I think what makes Dallas unique is the diversity. I think Atlanta is a great city but it is just dominated by black and white americans. Sometimes I want to walk outside my door and see something other than my race. Dallas nightlife is definitely underrated and Atlanta nightlife is very overrated and most out of towners will agree. This image that Hip-Hop offers of Atlanta is not Atlanta at all. Which I personally think is a good thing. Just my opinion, but both cities have their good and bad.

I've been to both Atlanta and Dallas for nightlife and as far as nightlife go in the hip hop scene, Atlanta nightlife is much better. Dallas seemed a little slower at night IMO.

That's because Dallas nightlife is more spread out while Atlanta's is pretty much centrally located. But Atlanta's nightlife is still a bit better though.

Only been to Atlanta. Really tough choice as they're both close cities. I'd have to learn more before I picked. And if I did it would be by a hair.

The streets in most of those pictures seem empty for daytime downtown.

Love the overhead shot, 7th from last. Looks so, visceral. Kind of like downtown LA in Collateral for some reason. And the orange church like building.

That is the old red courthouse.

Today the courthouse is now a museum.

It depends like after 5:00 downtown is empty because people are getting off of work and they are going home.

No offense, but if you really wanted to impress everyone you would've shown pictures of Uptown Dallas. The high concentration of housing and businesses in a dense, pedestrian-friendly, midrise scale really makes for an excellent urban environment (let's not forget about the McKinney streetcar also ). It's also one of the areas of Central Dallas where you wil see people walking all hours of the day--thus diminishing the auto-oriented stereotype of Sunbelt cities.
