It's All about Midtown Now. No MSA's No CSA's No UA's Just Midtowns, or Uptowns. What's the Best Midtown or Uptown the South has to offer? The World needs to know

Based on
-1 Nearly Rivalling or Surpassing the Downtown of the same city (i.e. Midtown Manhattan rivals downtown Manhattan and has NYC's most famous attractions Like the Empire State Building, Broadway, Central Park etc) And 2 If Midtown or Uptown was placed in another city it would be THE DOWNTOWN of that city (i.e. if Buckhead Atlanta was dropped in Oklahoma City, It would be the Downtown of Oklahoma City, Or if Uptown Houston was placed in St Louis it would be the Downtown of St Louis)

-Midtown or Uptown that Rivals Downtown as the Cultural and Entertainment Hub
-Midtown or Uptown that if placed in another city would be THE DOWNTOWN of that city
-Midtown or Uptown full of Economic Development
-Midtown or Uptown that is Walkable and Dense

I hate to say, but the poll options seem a tad lazy, when you've named areas like the Gulch, Buckhead and "South of Congress" but opt for a generic "midtown" for other cities. I think you first have to define what areas you are referring to of each of these cities and some may not have a defined midtown or uptown at all. In Richmond, Midtown is Monroe Park/VCU and Uptown is "the Fan District," which happens to be the densest area of the city, more so than the CBD. And in Charlotte, Uptown is the "Downtown"/CBD and not that long ago people actually called it "Downtown."

I get your poll, but I think you're using the terms "uptown" and "midtown" too loosely, and you probably really mean center of activity beyond the CBD that rivals the CBD.

C'mon guys we don't have to be so technical, have city you want to mention that's not on the poll, mention it anyway. Something on the poll not quite right? Well just don't vote for it. Don't like the places mentioned, again just mention what would be a better fit.
