Bruh I live in Salisbury, and it's actually a nice a*s place. It is kinda run down, but it has its charm. Rt 13 is where all of the rough neighborhoods are... but guess what- Johnson's pond is in the hood and it's the best fishing spot in town. I fish there off the dam all the time and I strike up casual conversation with the people who live around there all the time, with no danger of being shot or mugged. And I'm a white middle class dude! Salisbury is not a bad place at all and the folks there are really nice. Only problem is taxi cab drivers are insane but that's really it. The suburbs are really nice and schools are great. Open roads allow you to just cruise and go wherever you please. Salisbury is a city but in reality it's the worlds biggest small town. Everybody knows everybody

Oh h**l no I live in Salisbury and it is the best place to live ever but otherwise it is amazing. There is a one in one hundred chance to be robbed.

I moved to salisbury from central nj a few years ago, man what a step down that was.

5 years here, we bought a house in Delmar and are excited to finally get out of here

I've been called a cracker and a homeboy. I used to work for dish, so I went into a lot of customers homes. That job really opened my eyes to how people live down here. I had a customer come home from jail whole doing work and he proceeded to smoke crack with his family.

This place is disgusting, if it weren't for my gfs great job, we would have moved by now.
