No, being a redneck or hillbilly goes against everything that city life is about. You cant go hunting downtown on your quad or have a tobacco spitting contest..lol

I really never seen a redneck in Chicago, unless you consider Bridgeport. In matter of fact, Bridgeport is now diverse and no longer majority white anymore with the Asian and hispanic population is over 25% and 30%.

It wasn't that long ago that the second one was closed at the former Town & Country Mall (not Village). In fact it was the last anchor standing when it closed only a short couple of years ago after the rest of the mall closed a couple of years before that.

There's a lot of money in woodlands and sugarland. Where do you think all these fortune 500 ceos live? True, there are a lot in River Oaks but I would venture to guess most live in the 'burbs and there are a fair amount of corporations in sugarland and the woodlands themselves.

not enough to support a Neiman Marcus.

why live in the distant burbs when they can live in river oaks and memorial? the wealthy want to live in an exclusive community. anyone can live in The Woodlands and Sugar Land. River Oaks and Memorial are two of the wealthiest areas of the country.

There are rednecks in every city...unless the city builds barriers to keep them out. Pretty much all kinds of people are allowed to go into any city - even rednecks.

LOL. They may not be in the city of Miami. But they are in the Miami area. Take a trip to Davie in a while? In fact, go to West Miami-Dade county and see if you don't see any. Yes, Miami has them.

How many does Dallas have ? It has to have like 3 in the area. I know there's probably more high $$ per capita places (plano, frisco, north dallas) up there, but still.
