What do I need to know about living in Columbus?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Columbus, they said:

"The area is undergoing a negative shift in the local economy. The lower income areas are growing rapidly. People who have the opportunity are trying to move farther away from central Ohio. Public transportation is not easy to large portions of Franklin County making owning a car extremely important. Because of gas prices, of lower incomes can no longer get to work if they are not on the public bus and close to a bus stop. There is also growing crime at these bus stops making them unsafe in many areas," remarked another expat living in Columbus, US.
