To be more precise, it's okay during the day in most areas of the neighborhood but gets dicey after dark.
I have great neighbors and like being close to uptown with easy freeway access. On the other hand, I wouldn't advise strolling around the area late in the evening as there's a prominent crime element (no denying); also, there are a lot of unsightly businesses and a high percentage of run down properties as well as a fairly business rail road line. Because of all this the residential prices are better in west Charlotte than in a number of other neighborhoods this close to city center - but it looks to me like there's planned progress to improve everything along the Brookshire corridor from uptown out to Mountain Island so over the next decade I think the area will continue to become better.
You have to really look for a good employment opportunity while there is a lot there are only a few that you would actually want to do or at least do the job with a good pay, this only applies to a first time job applier
There are not a lot of jobs in this area, rent prices are high.
The people tend to keep to themselves.
