I don't blame you for not wanting to live in Atlanta, Cincinnati, or LA. I have only been through Cincinnati. After the 2001 problem, Cincinnati doesn't seem like a nice place. LA is just too violent, too polluted and too sprawled for its own good.. Atlanta is just a copy-cat of LA in training. I should know. I live in the metro Atlanta area and I plan to leave Atlanta after college.

Why are most of the cities you like in the South? Just curious.
DC doesn't sound so bad. Dallas,TX is good too, but I question Atlanta, Nashville or Memphis.

Why do you question Atlanta? Atlanta is a great city and there is more to do here than just "clubs" as I am referring to one of your earlier post. Most of my preferred cities are in the south because these southern cities have a track record for political, social, and economic advancement for African Americans. I question your desire to want to relocate to areas that have few African Americans being that you are black. This website is a good source for information but the racial tones on this site get on my nerves and it is especially irritating to hear another black person trash places where blacks have been successful and want to relocate to other areas. In an earlier post you characterized yourself as not sharing typical black interest but who are you to define what is typical for black people. It's funny that many of the respondents on this particular topic would never live in cities that have a population of minorities but to each his own.

Las Vegas- Only nice for visit
New Orleans- Maybe another time
Anywhere in Florida- AHH!! HURRICANES!
Anywhere in Wyoming- TOO SMALL
Chicago- Cold winters and dirty
Phoenix- Cook eggs on the sidewalk, too hot
Anywhere in the Dakotas- Cold and empty
Detroit- Obviously i'm not alone, this city has lost half its pop. since 1950
Birmingham- Not what I want
Anywhere in Alaska- Too cold and mostly isolated
Philiadelphia- Visited, too different from my ways
Most Tiny towns- I'm a big city person

YES!!
San Diego- Has it's problems, but has imroved greatly
Seattle- Clean, good except for traffic
Denver- Love the outdoor feeling
Portland- Simmilar to Seattle
Most other fair-sized cities are so-so

Atlanta and Los Angeles? Really? Those are two cities I can't imagine comparing.

I have lived in the metro Atlanta area for at least a decade and for me, at least, it is a hard city to live in. I have had problems here myself and I think about the places where I didn't have many problems. Actually, Dallas,TX is a good place to live. I went there myself. I used to live in Texas myself. Perhaps I am wrong. Perhaps it is just me, but I have had some problems in the metro Atlanta area. Then again, I'm only 21. Perhaps you found something that I don't see.

I can. I know LA is too sprawled out and is very polluted. Atlanta is the same way. Life is hard for someone without a car in either city.

Why do people always use sprawl and pollution as reasons to say that any two cities are very similar when it's obvious that Los Angeles and Atlanta are worlds apart in many ways?
