And I bought the Porsche as I'm not really a Chevy guy.
Well, your taste in cars is much better than your taste in suburbs.

Known as smart? I'd say boring. Everything about franchises and Camrys screams vanilla bland boring.

But to each his own.

But that's the point, it's about personal preference and Scottsdale has nothing that I need or want whereas my current hood has everything I want and need. Maybe 20 years ago I would have loved Scottsdale but now boring and quiet work jet perfect for me and my lifestyle. And I drive a Porsche and travel a lot so it's just personal choice. Different kind of excitement appeals to each of us.

Guadalupe isn't pretty to look at but it has its own form of culture and character.
I'm not understanding all the hate for Tolleson, which is identical to Avondale in every way!

Maybe not a myth but, blown way out of proportion.

As an ex-Phoenix native who escaped to LA, OP needs to face facts: Phoenix definitely IS a suburb.

The only thing Avondale has in common with Tolleson is they are both in the southwest valley.

Tolleson is largely industrial, has a lower household income, and a much smaller population along with stagnant growth.

Avondale is larger, has a higher growth rate, higher household income, and most of the areas north of I-10 are middle and upper middle-class.

Avondale south of I-10 is a different picture than northern Avondale but overall the city itself is much more neighborhood-oriented and family-friendly than Tolleson is.
