“Avoid on weekends”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

Rescue mission or church or something feeds the homeless, it gets pretty bad. Many of the homeless could use the help, some can be confrontational and a bit entitled, but the place is packed with homeless on the days that the churches put out food and sunsequently lots of litter and trash is left around.

“Be careful”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

Beautiful place... but be careful. The bulk of my time in this area was honestly to do mission work for the homeless.

“Run Off The Bums And This Would Be A Fine Place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

Moore Square, one of Raleigh's original squares, could be a lovely area. Instead, our spineless city government (this means you, former Mayor Charles Meeker) handed it over to the local bum population. The situation's not helped by a homeless shelter directly across the street.

“During events, yes. Any other time, no.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2011

Sketchy area unless there is an event. If you want to visit the city market (across the street) it is nice. This is one of the very few areas of downtown Raleigh we just pass by.
