The whole "Bos-Wash" corridor. Fine to visit, but would not want to live in that. Well, Washington DC maybe. The rest, definitely not.

Well that is because Miami isn't a "Southern" city to begin with.

Major cities:

Portland- too granola and hippie, and dreary

Denver- too cold and isolated, and dull. Same with Salt Lake City

Phoenix- too dull and not cosmopolitan enough

Oklahoma City- too isolated and redneck

San Antonio- too lopsided in demographics

Detroit- too dangerous and past its prime

Minneapolis- too Northern and isolated and dull

Miami- too ghetto and too humid, people are nasty and too lopsided in demographics

Indianopolis/ Columbus/ Cleveland/ Cincinatti/ Buffalo- all too forgettable, rundown and dull

Baltimore/ Philadelphia- too dangerous and gritty and intense-feeling, and dirty for my liking

"Under any circumstance" sounds rather harsh and closed-minded.

But I'm not particularly excited about living anywhere other than Washington, D.C., New York City and Boston areas in the United States. These cities and their surrounding areas have everything I could possibly want for living.

I've been once before and know people who live there, and they all want to move out. It's VERY expensive, smog ridden, I remember I was sick the entire week I was there just because of how bad the air quality is (you can literally "taste" it), also saw a lot of homeless people. Never saw so many before aside from Hawaii, which surprisingly had a lot of homeless too (something they never mention in the tourist brochuers). It's also a HUGE city! It will take you multiple visits, or even if you lived there, and you still wouldn't even touch a fraction of the city. There are some really nasty parts too that you want to avoid at all costs, especially if you're white. You will also meet a lot of young people with dreams of being an actor/actress or model etc...and you will meet people who didn't succeed and are at the bottom of the barrel, often on drugs or other things. It's like one giant big rat race where people prey on each other
These two statements makes your generalization sound like histrionic nonsense.

I don't know if I would necessarily agree with that. Miami is very much a modern, cosmopolitan city with strong Latin/Caribbean overtones today, but Miami and the rest of South Florida still have very present Southern undertones. I understand the demographics argument, but Houston also has a strong Latin component and nobody argues that its not a Southern city.

Any city full of elitists! I am looking at you New York, DC, Chicago, LA, Boston, Philly. Also cities with hippies like SF, Portland and Seattle. To the south of me a storm brewing for quite some time and it smells like patchouli from all the Californians who have moved to my hometown of Dallas and infiltrating the great state of TX. Yankees have also infiltrated the southern cities of Atlanta and Charlotte, Texas, etc.

My, my....Such passionate and vocal words. And yet, as some of the Californians and some of us proud Yankees continue to "infiltrate" Texas, what exactly are you gonna do about it? Hmmmmm.....?
