Review of Rocky Mount, North Carolina

life in rocky mount
Star Rating - 9/5/2009
i have lived here for two years and witnessed the rapid fall of hte cities values. its hard to find a job. the homes are aweful; the rent is too much for the money you make; the city does little for the people but go up on taxes. i would not recommand moving to here unless you plan to start your own business. and even then the business' here do well for a while then fall. the people love the business and are excited about it, then as soon as the excitment and newness leaves, the business falls due to less traffic of people. many small business owners have closed there doors due to the residents leaving to go to local city and caitpal raleigh for there excitement. the city offers very little but a nice place to raise children and even then, crime is growing and killings happen once a week.

A neighbor of mine was shot and killed a few weeks ago, and no one has been charged. I guess that's one way to keep the official murder rate from being even higher.
