Great to place to visit, but do not move here - 1/1/2012||
I just relocated to Athens. I must say that after a month I don't like it. The crime is really bad here. The crime in the city is mostly robberies, burglaries, and thefts. The city is very, very, very poor. People are basically in survival mode and will do anything just able to survive even if it means to defraud someone or steal. I will be moving again. I would suggest not moving here. There are no safe places in the city. Several of the university buildings have been broken into numberous times. It was in the newspaper that a man was hold up on the parking lot of a retail business one night after a visit to the local grocery store. I would not suggest that anyone move here. The city is extremely poor. I really don't understand why the city is so poor when it is a university town and there are educational opportunities.
