I see what is going op in Charlotte, just like you see what is going on in Raleigh.

Charlotte is gaining about 17,000 people a year. It takes a lot of building to keep up with the demand.
From 2010 t0 2016 Charlotte gain 110,627 people from US census. Think about adding 110,627 people in Raleigh. You would be in a building boom just like Charlotte.

Raleigh is second in the state for people moving in from 2010 t0 2016 with 55,098 {US Census} people moving in.
That has keep Raleigh building lot of new housing.

Charlotte is busy just like Raleigh trying to provide jobs for all the people moving in.

I think Raleigh and Charlotte are so busy trying to make their city a good place to live.

Every city in the USA has its good as well as its bad. For people in Charlotte or Raleigh say that they feel that people in a city feels superior is non-sense. Most people are so busy working for a living that
they do not think about a city is superior.

I have family in Raleigh and we never talk about about how good Charlotte or Raleigh is.

You need to get out and help build Habitat for Humanity house. I been working with Habitat since 1979.
Well we are going through a serious building boom it’s just not in the same style that Uptown Charlotte is. For the sake of the pissing contest on a forum, all of the big flashy developments that Charlotte has going on certainly “shows” better. And it seems some users get hung up on the fact that those big towers must mean everywhere else is so inferior. The two areas are just different and have different needs.

Raleigh is booming but will probably never boom in that same style. But that’s ok. It started waaaayyyy later then Charlotte for one thing but it also simply doesn’t have the same circumstances as Charlotte. It has arrived as a full on city, but it’s still not going to have some of the other bigger city things quite yet like public transit outside of buses. Did Charlotte have light rail when it was a 1.3m metro?....or were all sides of Uptown’s neighborhoods full and developed when Charlotte was 450k? Of course not. So Raleigh will continue to grow, but it shouldn’t be put down if it’s not equal to everything (development wise) to Charlotte. It shouldn’t be lol. They may be in the same class of city but Charlotte obviously is larger.

I’ve said it before but I’ve always felt it made way more sense that the Triangle be compared to Charlotte because of how at least the land area they cover is similar. And yet they still are so different from each other the comparisons are usually apples to oranges.

I competely agree as well that in the real world, there’s next to no evidence that people from Charlotte give a crap about Raleigh or that Raleigh people give a crap about Charlotte. Both metros offer more then enough for not a whole lot of jealousy to even exist. It basically always comes down to which you prefer to live in. Unless of course you’re a nerd in the forums trying to put the other in its place constantly lol.

And I agree with the rest of you as well that it goes both ways. There certainly are people trolling from each side lol

If it was not for the Charlotte Metro and The Triangle, North Carolina would be in a big hurt.
Each Metro offers a different product to the state. Charlotte and the triangle are good at what they do.
That is why both metros is were people want to move.
That does not mean that the Triad is not important to NC also, it is.

Seems like Charlotte's got a lot of insecurity.
As a UNC grad, you should be able to distinguish claims of "superiority" from tourism marketing slogans.

Looking back, ahead on 10-year anniversary of Charlotte's Lynx Blue Line

Pooja Ranganathan was finishing her morning commute Monday morning when she stepped off a train to a crowd waiting for her on the Lynx Blue Line Third Street Station platform.
John Lewis, CEO of Charlotte Area Transit System, stepped forward and presented her with a free year of rides on the Blue Line, Beats by Dre headphones and a large cardboard sign that proclaimed her as the Lynx Blue Line's 48,944,646th customer.

Wonder what the logic was for awarding the 48,944,646th customer instead of waiting for the 50,000,000th?
