I think that's what this forum is about-the WHOLE city in general.
People slam Detroit and Cleveland because they are Rust Belt cities, that have dropped in population more than risen in the past few decades. Detroit alone can be be used in about 5 minutes of a Jay Leno monolouge. They're mainly steriotyped to be crime and drug infested hell holes......
yeah, but if you would notice that Detroit and Cleveland's crimes have gone down, and population, along with wealth is coming back to the city. Detroit is a huge city, saying the whole rest of the city is bad is just retarted. here are some photo's of alot of detroit. the first two photos are of detroit's indian village, the next one is corktown and the last is in the Midtown area.

I'm not dissin' anybody. I stated that those two cities are STERIOTYPED, more than anything. And their populations HAVE droped (Cleveland's fell from 900,000+ in the 50's to 478,000 in 2000/ Detroit was once the 4th largest city in the nation, but fell to 11th as of this year). I'm not saying they're terrible places because I haven't been to either city. I never go to a place and just complain about it to everyone.

And (I wouldn't last a minute in Cleveland or Detriot) what's that supposed to mean?

I readily admit I do not like LA, Orange County and the eastern metro area. However, I will say that the small western part of the metro that hugs the coast has some beautiful beachside towns. Laguna, Huntington, Newport Beach are all very beautiful and have a very different vibe than the rest of LA. I;ve always loved the ocean and the Pacific coastline impresses me from Oregon to LA to Central America; beautiful and LA's metro gets in on this.
