Mobile , Alabama

Are these considered southern urban grit ? I believe that we have pockets of it through out the city of Mobile.

I don't consider any of the pictures of Mobile as being particularly "gritty" and that is a compliment from me. I do not understand this obsession with some of the run-down and filthy. These pictures do included some older urban buildings, but they seem to be in good condition and be on clean streets. There are even glimpses of my favorite thing about the South: greenery!

I'm surprised no one brought up Louisville, KY or Covington, Newport, Bellevue, Bromley KY. Lot's of dense, older housing in those cities neighborhoods that look somewhat decayed but in a very attractive, urban looking way. Like, outside of New Orleans, Richmond, and Alexandria. Louisville and other towns in northern KY are honestly the next best thing the south has to offer in terms of urban feels before everything goes to **** south of it, AKA the sunbelt right below it. And then New Orleans is really the only great city in the sunbelt section.

You have a lot to learn about the South apparently. And where are these gritty parts of Alexandria?
