I think Charleston used to be a wonderful place; 30 years ago.
Now; not so much.
I moved here from the West Coast, and everyone Told me that it would be like going back 100 years. I didn’t believe them, I thought “come on man it’s the 21st-century”! Well, this is a good old boys town, and there is still certainly tension racially, as well as women having no place in business.
I am a musician, and for the first time in my life, I cannot get booked. Everywhere you go, there are men bands, men solo acts, but a small fraction of women performers.
The traffic is horrendous, but no one will do anything about the infrastructure. The developers are hand in hand with the City, as they get the large 500 unit condo projects, and massive housing developments approved with no problems, even with large community disapproval. I am so disappointed in this city.
