Sby is, objectively, NOT a good place to live. Racism is rampent, and race relations are contentious (a direct lineage of the plantation system in the area). Salisbury University is disconnected from the community. Poverty, unemployment, and crime are high. The place is also environmentally hazardous, with mega-chicken farms dominating the rural areas (on hot summer days, one can REALLY smell this!). Relatedly, there is little to no open land (trees, parks, etc.). There is no entertainment or nightlife to speak of, no food co-ops, no local grocery—all of which seems odd given the size of the city and it’s proximity to larger metropolitan areas like DC & Philly. I wish there was some redeeming quality, but honestly, the city’s quality of life is very bad. There is no social solidarity or community feel in the area, only conflict and division. Trust me: if you have the option, do NOT live here.
