ok houses are cheaper in atl but that is it.ok i give you hip hop club stuff but i am too old for that. but if you want a reasonable price house and willing to drive 20-25 miles from downtown you can get a house in seattle area but you will not be buying in the city just folks are not buying homes in the atl itself unless they got bucks.

You do realize that Atlanta had one of the highest increases of people moving into the core over the last 10 years right?Seattle is ok but the weather sucks.Not to mention it cost more to live in Seattle than Atlanta by a long shot.I have family from Bellvue and they LOVE it here now.Not that Seattle was bad,it was just not what they wanted.Same reason Seattle does not appeal to me for various reasons.

Your assessment of the situation is almost as incorrect as your grammar. Almost.

The fire in Atlanta isn't really that remarkable considering New Orleans and Chicago (and London) plus other cities were far bigger than Atlanta when they burned. Atlanta was a very small place during the time of the civil war (and was only about 22,000 and 30 yrs away from its founding).

I do wish my hometown had more respect for its historical architecture, especially places like Underground which could be fixed, but aren't due to poor governance. However I am hopeful.

It's time for Atlanta to decide on whether or not it will extend it's rail or get LRT. More people will love Atlanta once it gets transportation alternatives.
Until the ENTIRE region works together and pays for truly regional transit agency transit will not happen. I do think Keith Parker will turn MARTa around.

I'm sorry, I do not agree. As a former resident of Los Angeles and New York City....this city is trying so very hard, but not cutting it. I've never felt the way I do here, you can cut race tension with a knife, and never in my life did I feel that till I moved to the South. Local government is not to be trusted, education system is horrible, I could go on and on....oh yes, and don't worry, I'm trying to leave, soon enough.

...depending on how it's proportioned, that is not always a bad thing.

Atlanta has its issues for sure, but don't conflate that with the entire (urban) South.
