murrayjm1950 (researched this town Within the last 5 years and is considering moving here):


Rome looks to be a beautiful spot to live but am somewhat concerned about the crime level. Seems to be very high. Any knowledge on this would be appreciated. Also, how is it in terms of starting a small business until retirement?
