I'm glad to have people from up north moving here. I'm sure if I moved there I would still brag about Atlanta and I don't take offense to them having pride for their home. I'm sure some can be rude about it. I have never dealt with that though. Everyone here is the descendant of a transplant anyways. We shouldn't generalize the newer ones. I happen to like the way they have changed our city.

The thread is steering toward sarcastic personal attacks - we do not discuss other members here, and, do not make blanket statements to incite reactions from the group as a whole for the sake of it, please!

Thank you

People moving here from elsewhere is literally the definition of Atlanta. 150 years ago we weren't much more than a crossroads. Soon folks soon started coming from all over, and they keep on coming.

This topic is beating a dead horse anyway.

I'm wondering if those complaining about the complainers ever considered the fact that there are more than just northerners moving to Atlanta. I, myself, am from Savannah.

Atlanta certainly has some good attributes but honestly this place ain't my cup 'o tea. I prefer the big city of New York and hope to move there soon. Pedestrian friendly, transit that goes far, high density, high diversity (I have a thing for Latinas & Asians ) Yes, I do know Atlanta, specifically Gwinnett does have a good number of them as well as certainly pedestrian friendly, high density areas. Nothing beats NYC though.

Not complaining btw, just saying it doesn't fit me personally. On that note, be kind natives.

If you look at that map at the bottom of the screen and scroll down to the tab that says percentage of people from out of state. Now, a large percentage of the criminals that are out here committing the violent crimes in this region come from various neighborhoods on the western and southern areas of Atlanta. Now if you play around with that map and click on areas around that area, you will notice that those areas have a very low percentage of people who were born out of this state. Now, if you scroll to some of the suburbs that are to the north of the city, and Fayette and Henry Counties, you will notice that there are a high amount of transplants, with many areas being over 50%. Even in the wealthier parts of Cascade Rd have a pretty healthy amount of transplants, and if you haven't noticed, many of these suburbs with the higher number of transplants are pretty safe and usually when there is a violent crime, many times they travel from some of the areas with a lower number of transplants. Also, your argument about the pollution is wrong as well, studies have shown that over the past few years, we have been having less and less smog alerts.

Atlanta wouldn't be **** without those transplants anyway. They contribute to the economy. Stop complaining. No one know of Atlanta from the 80s anyway LOL. Atlanta only got truly popular after the Olympics.
