

Well, darkchild001 - Welcome to the area!!! Yes, despite what people who DO NOT LIVE IN THIS AREA might say on here, this area is a great place to live. No, you will not find anyone trying to sell you crack, steal your car, etc.....It is pretty quiet here and people just go to work, come home, eat dinner, and keep to themselves for the most part...Isn't that what everyone wants? No "shady characters" scoping out your windows, etc...I encourage you to get involved with your local civic group (Deer Park Civic Group in this area), or Homeowners' Association so you can see what is going on in the community. Take care and welcome to our area!

Most of the area is a fine area to live in. In fact North Charleston has some very nice neighborhoods. On of my new favorites is Taylor Plantation. It is just beautiful with the water right there and the old trees everywhere. I have also sold a few homes in Taylor, Windsor Hill, Summerfield Cedar Grove and have homes listed in Coosaw Creek. All great neighborhoods in the North Area. Otranto is great also so quaint and neighborly. Now if they could just get the schools up to par in the non-Dorchestor county areas. Not everyone can afford private.

The Otranto Subdivision is actually in Hanahan city limits. I don't understand why there isn't a different name for the N Chas side of Otranto Rd. once it crosses Hwy 52.
