Okay...still not sure that your lesson really was relevant to what the OP was asking for. I simply made the statement that I thought Louisville is probably what Charlotte was 15 years ago as general statement to explain the differences and growth patterns of the two areas. I actually think your lesson validated my comment.

Anyways, it wasn't really meant as an insult, just a way to compare. Truth be told, I really love Louisville and am seriously considering a move to your city. To me, the fact that it is a smaller, less developed city than Charlotte, is some of the appeal...to me anyways.

Sorry...didn't mean to ruffle your feathers.

No feathers ruffled...I am a transplant here myself. It just seems some people (not you) have an overinflated view of Charlotte. That's why I brought out the stats to say hey, Charlotte just passed Louisville in metro in the last couple of decades and the city of Louisville itself is still substantially larger, more dense, and has a larger urban area. As I have stated before, Charlotte is a midsized city, and for the time being, it competes more with Louisville (now a smaller metro area by a few hundred thousand) than it does with say, Atlanta. Really, a city that is almost identical in size and character to Charlotte IMO is Indianapolis.

Personally, I prefer the historic, somewhat gritty, urban, indie vibe of Louisville over some newer towns, but to each his own.
