No one said those cities were "better."

You don't have to actually say it...it comes through in your misinformed posts loud and clear.

What's with the "us" and "we" in all your posts.

Putting places like Dallas and Atlanta and Denver in the same breath in a thread about "urbanity" as places like Boston and Chicago and New York is ludicrous. It doesn't make places like Dallas and Atlanta and Denver any less great of places to live. If some of you associate yourself with how "urban cool" you think the place you live in then you need to grow a pair. Frankly I'd much rather live in Denver or Atlanta than New York City or Boston ANY day of the week. Doesn't mean they are "urban" in the same sense though.

I have been to all of those cities and lived in three of them. That's what happens when you used to be a travelling DJ. Yes, Atlanta and Dallas's "urban" areas are less dense and more suburban than many of Chicago and New York's actual suburbs. That's the problem. Some people are getting all hung up on words and not the actual realities.



Just like McDonald's and Morton's Steakhouse are both called "restaurants" I guess.
Yep, I guess those are what have kept Houston having one of the best restaurant scenes in the country.

I agree. What does that have to do with that post.

"Us" - the people you are trying to argue with but no one is really interested in you. Your arguments don't display any real knowledge of the places you're trying to discuss.

Does urban have more that one "sense"? I thought it had one meaning...

Well if you aren't interested then why are you even responding.

This was your response to Lovindecatur about the food scene in Atlanta, Houston, Denver, etc

You must have memory loss because this wasn't that long ago.
