This isn't even on topic but I'm done talking about it. Clearly we see cities differently.

Tallahassee, Savannah, Charleston, Aiken, Rome, and Asheville, for example are pretty cities.

Valdosta has its blight too but to me Valdosta is pretty.

Thomasville, GA is way smaller than Valdosta but is beautiful beyond comparison, though the superiority attitudes of the residents there kind of leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

No city is without bad areas, but if your bad areas look worse than your good areas look good, your city is not pretty in my eyes.

So yeah maybe some of you like a little mud in your water. Fine with me, but MY opinion of pretty ain't changing.
Outside of the campus of VSU, I have never EVER heard anybody call Valdosta "pretty"' -- EVER! And that includes people from Valdosta!

Columbus might be blighted but it's far from being ghetto.

Trust me, Lowndes County esp south of Valdosta and around Lake Park is highly trashy.

But Valdosta isn't that bad IMHO.

It's no Thomasville but it's not Albany either.

I don't purposely put myself or my loved ones intentionially in harms way if there's no reason to. if they treat the place they live with with such disrespect I can't imagine feeling comfortable walking around, or even leaving my car parked somewhere without worrying of what might happen. So you can go ahead and get to know these areas better...more for you.
I'm curious.. What area did you go to where there was grafitti, windows busted out and crumbling buildings? Also, WHY?

There may be less desirable areas in close proximity to Savannah's historic district, but I smell a bit of exaggeration.

Also, Savannah IS a living, breathing, working city. Not some museum. Let's keep that in mind.
