Greenville is a city that has a lot to offer. From college football to family friendly parks to delicious local restaurants there is plenty of great activities to do without having to drive too far. There is a great nightlife downtown with several bars and clubs. All throughout the city there is a variety of shops and boutiques along with a mall. There are also many apartment complexes and safe neighborhoods to live. Greenville also offers many medical practices and an amazing hospital with generous staff!
My experience with the City of Greenville, NC. was mixed. My primary focus for this review was public safety and community concerns. Greenville has a population of 174 thousand with a racial composition of 60% Caucasian, 32% African American, 5% Hispanic, and 3% other. I spoke with 24 residents, covering each composition. Among Caucasians the greatest community concern was the public school system. The majority reported the public school system to be lagging behind in educational standards. Among African Americans & Hispanics the greatest concern was the lack of employment. With Eastern Carolina University being located within the City, the college floods the local employment with students for entry level jobs, leaving very little employment opportunities. Among all groups public safety was commended. All groups reported the Police & Fire Departments to be friendly, fair, and compassionate.
A community filled with diverse and upcoming public advancements. Plenty of business, restaurants, community centers and home to East Carolina Pirates!
