YIKES...




Compared to LA, there are NO 'major' cities in the Northeast except New York. The rest are all smallish and cute by comparison, especially DC(what a cutie pie)

LOL....do you have a picture of the population density in New Delhi too? Population density has nothing to do with the feel of a neighborhood. The design does. You can have the ghetto though.

Seriously guys, who gives a crap about density in the context of this thread? You're just burying posts that are on topic with your junk.

With the exception of homeless people in Skid Row(which many major US cities have an area like), none of those areas are that bad.

Have you been to D.C? It's clean. Buildings that are supposed to be white are white. There isn't a whole bunch of trash all over the street. The buildings in that area look old and run down. They need a power wash. And look at all those cheap knockoff stores. If you need to still pull down a steel gate when you close, odds are the neighborhood is ratchet.

I don't really about care about how clean the streets are in commercial areas...but that doesn't area even look that dirty to me. Who cares? Have you ever been to Paris? There's dogs--t all over the streets. Naples, Italy is one of my favorite cities in Europe and that place is a mess... Hong Kong is worldclass in parts and parts of it are a dense chaotic mess.

Those cheap stores are great--last time I was in downtown LA I bought like 5 pairs of socks and a couple t-shirts for $5 at one of them... It was almost enough to offset the four $15 martinis I had at the bar at the Biltmore later in the afternoon... I like that downtown LA is sort of funky and a mix in parts--it's more interesting than the chain restaurants and tourist joints somewhere like Times Square. There's interesting old architecture all over the place and it still feels sort of working class Latino. With the old buildings there's a lot of opportunities for gentrification, but hopefully it doesn't end up another generic area with Bubba Gump Shrimp Company and TGIFs and that sort of thing...

This thread has gone way off topic. If you wish to discuss things like population density, you need to go to the Urban Planning forum. This thread is now closed.
