Third largest city in North Carolina, largest in Piedmont Triad region. It is home to Lorillard Tobacco, which makes Newport and Maverick cigarettes among others. Has really nice and really cruddy areas, and Wendover Avenue ain't no fun. Good bars and restaurants, shopping, has a water park, museums (ie Civil Rights Museum), an indoor shooting range near Market St/Friendly Ave, and an outdoor shooting range anywhere on South Elm-Eugene Street or Randelman Rd at night.
Passerby: Why are you always smoking Newport menthols?

The 78th largest city in the USA with about 250k people. Third largest city in North Carolina.
Formerly this city based their economy off of textiles, as the industry moved on Greensboro sustained itself through colleges. Greensboro has six colleges, and thus lots of young people. A growing town with a burgeoning downtown scene. Greensboro is growing and will continue to grow (in part) due to North Carolina's lax annexation laws.
A:I'm going to college in Greensboro!
B: Which college?
A: I'm not sure, I've got it narrowed down to: Guilford, UNCG, Bennett, A&T, or Greensboro College

According to "Men's Health Magazine" it's the 7th dumbest city in America. With nearly 6 colleges this shithole of a town hosts America's finest, from the 1 eyed cafeteria workers at UNC GREENSBORO, to the countless homeless people outside Wendy's!!!
Open a restaurant in Greensboro that sells Fried Chickin, Watermelon, and Collard greens, you'd be filthy Rich!

Literally everyone smokes crack or shoots heroin. Leading the state of North Carolina in shootings and homeless population. The only places this can be compared to is Durham, or Fayetteville with no military presence.
Somebody blacked my eye in Greensboro and took my shoes.
