Downtown Houston cannot compete with downtown New Orleans. Not even the least bit.

Awesome pic, awesome post. Pittsburgh's skyline is truly epic.

Have you even been to New Orleans?

It's easily one of the most vibrant downtowns in the country.

Yes I stayed with my Aunt last summer, and we strolled around downtown. Also I lived in Houston, and have been downtown numerous times, also Dallas as well. In my opinion, New Orleans isn't as good as either, and far more ghetto looking.

Ghetto Looking?

Sure New Orleans has more older buildings but those condos you see in the Warehouse District and French Quarter are probably way out of your price range and are anything BUT.

Anyways while Downtown Houston and Dallas have improved, they still don't compare with the vibrancy and street level activity of New Orleans. Anyone who has actually been to both cities will attest to that.

New Orleans does have more vibrancy and activity. But as far as how nice it is, activities, entertainment, structural appeal, etc.. I like Dallas and Houston a little bit more. Just because there's no people there doesn't mean the downtown isn't great, lol.

No, Minneapolis does not belong above Philadelphia or LA. I've never been to New Orleans, but from what I've gathered, Minneapolis doesn't belong above New Orleans either. I've only been through Baltimore a few times (never stopped in the city), so I don't really know, but you might have a point there. But as for the other cities I listed, you need to fix your list, especially in the case of Philadelphia. Have you ever been to Philadelphia? I'm guessing you haven't. I think you have a bad case of "homerism."
