I was born in Queens in '91. Most of the city was bad back then but I wasn't born in one of the worst neighborhoods either. Nice urban for me. Although I'm growing up in the burbs.

Smile country livin is the place to be....:)

we moved here from a small city on the coast of ms. and have lived all over really-but here
it is so nice and peaceful.
.(except for those noisy four wheelers sometimes... sigh...)
but anyway,
i have geese flying over in the mornings and afternoons
and flowers bloom all year of different kinds
and even i picked more oranges from our orchard this morning!
even katrina couldnt totally destroy the sweetness of the people here and the hospitaliy.
it really is true folks-
people are much more civil and gracious down here.

Well, now that Cle440 has specified that topic at hand refers to the area posters grew up in, rather than where we live now, I would have to change my vote from Nice Urban to Other, as in Small Town/City. But I don't see a way to change my vote.

I'm from an inner ring suburb. As for where I live now, well, can I have an option between nice urban and inner city?

As can I say how much I hate the term inner city? Perhaps I'm just too literal, but it's one of those things that sound like it refers to a geographical place but so doesn't. I'd really prefer that we didn't have to have such a silly euphemism for poor neighborhoods.

I chose suburban. I grew up in a town I would describe as woodsy suburban. That means it has too much population density to be exurban, but it does have some woods and fields and winding roads, left over from back in the day when the town was more a rural, non-suburban small town. Some large yards (an acre or two) in some parts of town as well. Kind of low-density suburban.

Actually, no pain here at all. The suburban area I live in is quite upscale and pleasant. Everything I need is here except lots of open land.
