Top: inner city Atlanta, Bottom: inner city Houston


Top: suburban Philadelphia, Bottom: suburban New Orleans


If you feel like the pictures are bad representations find a more suitable area to look at.
All pictures were taking from the 150 yard scale on Bing maps.

The photo of Atlanta is certainly not of the inner city...I had never heard of Beecher Street, but looking on mapquest it's west of the the city near Westview and Cascade Heights neighborhoods.

I'm pretty sure there are neighborhoods in every city that are of various density. When I stated that Atlanta's density is higher than that of Dallas and Houston, I was talking about the overall density of the city - not a single neighborhood.

What's definition of inner city?
That is a residential neighborhood inside of the city limits and even the perimeter right?

Tell me where to look and I'll go find a more accurate representation.

I don't know where to tell you to look...you found the others pretty easily.

I just took a look at the aerial view and found what looked to be average pace of development in the city.

That photo of Houston was "average"? Come on...

And there is no way that those suburban photos were average suburbs. There is plenty of low-density sprawl around both of those cities that you could have posted.

Please tell me where there is low density sprawl around New Orleans? Philly maybe. You can see for yourself with any mapping website with an aerial view. Either way my point is made and I'm done...

Americans are always looking for a way to fit a nice label to everything, as evidenced by this thread and many others. Why? Give it up friends, "cities" have different meanings for different folks, I really don't care if you think my city is real or fake. The perception of "my" cities and the many others I've visited is formed by my own experiences and interactions in those places...we are all (including myself at this point) wasting our breath...

...or is your point done and you're made? Hmmm...

So, you're trying to say that there isn't any low density sprawl around New Orleans? Okay...sure.

Some typical residential neighborhoods from Atlanta. Note, these are the highest populated neighborhoods:

Part of South Midtown (about half of SOUTH Midtown is cut out of the picture):



Part of Virginia Highlands (same as above)



West End (about 1/4 of the total neighborhood):



I could go on all day, but there are literally too many neighborhoods in the city to show.
