Yeah, because Amazon employees would love to live in a Disney Land theme park aka UPTOWN Charyork City. Raleigh just happens to be more authentic.

Because Durham sucks so bad, it would make Raleigh appear worse than Charlotte? poor Durham

Maybe you should brag about Carowinds... Amazon employees would love to flock there.

You guys seem to be obsessed with the Triangle. If you moved here, it would suit you best to snatch up a degree. The demand for real estate has become unbelievable lately.

I am about to have two degrees. for the record Charlotte is growing faster than the triangle. Marginally.

Or are we talking about just Raleigh? I forget when to include Durham and when not to?


Are we only including dirham when talking about having soul?

You guys are clearly not smart enough to participate in discussions with intelligent people. Were you included in that promotional video that Charlotte sent to Amazon? LOL

Who wouldn’t prefer RTP over uptown?



It’s so much soul. So much energy. I’m going to visit RTP tomorrow and take in all the uniqueness. I think I see a millennial playing ping pong in one of those windows. Cool!





For the record. It’s very sad how you guys are kicking Durham to the curb

I suspected they are just a bunch of bitter undergrads who were never accepted into Triangle area schools. That's the only conclusion I have...

Charlotte reminds most people of a large and corporate Fayetteville.

That's not an insult. It's a question. Stop being so emotional, because your city didn't make the cut.

There you have it Fayetteville. Strange how folks in Raleigh hate NC. To be, rather than to seem.

Stop being emotional because you dont want to be associated with Durham. A lagging city with terrible rankings that drags down Raleigh.


You do know, its not a bad thing to be associated with Durham?

You do know Durham isnt a drag on Raleigh despite your rankings list?
