SP I lived in Charlotte back in '95. I was there for just short of 2 years and it was the best place I have ever lived! I loved it. It felt like *home* and I miss living there so much!
We moved there from NJ because my husband-unit was wooed by one of the big financial companies - it was booming down there at the time. They plucked him off Wall Street, along with a lot of NYers! He didn't like the work
and - can you imagine- he missed NYC!!
(what is in the Nations Bank building now anyway? They no longer exist right?)
Long story even longer - LOL - we'd been moving around a lot for about 5 years. Chicago, NJ, Charlotte, then back to NJ where he went back to his old firm and has been there ever since.
Me- I am a native NYer/NJ girl who just ended up back home. When we moved back it was really time to put down roots because I didn't want to move the kids again once they started HS.
I would move back to Charlotte in a heartbeat. I loved that city so much!! For me to still miss it after all these years says a lot!
Sometimes I still wake up and think I am in my house in Charlotte!
How weird is that?
Alas- hub-unit is a Wall Street dude and that is where his heart (and paycheck) is LOL.
Remount Rd!! ok I have the general area in mind now! I lived on the South Side - just south of 51. That school system (meck county) had the best music/performing arts program I have ever seen.
Someday I want to go back!!
