I have lived in Star City for four years now and it is an excellent place to live in the Morgantown area. Great schools in the neighborhood. Close to the university town center. Close to ALDI and Kroger grocery stores. There is a public bus that comes through. There are several bars, restaurants, and cafes close by. It is close to the river and rail trail. There are also a couple of parks. It is a quiet neighborhood which is great for families but there are also things to do close by. The only negative thing is that they can take a while to repair the roads and traffic can get backed up during rush hour.

Star City is the easiest place to live in comparison to the numerous locations I've called home. Friendly people, close proximity to amenities, business development and revitalization of the area. Love this place.
Star City is a really lovely place to live. It's very quiet and easy to get around. The neighborhood is safe and the people are pleasant. The changes I'd like to see made would be fixing the roads as well as fixing sidewalks and adding sidewalks.
