Gastonia, NC

zip code 28052 - 8/11/2008
I moved here from Massachusetts one year ago, and I have enjoyed myself. The housing market is great, property taxes low, car insurance low and the food is wonderful. The weather can be very in hot in the months of July & August, when the fall/winter arrives it is beautiful. Living up North the winter months can be very long, if anyone remembers the blizzard of 1978 in Massachusetts. Since coming to the Carolina's I have found that the people are friendly, there is still that underlined racism, but the folks are trying improve, the employment is great if you work in the city of Charlotte. There are more people from the North, Midwest that are moving here that I found and have spoken with. The crime is low, school system needs some improvement, commuting can be very hectic, there is no commuter rail or transit system other than the town of Gastonia's bus system. All your textile industries are gone, so its mostly city government, retail, food chains and banking employment. A college education with a degree higher than Associates is a most if you want to make decent money. The cost living is absolutely wonderful.
