Median Household Income
I was born and raised here, I love my hometown and it’s pretty safe. My mother is from England but raised in Dublin Ireland, moved here with her family of 5 siblings. My father is an American, born and raised in Salisbury MD as well! I’ve enrolled into my Bachelor’s of Health Management with AIU and I start May 6, 2020 just after May 5 when I graduate with my BA. I’ve learned so much and I feel good about it. I am a FASFA candidate and any and all income would be greatly appreciated. I also have 6 children of my own that I’ve been raising since they were born with the oldest being 25 and the youngest is 3 and he’s growing bigger every day. While the Coronavirus is in effect, I wish all the very best of health and please continue to remain careful at all times. We need to grow our economy’s strong again but within the safe timeframe. We can’t afford to have any losses more than we’ve already, unfortunately encountered.
I love the people in my community. Like in most town's there are some unsafe areas but overall I love where I live. Salisbury is close to the beach and has many bodies of water making it a fun place to live when we have great weather. I wish some areas in town could be updated. In downtown Salisbury many renovations have been happening and it looks great. Hopefully this will continue all throughout Salisbury. During the winter it can get quite boring here. Salisbury needs some more life!
Not much to do and not very inclusive. The town is very dark at night. Drunken college students dominate the scenery. Cinema and restaurants are the dominant attractions. Unless you go to Ocean city, 30 minutes away and more pricey. There is underlying racism throughout the community. The cops profile and harass the minority community. Commodity like food and housing are very expensive compare to the median salary. Lots of snakes and bugs. k-12 education quality is average. Safety is not a real concern if you know which area to avoid. Public transportation is not reliable. Need to own car to hold a job. On the plus, wealthy retiree people will enjoy quiet life. Lots of outdoor space.
