That's why you guys are naming smaller cities, because you know Atlanta is regularly a place where you don't find Urban Grit. Ensley alone probably blows any neighborhood in Atlanta out the water; including Edgewood, LFP, and etc."

^I didn't once bring up Downtown Augusta, yet you kept on blabbering about it, posting examples of grit that literally proved my point that, 1. Most of the grit you're talking about in these smaller cities are mostly in the city center 2. There's not any decent examples of Atlanta's grit, so you move onto smaller Georgia cities.

The only decent examples posted so far in this thread were from Richmond, New Orleans, and Birmingham. The thread title says, "Gritty Urban Neighborhoods in the South," keyword neighborhoods. I posted examples of grit shown in distinct neighborhoods througout Birmingham.

I named smaller cities because you posted Streetviews of smaller city environments (non-CBD) lololol...nothing nefarious about that, plus they reminded me of Augusta and Macon. Atlanta wasn't even my first choice in this thread; I merely said it has some gritty areas and can be a bit grittier than one might think but New Orleans was my first choice. You should really know what people's actual positions are before you set up these strawmen to knock down.

Tell me Macon isn't Gritt City,.. I could go on and on..It's a southern city that does it well but must say the new loft boom has been changing things for the better especially downtown. Honestly though, I think it's no hope for the cities South side, it will remain in the Gritt. 2852 Napier Ave

Fixed that for you.

All you have shown in Birmingham is run of the mill abandonment and decay. That isn't grit, especially in this context.

You are still hellbent on portraying Birmingham as some paragon of Northeastern/Midwest grit, and it simply isn't. It's not even close.

Do you not see those links posted above for Macon? That's not Urban Grit, those links are exactly what we were talking about earlier in thread.

"To me the biggest difference is a gritty neighborhood implies an area which is run down, but still mostly intact. E.g., there may be tons of abandoned buildings, but there's not a lot of vacant lots. Perhaps most key, it's not a very green area. A lot of bad neighborhoods in the South seem to have a lot of grass and trees, which takes away from the gritty vibe, making it feel more rural/backwoodsy."

Those Macon links were POOR examples of Urban Grit; Hey, but that's what I get for going back and forth with Atlanta posters on what's Urban Grit or not. Surely the guy who lived in the Northeast (me) would know what Urban Grit looks like. *Rolls Eyes*

Have to be honest with u, Urban Gritt will not have the same definition in the North/Midwest bubby as it is in the South. Everyone knows that.. Being some one that knows the South and North well, Totally different but what is listed above is Southern Gritt.. I've seen areas of Gary, Indiana comparable to Macon, Ga. and please tell me Gary isn't Gritty.. The North as a whole is far more dense to compare and way less green..
