Ugly. Dirty. Scuzzy.
You are quite the seasoned traveller

They are both primarily ghettos

Pheonix was one-hundred ten degrees when I was there and everything looked the same. I was only there for an hour or so, so I don't want to go too overboard (I'm sure it has some nice areas), but it looked pretty awful to me. Just a giant concrete mess baking the desert sun.

Orlando. I was there on business and couldn't find a non-chain restaurant in which to eat after driving around for forty-five minutes. Sprawl everywhere, boring architecture, mostly.

I also found much of LA to be very ugly, outside the beach and the well-off areas in the hills.

Oh, and I like Philadelphia. I don't care what anyone says, it's a fine town in spite of the problems.

It`s ok for everyone to trash Orlando but god forbid if someone has a negative opinion of New York!

NY is in a league of its own. There is too much to consider for me to make general statements about it.

There's some MAJOR industrial expansion and building going on in Mobile right now. Check those statistics again in a couple of years.

I like Philly too. Unfortunately, it's a good place to get yourself killed. Being from Chicago everyone always says don't leave the airport if you go to Philly. Ironically enough I was mugged in the airport!

That's because New York has a heck of a lot of positives to counterbalance its negatives.

For the life of me, I'm having a hard time coming up with something positive to say about Orlando. And I'm not trying to be a smart*ss, I promise.

I'm from Chi and I think Orlando is fun as hell. It maybe a tourist brand of fun, but it's still fun as hell.

Well thats your opinion. I just don`t see why it`s so bad here maybe it`s just me and I am blind to it.

I am quite happy here. It has it`s problems but it feels like home to me I have moved away and felt homesick and came back.

Maybe comming from Rhode Island it`s a step up for me, I didn`t like providence at all.
