Hehe. Besides, if the natives do complain, it's probably the transplants' fault anyway, right?

I like it down here, and I like the fact that Atlanta is different from the Twin Cities where I grew up. That makes it more interesting for me.

Incorrect, the powers that be created both white flight and gentrification. The New Powers (Environmentalist) want a different lifestyle that people in a certain class can benefit from. Is it a conspiracy? Nope it is done in the face of the poor. If you have no money, you have no say. Urban Planners everywhere are now getting involved in the trend, the information is out there, if the poor don't make the decision to adjust then they have to suffer. Truth.

Saying "i hate transplant" Is like saying you hate foreigners...The city doesn't belong to anyone, anyone & everyone can move to Atlanta Metro if they like. If don't like transplants, foreigner or visitors you better off living on the moon lol. Major Cities have transplants, from New York, Los Angeles, Chicago & Phillly. They all have transplants.

I halfway agree with LovinDecatur on ATL being in the Northeast. See, it's all about where in the NEast; Atlanta would be just another city if it were NYC and D.C. but I think it would stand out fine if it were in Maine to compete with that New England heavyhitter. Overall, I think Atlanta's too good for Georgia and doesn't fit in anymore. It was already mentioned that we'd thrive in the DMV (preferably VA) region and I think that idea is spot on.

I am there with you on that note!

I don't doubt that Atlanta has its good points, but besides the nice weather and affordable housing...there seems to be something missing. I am curious to see if other people can nip it in the bud.

You are so right. I actually feel safer in the NE. I don't recall hearing about home invasions, car jacking, truck jackings, bank armed robberies! It's crazy down here!

Doraville is not a Chinatown, it's a Koreatown!
