Probably because it has morphed from giving opinions to assist the OP in his decision of which city to move to into a general thread about the advantages and disadvantages of each city. Where else are you going to find a comparison of such two distinct cities as Houston and Portland, OR?

Portland.

Portland isn't worth the hype, but I mean Houston is in TEXAS.

Houston is definately more diverse but I'd take Portland's weather any day over Houston's.

I've lived in both, and definitely prefer Portland, but more for personal reasons than anything else. That's not to say I didn't have any good experiences in Houston, I just don't care to live there, mostly due to heat and car culture.

I prefer Houston as it is a very high-tech, and advanced metropolis with lots of internationalism, a rich, Gulf Coastal culture, a nice, sunny subtropical location.

Just wanted to point out that Houston is partially in a massive pine forest and the inner loop is covered with large live oak trees. Can't really speak for outside 610 but saying that Houston is mostly treeless is dead wrong.
