It is a city with a few pockets of very well to do areas, but there is also widespread poverty in El Paso. South Valley and Northeast El Paso are the poorer areas.

Unless I overlooked it, Albuquerque didn't even make the list, while both Tucson(#2) and El Paso both did!

Here is a neat vid of a takeoff from the Albuquerque International Sunport uploaded to YouTube yesterday. In the vid the plane takes off to the west on the main runway and turns to the northwest and flies over Downtown Albuquerque and the Westside. You catch glimpses of I-25, I-40 and the Big I, the Heights, the Sandia Mountains, the green of the North Valley and along the Rio Grande, and the subdivisions and developments along Coors Boulevard butting up toward the escarpment where the Petroglyph National Monument is located and ending over the Ventana Ranch area:

There are plenty of cities that are hotter than Tucson! Yuma, Bullhead City, Vegas, Phoenix, etc. Tucson is definitely up there but it definitely is not #2 so that ranking is inaccurate.

These are the best cities in order in my opinion:

1. Tucson, AZ
2. El Paso, TX
3. Albuquerque, NM

I'm just not a New Mexico fan.
