Poverty rates in Greenville and D.C. are strikingly similar at 16% and 19% respectively.

What aren't as similar are the income levels. And as a metro area, DC is going to be the more highly educated of the two.

Night all.

Greenville's cost of living is much lower than DC so looking at income is pretty irrelevant. I know for a fact there are companies in DC that pay less than companies in Greenville because I was looking in the DC area after I took the job in Frederick.

This is exactly how people live in NYC. I imagine there’s a good potion of people in a few other cities like Boston/Philly/DC/SF/Chicago/etc. that live like this too. A lot of Americans really cannot wrap their heads around this concept of not using a car everyday for everything.

Not a DC vs. Greenville topic.

I didn't introduce the topic. It doesn't make sense to generalize Greenville and other cities in the south as blue collar. There are white and blue collar jobs.

Doesn't sound like much fun to me, having to watch over kids on busy streets and subways.

Oh but you did when you questioned the DC cost of living.

And again that's your personal preference. Millions of other people who live like this seem to be doing fine all while paying higher prices.

If you have to ride a subway everywhere, it isn't walkable. You aren't walking.

You don't have to ride a subway on a campus in a college town. A college town is the perfect example of walkable.
