I was looking for a place to rent and found a double wide in the Cranes Nest Section of Coeburn I was wondering about that particular area, if it was safe, or had alot of drugs (like out in the open, b/c this area is saturated with them), if it floods alot ect. Its just me and my two kids so I need to know if its safe or not.

I don't think it is dumb at all people ask about places for rent all the time on here. So I figured since I know nothing about coeburn or anyone in coeburn that this would be the best place to ask...so do you know anything constructive or do you just like to post dumb things

i always post dimb things. i get off on it, just ask anyone that reads my idiotic posts and wants to hurt me. i don't know anything constructive and i just get on here to annoy people. how am i doing so far, genious? are you on drugs like all the other losers on here? if you're looking to move into crane's nest there's plenty of drugs there so that's probably why you want to. i am an ignorant hillbilly moron and peoud of it. my ambition in life is to go on welfare and have enough kids to make a better living than you do. i'm working on an impressive beer gut and i only shower twice a month. you'll see me at the store the first of every month to use the ebt card that all you hard working people are kind enough to provide me with because I'm too sorry to work. I like to fill my cart with junk food and ride around in the electric cart that is supposed to be for handicapped people but instead fat people like me get to them first. I think I'll have steak tonite. yum yum! Now that I've got that off my chest, this is the danger of posting on topix. There is always some joker out there looking to have a laugh at your expense. I'll admit there are some really good discussions on here but most of the time they're few and far in between. Good luck finding a nice place to live, Crane's Nest ain't really all that bad.

No one drugs or anything like that I'm just pretty much a normal person who is tired of living in an apartment and trying to find a half way decent place to live lol

There are drugs in almost every neighborhood in Coeburn, and Cranesnest is definitely no exception. Just because they're there you don't have to use the drugs or associate with the people who use them. Every situation is what you make of it. I recommend you stay to yourself in cranesnest or just about any other area of Wise County and you should be ok, even in the apartment complexes. This just isn't the kind of place that you can open yourself up to many friendships, because most of the druggies are really good at hiding what they are, and will zero in on decent people and use them. Good Luck.

I live here and i have had no problems with anyone in the last 3 years.Sure you have a few pockets of white trash around but your going to have that in any state you live in,believe me,i have been in every one over the years. I have never gotten broke into,never had any words with anyone nor have i had a reason to. With the exception of 2 families i can think of,most of the people here are friendly and well behaved.

That was exactly my point. Every place has its bad apples but the person who is considering moving to the cranesnest section doesn't have to associate with them. Every place you live and for that matter nearly everything in life is what you choose to make it. If this person chooses to move to the area and associate with the decent people she will have a good experience, if she chooses to lay with the dogs she will probably wake up with fleas. This is true from the richest neighborhoods (even gated communities have bad people), to the poorest areas. The people I know in cranesnest report much the same experience as you have so if she makes the right choices I really think she'll be ok.

I think it's funny that people who make fun of food stamp recipients always refer to food stamps as either snap or ebt - something someone's who's never had to use them would know what they're called... Most people who've never needed assistance just say welfare or food stamps, those who have had them call them ebt or snap...

Actually there are no really nice places in Wise County to live. That is a terrible statement to make, but it is true.

Cranes Nest is no different than living in town, Crab Orchard, Bondtown, Toms Creek, Powers Town, Tacoma, Flatwoods, or Banner. None of those places are what you would call nice. There are nice, decent people living in all those places, but there are those others that live there too. You need to choose the people you associate with wisely. Look at the houses that are beside the double wide you want to rent, take a good look at the people who live around there. Most people can get a good idea of what kind of people live there by just looking at the surroundings. I wish you luck!!

Saint Paul, Norton, Wise, Pound, Appy, Big Stone Gap/they are all the same. Really not much to choose from, they all have their good people and their bad people/just have to learn which ones are the good ones and don't associate with the bad ones. All towns in Wise County have their bad eggs, they all have the slum areas, but it seems that most of them have more bad areas than good areas this day and time. Times have changed, people have changed, morals have changed.

Be safe, be wise and I truly wish you and your children the best.
