I've been to NYC, LA, Miami, Phoenix, Austin, Portland, Seattle... all have serious problems with homeless. Are there any big cities in the US with relatively few visible homeless?

No.

This is a nation-wide problem.

I am going to assume that it is difficult to measure homelessness but, according to the link below, of the 25 most populous metros, the five with the lowest rates of homelessness are Houston, the lowest, followed by Orlando, Detroit, Riverside-San Bernardino, and Dallas-Forth Worth.

Thanks for the link. I did notice rather few homeless when visiting Dallas.

Great list! I'd never seen this before. Looks like San Bernardino, St. Louis, Charlotte, Orlando, Houston, Austin, and Detroit have the least.

Making the list now is no guarantee of future numbers. Homeless move around.

I suggest...Lilliput.

Austin has a bad problem. I have been harrassed when walking downtown when visiting the city. If they ask for money and you refuse, they can get nasty.

LA for sure. I saw a homeless guy just the other day that was maybe 4’8”.

But we don’t have few homeless. We have many.

I would think those cities with longer, colder winters would be likely to have the smallest populations. If I was homeless, I'd head to someplace warm (if there was any way I could).

I don't know about that, it's also bad here in the Upper Midwest.
