Ok, let me preface this querey with a few very important disclaimers

1. This is NOT a troll thread. I am being 100% earnest and genuine when I tell you all that I -want- to move to whichever city the answer turns out to be(majority will hopefully have it)

2. I am not interested in being politically or socially correct for my purposes in this forum, I am however, keenly intent on being respectful. So, if you happen to be some proper type who wants to cast stones at me for wanting to go to said city, please, refrain from leaving any obvious and ill-fated comments. To each their own. Maybe some people would like to take the road less traveled rather than the: " where's the best, coolest, awesomest, chicest, hippest, -in- city to live now???? "


In short, please..PLEASE only respond here if you have an ANSWER to the specific question. I'm not interested in arguing my finer points that do hold true despite my question to a bunch of strangers.

I'm truly interested to find the city with the biggest "brain drain" going on to live in for perhaps a period of a few years. The only things I'm looking for are a decent-sized population and at least some discernable element of public trans. That's it. Let's just say all other living factors will be manageable for me, and leave it at that so I am not inundated with questions about the details of my living requirements.


Thank you all in advance for sharing your knowledge and personal experiences here, and I hope many of you have been to multiple major cities, and can really finger the one with the biggest brain drain going on right now.

Thanks folks.

Dayton, OH has a bus system, if that's enough transit for you.

Yep, can't get much more brain-drain than Dayton right now. Heck, I from Dayton, have wanted to live in the city proper my entire life, and now I'm even convinced it is a very bad place to be a young professional (although it is excellent for newly-weds, young families, etc.)

There are many states within the mid west that have experience a brain drain, with articles written specifically because of that concern. Two major cities I can think of are Detroit and Cleveland. Smaller cities like Akron and Youngstown, are also not doing well with attracting college graduates.

Duas grande cidades e Detroit e Cleveland.
