Having grown up here, moved away, then moved back 4 years ago, I can attest to the fact that Greensboro has come A LONG ASS way in the past 10 years.

Stay out of East Winston and you're fine. I've never felt unsafe downtown, just try to avoid spooky areas like East 7th Street.

Ate at Elizabeth's on Lawndale today. Nothing special.

Also, I went to the Tap Room on Battleground for lunch last Friday. Chicken sandwich was the bomb, brown ale was above average. Will dine again.

^^ Speakeasy is a good lunch spot during football season. They have $.25 wings all day on Mondays, and it's in that same little strip as Tap Room

^ Yeah, that place is good. You should go into the fish store over behind there sometime. It's the only saltwater fish store in Greensboro, and they have some really cool fish in there.

I had a saltwater tank for years so I used to frequent that place a lot. But trust me, he knows he's the only shop in town. Shit is way overpriced in there.

But it's still neat to go in and look around

it's really not that bad of a place, and certainly not as bad as not wanting to be caught in 75% of it after dark. the night life just isn't very good.

I can't comment on the nightlife in Greensboro, I don't live here. But there's nothing wrong with 4th/6th/Trade in my opinion.

wtf are you doing on Waughtown street anyway?

Looking for good Mexican food or 30 year old sedans?

Downtown Winston is safe as shit as I mentioned above. Don't go poking around in abandoned warehouses and you're straight.

Well I can see why you have a bad impression of Winston. South of 421, east of 52 is all poor white people and Mexicans. I grew up in Ardmore, and other than my bike getting stolen twice by the same black kid, it was and is great.

So I'm slightly more at risk to be a victim of a violent crime in Winston? I'm packing my bags now.

Are there any stats that show what a shithole Greensboro is?

Quote :
" With a crime rate of 76 per one thousand residents, Winston Salem has one of the highest crime rates in America compared to all communities of all sizes - from the smallest towns to the very largest cities. One's chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime here is one in 13. Within North Carolina, more than 80% of the communities have a lower crime rate than Winston Salem.

Importantly, when you compare Winston Salem to other cities of similar population, the Winston Salem crime rate (violent and property crimes combined) is quite a bit higher than average. Regardless of how Winston Salem does relative to all communities in America of all sizes, when NeighborhoodScout compared it to communities of similar population size, its crime rate per thousand residents stands out as higher than most.

The crime data that NeighborhoodScout used for this analysis are the seven offenses from the uniform crime reports, collected by the FBI from 17,000 local law enforcement agencies, and include both violent and property crimes, combined.

Now let us turn to take a look at how Winston Salem does for violent crimes specifically, and then how it does for property crimes. This is important because the overall crime rate can be further illuminated by understanding if violent crime or property crimes (or both) are the major contributors to the general rate of crime in Winston Salem.

For Winston Salem, we found that the violent crime rate is one of the highest in the nation, across communities of all sizes (both large and small). Violent offenses tracked included forcible rape, murder and non-negligent manslaughter, armed robbery, and aggravated assault, including assault with a deadly weapon. According to NeighborhoodScout's analysis of FBI reported crime data, your chance of becoming a victim of one of these crimes in Winston Salem is one in 122.

Significantly, based on the number of murders reported by the FBI and the number of residents living in the city, NeighborhoodScout's analysis shows that Winston Salem experiences one of the higher murder rates in the nation when compared with cities and towns for all sizes of population, from the largest to the smallest.

In addition, NeighborhoodScout found that a lot of the crime that takes place in Winston Salem is property crime. Property crimes that are tracked for this analysis are burglary, larceny over fifty dollars, motor vehicle theft, and arson. In Winston Salem, your chance of becoming a victim of a property crime is one in 15, which is a rate of 68 per one thousand population. "
