What city has all power lines buried? Never seen one.

HHudson road should be 4 lanes

Greenville can be best without being perfect. Nobody agrees on what perfect is anyway.

We have university Center and Clemson is 40 minutes away

Houston, TX is probably 75% buried power lines, and that's with 5 million people. They have been burying their lines for the past 25 years, so there's only a few older neighborhoods without buried lines.

There is not that much to see or do in downtown and parking is a nightmare.

Also missing public transportation, only see the signs, but never saw a bus!

Don't even know what's so great about Charleston, I expected it to be more like NOLA, but it's not even close, especially the French Quarter.

NYC, LA, Chicago, Boston, Seattle, San Francisco or if it has to be a smaller city Bar Habor, Burlington, Homer...so many places nicer than Charleston, also parking is crazy and this train that runs thru the city and when it turns blocking everything.

I've been robbed three times in my life, all three times were in the Garden District of NOLA.

Bad luck, this could just happen anywhere, wrong time, wrong place, plus why you go back to this area, if it's not save.....still a nicer city.

I accidentally stepped on a bum on Bourbon Street when I ended up over there the night before a job interview. They need some more lighting there. I didnt' see any appeal to NO, Greenville and Charleston beat that out. I think Greenville better than lot of trendy cities like Austin, Charlottesville, Chapel Hill, Athens. Less traffic, lower cost of living, better location, better weather, close to mountains.

True, but the crime rate at the time is New Orleans was appalling. One of the robberies was a block off of Bourbon, one was next door to the police station, and one was outside my home on Chestnut St.

I don't know if things have cleaned up since I lived there in 1991. I'd hope so.
