You do realize that there are cities in the South and there are country towns in the Northeast...don't you?

Who knows. Maybe 20 years from now Atlanta might even burst and they will start having a population shift and they will be considered "dying".

Things cycle, no city is "dying". I am getting sick of here this, "northern cities are dying" bs. It makes no sense at all.
Probably about as sick as I get of reading "They're moving south only because of the weather" and "Atlanta isn't a real city" and bulls#%$ like that.

That is just not reality...I've driven across upstate New York...most of that state is COUNTRY. Period. And the other states in the Northeast are no exception.

It happens. I've met people who've though Houston was the best city ever compared to NYC and CHI [true story]. Just like people in or come from the south might think cities up north are much better than cities down south

I have to disagree with you on that one. I bet more southerners know who their ancestors were than northerners. Personally, I have traced back to the 1600s-1700s on most braches of my family. I think it may be easier for us to do that since our families have lived here for so long.
