Hardly man. Open your eyes....It is my opinion, I certainly have been to both and Rochester has a very dense core of NE style old neighborhoods surrounding the immediate downtown area ..Birminghan does not.

Truly, what is it with Atlanta insecurity on CD? Miles ahead of everyone in the South (excluding TX and FL), and still Atlantans are largely insecure on this site.

It's pretty unfair to lump all Atlantans in the same boat here. The vast majority aren't anti-Birmingham; it's the same usual suspect(s) that pop up over and over.

True enough. You're one of the sane. I just glanced over his recent posts. A considerable number aimed at Birmingham, making completely ridiculous statements. Something unpleasant involving Birmingham befell the guy at some point in his life. He shows up in almost every Bham thread. He's more regular than some of our regulars.

Birmingham will surprise if given a look:

Both cities have roughly the same population, but Rochester is 35.8 square miles and Birmingham is 146 square miles. So, Rochester has a more dense built environment.

As far as the metros are concerned, probably. I'm unfamiliar with metro Roc so I'll take your word for it. But as far as downtown density is concerned, I don't know how anyone can say Rochester is denser than Bham. It's fairly obvious on its face . . .

Speaking the truth, which you cannot, because you my friend are insecure about BHAM. Don't drag me into this because it is not necessary. Calling someone sane on here is like calling Bull Conner a host at an NAACP meeting.

No, that is in regards to the city limits. Rochester has as many people within a land size that is a fourth of Birmingham's land size.

Here are some pictures of the ROC skyline from a city park: Cobbs Hill Park - Rochester Wiki

Does Birmingham have any other parts of the city that have nightlife/walkability/businesses, etc outside of its Downtown?
