Albuquerque looks eerily similar to Tucson. They're both beautiful cities.

Tucson on a 78 degree December day last year.

Anyway, how do you guys like it there? Is the crime / school district as bad as everyone says?

I like it here, Ive lived here 3 years and Im very comfortable here however I would like to try another city out just cause Ive lived in NM my whole life, anyways the crime is not that bad and its just like any other city if you stay clear of the bad parts and dont associate with bad people or drugs and gangs then you should be ok, it could be alot worse.

I dont have kids but from what I hear its not all that great and NM is ranked almost last in education and its usually one of the worst states to raise a child due to poverty and juvi crime. It just dosent seem as bad as the stats seem,its just normal life, but then again Ive never lived outside of NM so I dont have anything to compare it to.

overall I like it here,the weather is nice,we get a taste of all the seasons and we got the city amenities plus the outdoor activities,minor league and college sports and I like that this city is laid back, no one seems like they are too flashy and always trying to look like a movie star or flaunting their riches,everyone from all walks of life all interact here.Its a unique city.

Another thing I like is the scenery is better here than most of the other desert cities,we have a river flowing through the middle of the city and lots of trees for being a desert city.

desert sun, why settle for silver when you can have (and already have) gold? Albuquerque has it all!

Default Historic CHATTANOOGA River Gorge

GANG: Nice colorful picture thread that someone started. JMT showed some nice city pics of this RailRoad hub of the 60's into a Arts / retiree / Outdoor sports , mtn center.
.. This Civil War Battle history area just had the Vice Pres D.C. here for a "Re-enactment" last week. The river Gorge west of the city is also called "The Grand Canyon of the East" . Some expensive home dot the Brow lot overviews. Gorge Trust organization preserves the area from over-development. New High -Tech Jet Tour boat ,built in state of Wash, is a Must for any visitor coming thru region.
. The 1996 Atlanta Kayak whitewater activities were held east of the city on the Ocoee river. New 305 mile linear HIKE state park called the Cumberland Trail (CT) , part of The Great Eastern, will run along the upper plateau of Walden Ridge.
. As a "HalfBack" Chatt has gotten some influx for the Katrina ,New Orleans storm people, along with Florida storm weary homeowners. Some northern people that quit shoveling large snow storms. Business news will hear more national coverage with the new Volkswagon assembly plant being built here for 2010. Many bicycle paths thru the city , across both bridges, up various mtn park trails, or bring your SCOOTERs for the rallys or poker runs.
....

I was looking at the Alb. pics and was thinking "wow, how similar they are to Tucson." Then someone said the same thing and posted Tucson pics. Ahh...the memories. Thanks for posting those!! I lived in Tucson from 1991 until 1998--graduated from U of A in '98. Also was stationed at Davis-Monthan.
