What places would you get rid of in your city? What places don't you like? If you could put something else in it's place, what would it be?

For the city I am thinking of, I would get rid of our huge mall. I'd keep the movie theater and in place I'd put a plaza, restaurants, offices, and apartments. I'd also get rid of the JcPenney's. I'd get rid of our strip club. I'd get rid of the 2 new Wal-Mart Markets that opened, and the Wal-Mart too. I'd get rid of Chuck E Cheese.

Yes, the current trend in the 21st century is away from enclosed shopping malls, and instead toward outdoor "Lifestyle" shopping centers with winding paths, fountains, and benches. Also, movie theaters with fewer, but reclinable seats, with plenty of leg room to walk between rows.

Baltimore, MD needs to relocate its city Jail, located right downtown. Some cities are plagued by noisy, downtown expressways that serve to cut off neighborhoods from each other - such as I-95 near the Philadelphia waterfront. Boston, MA recently buried its expressway underground. Seattle, WA is removing its "Alaskan Way" viaduct downtown. Alexandria, VA is shutting down its coal-fired power plant.

The homeless, the filth, the trash that litters the streets and the subways, the horrible smells, the overcrowding, the heat and humidity...

In Baton Rouge I would get rid of the corruption, the I-110 bridge that cut's off downtown from Mid-City, I would get rid of much of the sprawl, and the oppressive heat.

The negative attitude of some of the people, the indecisiveness about I-81 in between Downtown and University Hill, the lack of vision in terms of moving forward, the crime in some neighborhoods and the some aspects of the educational system.

I'd get rid of all the govt. housing. Time to stick a knife in this cruel, massively failed agenda.

The trend in movie theaters will be alcohol and higher quality food service. Affordable, high quality home theater set-ups + internet + Hollywood's terrible recent offerings = dying theater industry. Recliners and leg room both found at home will not save them.

Sure would be nice if people actually mentioned what city they are discussing.
Would make a more interesting discussion.

Yes I did notice the rise in some theaters offering alcohol. I don't ever see the movie theater dying but just evolving. Younger generations are still it's biggest market
