Rosewood is not the place to go! It is full of small minded people and those who fled Goldsboro back in the 1970's. The Historic District is actually very safe now. Look up the crime statistics. Downtown has great architecture and some beautifully restored houses. The old century old train station has just been awarded a large grant that will help complete its restoration. Things go in circles and what has gone up has come down.Rosewood imo has come down. Golfsboro, Mount Olive, or Pikeville are the best places to raise a family!

Also, Rosewood's academics lag behind the other public schools, and way behind Wayne School of Engineeri g, now in the old Goldsboro High School at Beech Street and Herman.

Awwww i feel so bad for u, just live in the area that u think is great but crack smoking, weed smoking, over drinking ,husbands beating their wife and kids, mothers beating their husbands and kids, kids turning on parents and hurting them these problems r not just happening to one race its happening to all races. So you can turn ur head but i know u kno of someone thats not black that have suffered from one of the above issues. Its not going to get better by pointing ur finger at soneone else we all have to tackle it in all of our families

I know that I am late, however, I just had to post here. After coming to this area in 1996, my only thoughts are when the hell am I going to have enough money to move away. This is the WORSE place that I have ever lived and I have lived many places via the military and on my own.
The people are so backwards and ignorant. There are no jobs. The kkk still thrives and the place hasn't yet to step into the 50s, let alone the new millennium. The food is atrocious, OMG! Who the hell eat filthy pork all day? The religious and politic sect are the worse!
There is nothing here for the children to do. The place is always flooding. The sewage lines are god awful, when it rains all day, you can't flush your toilet.
I feel as if I have stepped into the bowels of hell.
Hopefully once we come out of this debt and that shall be real soon, we are getting the hell out of this county and this state.

I forgot to mention how racists these southern folks are. I have lived around people from all walks of life and I swear that NC plays host to some of the most racist, evil, backwoods, ill thinking people i have ever come across. That starts from the court house to the out house. Just plain ole hatred!

Hey, just curious if you ended up moving to gildsberg. I'm a trucker parked here for the night and it barely registers. I like to look up places where I'm parked and was amused to see such a passionate debate about this drive-through garbage town. The weather sucks and your home schooled brainwashed jesus babies probably aren't any more likely to get eaten by gang members than any other random place on the map.

Looking to move wrote:
Thanks Mann 4ever. I appreciate the info. We are looking for a small town feel with enough amenities to get by. We homeschool our children and are just looking for a quiet, simple life. We currently live in a small town (2000 people) and about an hour and a half away from anything besides Walmart. I'm not a big shopper and don't need fancy entertainment. Would love a place to settle down, make a life, and enjoy simple things...without getting bored out of our minds. Not too much to ask for, huh?=)
No town is expensive, not unless u have he'll of an income. Crime is rampant

I don't know if anyone is still reading this, but if you have a choice in the matter, DONT MOVE TO GOLDSBORO NC. Out of 100 the city gets a 2 in the crime index (very unsafe). I'm stationed here and I was tricked into buying a house "oh the neighborhood is great" we'll that's BS because I've lived in this "nice" neighborhood for a year and I have had intruders, mail theft, littering, people high on drugs demanding to come into my house while my wife was home alone at 4am, you name it. On the outside the neighborhood looks beautiful, but it's deceptive. Do your self a favor and never even visit goldsboro. Your likely to get robed in a walmart parking lot at gunpoint at broad daylight. The only things to do around here are an hour away.... So move to those places!

For someone really looking up information on the city this aggravates the fuck out of me if you do not live there shut the fuck up some of us actually want the opinions of long-time homeowners or long time residents because who would know about the city better then them???? Like stated crime and gang related activity is everywhere and that is nothing short of parents to blame if people controlled there kids and raised them to make something of themselves or taught them the importance of school and staying out the streets we wouldn't have this as a issue but for you small minded ass holes speaking on shit you don't know about go get your stupid ass on Facebook or some other social media and make an ass out of yourself there I know I couldn't give two shits about your opinion if you do not or have not lived there anyone can Google some shit but ultimately it is up to the person that is deciding to move there if you do not live there shut up and add your two cents elsewhere like a piggy bank for instance!!!! Save up for a brain so you will know when to speak and when to keep your comments to yourself. I can't stand people who talk out there ass or the hole in there neck so please get that shit checked out by a mental help specialist maybe they can tell you when to shut your mouth!!!!!!!

I was reading all this and it makes me laugh tears. The way some of you talk about Goldsboro like its Newark New Jersey. What a load of BS. You know how often people from Greensboro or Fayetteville have killed people in Goldsboro. Most of these clowns talking about crime in Goldsboro have probably never even been to Webb town or North End, or the Seymour Projects. I'm white, so please tell me why I've never been murdered in these housing projects.

Most of you all don't have a clue what you're typing about. Or you might just be weak little cowards too scared to walk to the mail box because a car might hit you. I've never seen such silly comments. Goldsboro being dangerous or out of control. Like I said, i'm laughing tears thinking about how brave I must be to go see my friends every day in such dangerous conditions.

Man I didn't even see all these new comments until I commented. Some of you people whining about being robbed at Walmart. I just went and bought a video game from Walmart at like 3 in the morning. Yeah the one over by Royal. And guess what. No one robbed me.

This is starting to make me think I must look like some untouchable gangster because i'm not getting robbed like every one else is. What am I doing wrong that i'm not getting robbed.

Yeah everyone, move to Durham or Fayetteville where the crime is much worse. The guys in those cities laugh at the wannabes in Goldsboro. So please listen to this fool who probably never left Seymour Johnson. This guy probably thought Lackland was a challenge so of course he can't protect his home.

If people would tell the truth we all know when the crime spiked in the whole area around Raleigh North Carolina. It's when all those refugees from Louisiana during the Katrina fiasco flooded into Raleigh and started spreading out.
