Albuquerque would qualify if it were just a bit bigger in population (which would also solve the congestion qualification). Otherwise, it is a match. It's a flat, hot grid. Much like a frying pan. And that ain't bacon you're smellin'!

No, no it's not. I grew up there and have a pretty good idea of what it's like. Largely outside of the initial development (pre-1960) which makes up more than half of the street infrastructure, it's a hodge-podge.

Yeah but overall it's somewhat grid-like enough. It qualifies as a giant, flat congested heat grid.

It doesn't matter how flat the basin is. If we were to judge a cities flatness by that criteria, than the only truly non-flat cities would SF, Pittsburgh, and Seattle. Those are the only 3 big cities that have steep/slanted terrain throughout their most urban cores, even in their more economically downtrodden areas. Almost every hilly city from Denver, Asheville, Charlotte, Austin, Atlanta, Nashville, have areas that are generally flat throughout. LA actually has Mountain Ranges running through the city, bisecting it into 2 valley's. And LA has numerous foothills to boot: Pasadena, Altadena, Bel Air, Beverly Hills, Northern Santa Monica, Baldwin Hills, View Park, Windsor Hills, City Terrace, Eagle Rock, Silver Lake, Los Feliz, Edendale, Atwater Village, basically the whole Northeast Los Angeles. Like, C'mon, is this flat?

1. Phoenix isn't flat or congested.

2. Was the point of this thread to bash Southern cities? It really looks like it.
