LOL @ this because it's not the first time I've heard it.
I think it's fairly typical for an insular city with little incursion from outsiders.

Not at all.

I live in NKY. The state tax is 6% and property is 1.2%.

I send my kids to private school because public schools are not good where I live.

Dallas prop tax is 2.2% and I'm able to get some homestead exemptions. Sending kids to public.

Net net I'm way better off in Dallas in terms of tax.

I think a big difference is that cities that receive very few migrants and immigrants (which Cincinnati does), you have the same people around for generations. Its easier for it to be that way. In Dallas, you have a city and metro area that is chalk full of domestic migrants and international immigrants. That makes it harder to be insular.

Yes, the high-growth cities tend to dilute the long-term residents.

Dallas is a high growth city by design, not accident. The Dtate and people work tirelessly and sacrifice a lot to keep it growing. It's that Teaxan Go-getter attitude.

Cincinnati has an Oh-Well'er attitude. The Bengals won't fire Marvin Lewis despite his performance.

Having said all that, I am very saddened to leave Cincy. I've lived here for 16 years. I have nothing but fond memories. I leave behind amazing friends and relationships. I'll miss this city a lot. The city has treated me very well, in every way. I will forever be grateful to Cincy and Northern KY.

As I make my move to Dallas the end of this month, I'm reminded of this song:

What a wonderful day, to lose it all. To lose it all.
What a wonderful way, to choose to fall. To choose to fall.
It's all for the best, for all I know.
What a way to go!!

Which has better year-round weather? For me, a tie
Which has friendlier people? Again, a tie
Which has less traffic? Cincinnati
Which has the better economy? Dallas
Which has a lower cost of living? Cincinnati

I love both cities, actually. I'll give an ever-so-slight edge to Cincinnati.

To clarify, Cincinnati's economy may not be growing anywhere near as fast as Dallas, but it is growing, and certainly not shrinking.

Plus I think it's almost undeniable at this point that the legacy cities are experiencing a re-emergence as many millennials seem to be eschewing the Sunbelt lifestyle.

I think you mean suburban lifestyle in general. Millennials have actually been urbanizing sunbelt cities. The city of Dallas is not growing due to prototypical "sunbelt" characteristics. It's building up in terms of density and walkability.

Yes, that would be more accurate.
