We do have cities here, we all do not own a horse, we now have vehicles, we all do not dress in cowboy gear, most of us don't sound "country"

For Baltimore, some of it is correct, and I do agree, some are false. When the people say the whole city, except for the Harbor, is ghetto, that's false; when they say it isn't vibrant enough, I agree.

If you limit yourself to very little, without exploring, then you're going to have a very limited view. Before I moved to Phoenix, people had me believing I'd burst into flames by walking outside in the summer.

Also, setting foot in a city doesn't make a person an authority on every nook and cranny. Granted, they should comment about the parts they did experience, but no city/town is ever that simple to read.

I've learned an enormous amount on this forum. I'll admit users have given unique insight into cities I thought I knew.
Well, my experience with Phoenix was a very spread-out city with a lot of malls & strip-malls (which is true of most of the soutwest, including L.A.) and a chic but uppity an conservative area in Scottsdale. I enjoyed myself more on a day trip to Sedona. The southwestern cuisine in Phoenix was very good though.

It's pretty true these days; other than those in rent-controlled apartments, living four to a room (immigrants), and in projects/vagrant motels, the only people who can afford to live in S.F. are those techies.
