Good for nothin' SOB's....
Hey, leave NJ out of this!!!!!! Oh I'm from Central Jersey so none of this applies to me.

Ani, that nickname has always belonged to Miami, so maybe Charlotte will be referred to as NYC's 7th burrough.

ah gee whiz.. you guys are so welcoming. I just live the title post "you're not going to like this, but.." Real nice!

For a lot of people, it's cheaper to live in an unemployment situation here in NC than it is to stay in NY unemployed.. so it might not be that they're coming for the jobs/lack of jobs. Ever look at it like that?

I did. Part of my theory.See my responses .As far as your comment "real nice", understand that CLT now needs to support you (city services, infrastruture etc.) so, my OP title "you're not going..." is relevant. Yes I am thinking...a little too much lately. LOL

Nope, the sixth burrough was a nickname given by New Yorkers themselves. Miami Beach is Israel's second city.
