Speaking as a native NYer recently relocated, there are numerous good pizza places here in Charlotte. Now "good bakeries", how about finding me "a bakery"?????

True. I hope the native North Carolineans/Charlotteans aren't scared away by northerners wanting to change Charlotte to reflect a place they left previously.

Other than adding a few good pizza and bagel joints though.

I find all this talk about water hilarious considering NY and NJ have notoriously polluted water.

BTW NJ's own Community WaterWatch states that:
Quote:
Over 85 percent of the water made available to us is too polluted to drink or use for recreational purposes. Today, 70 percent of New Jerseyans who obtain drinking water from surface water supplies do so from waters too contaminated by bacteria even to permit swimming. We all live or go to school on the East Coast. As inhabitants of New Jersey, we vacation or reside near the shore and are surrounded by bodies of water - bodies of water from which we can not drink. We cannot depend on local water companies to clean our water for us, filtration of polluted water does not remove all toxins or impurities. When we drink New Jersey water we are placing our health at risk. Our polluted waters have taken control of our lives and we, as students and residents of New Jersey, must take control.
Ok

Oh and BTW, the EPA is forcing NY to clean up it's act as stated in a press release from 11-15-07.

Quote:
EPA signed an agreement with New York City under which the city will spend approximately $900 million to build an ultraviolet disinfection facility to treat the drinking water from the Catskill and Delaware system by end of August 2012 and provide increased public health protection for approximately 7 million people

“New Yorkers can count on our continued vigilance in enforcing EPA regulations when action is needed,” EPA Regional Administrator Alan J. Steinberg said. “Complying with environmental law isn’t jut the right thing to do--- it’s the backbone of our mission to protect people’s health and the environment.”

THAT'S why the dough tastes so good, LOL!!

The nation's largest city can continue using the nation's largest unfiltered drinking water supply, the Environmental Protection Agency told New York City today.

Great cut and paste job. The water is still filthy. But I am not going to derail this thread, so if you want to argue water quality, start a new thread. You asked where I got the idea that the water (which supposedly makes the dough yummy) is dirty in NJ or NY, and I answered your question. However, we should not change the topic of the thread.

I had posted here that there are good places to eat diner food here in Charlotte. Well, I just got back from visiting family in NJ. I must have forgotten the whole "diner expereience" LOL! Oh my goodness, I had the best omelette and hash browns in my life a few days ago-complete with NY attitude! (good to be home, though )

I don't think it's about trying to Northernize Charlotte to be happy about a diner coming to town. I was just as disappointed in NJ not being able to order sweet tea. And my daughter was bummed that she couldn't have grits with her breakfast. I think if a Southerner moved to NY/NJ and couldn't get any of those items, or a real BBQ, he/she would be just as excited if a place serving authentic Southern food opened up.
