Hello All,
I will be working near UNC and my wife in Gastonia.

Any thoughts on good places to live (initially in apartments) between GASTONIA and UNC ?

Criteria...
- Good Schools
- Smooth/Less traffic
- Less Crime and shopping near by

Thanks!!

You are very limited in "good schools" on that I85 corridor.

I would look in Belmont, which is next door to Gastonia, or north of the I85 corridor in Huntersville.

I am along the I85 corridor in Winding Walk though we are technically Concord across the street is Huntersville. We have excellent schools - Cox Mill, Harris Road Middle and Cox Mill High School (opened last year). We are near it all. Shopping, grocery stores and our neighborhood is very kid friendly and very little crime. Cars broken into last summer (bored teens).

Winding Walk is great, but it is well beyond the UNCC area

He wants something BETWEEN Gastonia and UNCC.

Yup, & where in Gastonia could skew it too. Keep in mind that on 74 it's only 4 or 5 miles from the western border of Gastonia to the eastern border of City of Kings Mountain. (possibly less that that to unincorporated areas of Kings Mountain) The eastern border is darned near to Charlotte. That's why I asked for the grade levels. Depending on the grades & where in Gastonia, Huntersville might be where they need to look.

Ditto--I would add Mt. Holly to the list too

Thanks for the response everyone.

1. Work location - Near 3050 Riverwood Parkway, Gastonia.
2. Schools - Elementary/Middle

Is the above location in Gastonia a safe working location for Asians?

You should be fine. That's a very safe area of town. It's also convenient to the interstate. Robinwood Rd. forks off to the left, but if you stay straight, it turns into Hoffman Rd., which turns into Redbud, which is one of the exits on 85 (exit 22 if I'm not mistaken). So basically, once you get off the interstate, you don't have to make any turns until you get to Riverwood Parkway.

Yes, that's a safe area for anyone.

There are very good elementary schools & very nice apartments near there, but that's not exactly half-way.
