I don't think Orlando is any worse off than other urban areas. There are plenty of decent/good looking neighborhoods within city limits.

I agree. I also think that our bad parts of town are decent looking compared to some other metros. They tend to look more dumpy or tacky compared to straight out rundown and/or intimidating. Our rundown areas are more reminiscent of Vegas or San Diego than New Orleans, NYC or Chicago, for example.

I was in Philly last week, and it's so dirty. Just gross. Orlando is a very clean city by comparison to most.

YES! Extrememly seedy! I moved here from Colorado and I hate it and plan on moving back as soon as I can. It's nasty here and I cannot believe how many rude people there are. I visited the Gulf Coast and that seemed a lot better than Orlando. Orlando should change its name to El'Ghetto.

I was kind of shocked myself by this. I'm a FL native so I know how much places like Orlando grew, but I didnt live IN Orlando while growing up. What do you think makes the people so rude? Do you see this in certain areas or all over Orlando?

I found it to be quite the opposite! The people here, go out of their way to be friendly. They are happy too. Soo different from the upper midwest. How many places can you go to that have the "perfect" landscaping that you find in Orlando. Not California that's for sure. I lived there twice and not impressive at all compared to here. I also lived in colorado. I see no difference in the people here and there. In fact, I have heard people say and it's true, Orlando is a beautiful town.

Because they all come from other states, that's why.

I think Orlando definitely gets a fair share of unhappy/rude people from other states; a few in particular. I agree.
