Not really. 330K, 2400 square feet, very solid school district.

I said Dallas, in my first post.

100 years ago. I wonder if anyone ever thought these four cities would be as similar across the spectrum as they are? They are hundreds of miles apart, in different settings, different states, different time zones, different climates, but are still more similar than dissimilar. Lol.
I don't really see the similarities between Atlanta or Miami and the Texas two, or even between those two. Only thing I can think of is there are Southern sprawly cmmetros that exploded in population around the same decades. I don't know about Atlanta, but Houston and Dallas/Dallas-Fort Worth consider each other as rivals and peers and not so much Atlanta (and Miami) which is notably smaller and farther despite its media profile. At least, they don't see Atlanta as a peer any more so than other metris like Phoenix, Chicago (which is mostly one sided, Chicago is much larger), Minneapolis, Charlotte, Seattle, or Nashville

I think we have to define popularity.

If we’re talking about which city has more pop culture appeal, then Atlanta is most popular and the other two aren’t even close.

If we’re talking about which city is most popular on the international stage, Houston. It’s much more international than the other two.

If we’re talking about which city is most popular economically, Dallas. The Dallas housing market and corporate relocation appeal are white hot.

Is there really such a thing as "economic popularity"? Lol

It would be naive to think there isnít. Which city is growing the most jobs? Which city is most popular with corporate relocations?

The word "popularity" typically isn't used in that context so that's why I asked the question. At any rate, none of these cities are "economically unpopular" so there's that.

Nah, the kids will be fine. All you learn from Atlanta's sound is how to whip and nae-nae.

True, but one stands out among the other two and that is objectively Dallas.
