It's really concentrated in north City, you are relatively safe in the south side of the city. The burbs are very safe for the most part.

For proof against that:


YouTube - Midtown Atlanta
Conservative and backwards, no.

Suburban Oriented, yes.

No Soul, meh...Toss up.

Just my two cents. I lived there for a little under a year. Not a bad place at all.

Now how in the world do you get "suburban oriented" from that video clip? Or are you just giving your opinion in general? Usually people who have the misconception of Atlanta being suburban lived in/experienced the suburbs - not the city. The city isn't suburban oriented.

Just in case you don't remember, here is the corner AND the restaurant where the video takes place - Flying Biscuit.

I figured that's what you were saying after rereading your post. I can see how you would think that Atlanta is suburban living in Buckhead. Parts of Buckhead are suburban-like, but I wouldn't actually go so far as to say they are completely suburban when compared to the actual suburbs.

Drive down Piedmont South of Lindbergh. Anywhere you go a block off piedmont are ranch style homes with non gridded streets, very suburban.

Just look east of Piedmont Park, drive through there and tell me it doesnt look like a suburb.

Its not necessarily a bad thing, it wasnt my style but thats cool. Compared to other large cities in the U.S., Atlanta is very suburban.

That the City of Miami is a large City in area,it is not,as it is only 36 square miles,the smallest big city in the country but it has a high density population(400,000+). Miami Metro-Dade consists of an area of over 1900 square miles with a population of 2,500,000 as Dade County consist of 38 independent municipalities.
