Except he didn't do that and that's pretty clear; he said they are considered a bit podunk compared to their coastal counterparts, and he's right. You're taking it personally.

Just wondering why Omaha (an example used) would be podunk, let's say, compared to a city that size in California, or in New York.

I'm guessing he didn't really mean their actual counterparts but rather the major coastal population centers. And some would consider the actual counterparts of those cities to be podunk in a sense. That doesn't make it true whatsoever but that's the oftentimes the perception. Even Chicago--CHICAGO--gets that type of flack at times.

Personally the easiest way to find a city without gentrification is too find a city were the crime stats from the 90's till now has either barely dropped (accounting for population), or slightly increased. I'm not sure it is possible to find many major cities were this is true though.

San Antonio's urban core is seeing a lot of gentrification in some of its older neglected areas and Almost 8,000 residential units have been built in the core in the past couple years with thousands more planned or under construction. There is also major civic developments that are on a massive scale under construction.


It is definitely not all suburban growth.

Baltimore has gentrified somewhat, but I'm curious to see what the Freddie Gray riots will to do this trend. A large amount of suburbanites in the Baltimore region have always avoided the city even before the riots.

If DC is the poster child for gentrification, then that means simply pushing the crime and violence out into he suburbs. Most Baltimore area residents are wary of this and would rather the slums stay where they are.

You're speaking as if the riot just happened, it has been over two years, and as you can tell by the amount of development going on around that city, that Baltimore has moved passed the riot. People aren't avoiding the city now it seems. You'll catch people out and about all times of day in the city, including suburbanites. Actually, even in areas where the riots took place (near Mondawmin) have developments planned.

Pittsburgh is most dedinitely in the process of gentrifying. I should know as a low-income renter here. Most of the Pittsburgh regulars on here have comfortable salaries and/or are homeowners, so they're insulated from it.
