Hello. I am planning to relocate from Pittsburgh to either Charlotte or the Raleigh area within the next year. I'm trying to learn how Charlotte compares to PGH.....Neighborhoods? Traffic? People? Any advice on what areas of Charlotte would be nice? I live in Bellevue now, but the area is getting more run down by the day. In Charlotte, I'd be interested in a development that would be a cross between, say...Forest Hills and Mt. Lebanon. Upper-middle class, educated, and preferably Democratic! I have more questions on the NC area......hope to hear back from some PGH'ers!

p.s. Pittsburgh 45.......Kansas City 7.......whooo hooo!!!

The first thing is you have to become a Panther fan if you move to Charlotte there is not enough room for other teams to be supported

Traffice is a little congested but from i can tell its a little better than other area. Rides into Charlotte during rushhour can be a little enoying.

Sorry cannot compare the neighborhoods for you but there are some real nice area in and around Charlotte.

Good Luck!

First off you'll obviously disregard that about becoming a panther fan, no Pittsburgher would ever do something so stupid like abandoning the greatest football franchise for a 2-bit team with a crier as thier stud...hahaha...ya that made me laugh. Anyway, i moved from Pgh last year to Raleigh, Cary specifically and it's really a whole different world. You'd have to come here and visit to experience it, just how everything is layed out and how things are far apart, like in PGH everything is crammed right next to each other, everything here is spread out. I know this a very general explanation but it really is a whole different world.

I'll set you up with some steelers fans. I tried to convert them but no such luck.

For those of you who have lived in both Pittsburgh and North Carolina can you tell me which place, in your opinion, is the best to raise a family. I am currently living in Northeast PA and considering a move somewhere we can afford a nice home in a good, safe neighborhood with good schools. Which place has a lower cost of living, and which place is less crowded. Pittsburgh came up as a good, inexpensive place to raise a family, in The Places Rated Almanac, but we are also interested in Raleigh because of the weather. Any input or observations would be very much appreciated.
