Philly has a whopping 2 votes. I think Philly is ok in regard to this poll.

Because ATL homers boast about their airport numbers as it has to do with the city itself proping it up as some travel mecca.

So a city is overrated because it's residents like to brag about their city? In that case, every other city is overrated.

Bragging about a city is fine if the numbers back it up. In the case I mentioned, the numbers don't add up.

Isn't that the definition of overrated? People boosting more than they should instead of being humble and objective about their city?

Especially when the original poster "DAP443" who started this thread isn't a member of CityData anymore and hasn't posted anything on here since November 2008.

Who would be able to or have interest in adding cities to an almost 5-year-old poll? Hmm...

I actually think it is interesting to see if there have been any changes in people's opinions over the last five years.

I have no problems with the place. I can give it credit for what I believe it excels in but I don't hype it up for something it doesn't in (like being cosmopolitan for an example).

Although I admit, it's probably my least favorite American city because it isn't my style or fit for my personality or close to the environment I like to be in but I've liked seeing it regardless.

As for New Orleans, like Philadelphia it's been the center of discussion in this thread for the last 8 pages at least. My own opinion of the place is that I used to not be a fan of it growing up but these days I think it's quite an awesome city in it's own right. One of which I think is growing on me (rapidly). Stellar. Just waiting for it to cleanse out some of it's issues but these things happen day to day and not overnight, I think it'll do fine in the longterm.
