but it would only be a two year stint in dallas or if that doesn't go through it's looking like my next option is charleston.

as much as i love living above and just below the Mason-Dixon line, these winters are starting to suck and going south is sounding more and and more appealing

ATL won... the lady has family there and it's always been a minor plan to live out there for at least a few years at some point.

But I'd love to make a life in N'Awlins.

maybe melrose in LA

museum district is balboa park in san diego

san francisco might better offer more exact replicas of these two nabes tho

In response to Reply # 31


  

          

you could say ray st, but there are no galleries there anymore
you could say barrio logan, but those are craftsman and not artists (no judgement, there just aren't any galleries there)

space4art is about it and it's in the east village

san diego doesn't have an art scene, everything is spread out and ppl are fleeing the city for LA

6. "New Orleans is very excellent. I wouldn't kill myself in Houston."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Houston reminded me a lot of LA for some reason.

And I found a reasonably good Jewish deli down there, so I'd survive.

New Orleans is just great on a lot of levels though. I've got friends down there, my wife's got family. I hated the humidity, and the French Quarter basically reminded of the LES in the late 80s, but I could keep a pistol on me at all times, which I think balances the whole thing out.

Houston's diverse, has good eats and plenty of jobs. I wouldn't be thrilled driving everywhere, but I think I could cope. Also? Central air.

New Orleans seems like the most fun in the least about of square footage which is what is the major appeal of East coast city life is. the metropolitian area is more condensed than sprawling and i like that. especially in DC.

with that said. i might end up in Atlanta soon. i really don't wanna live there. i think i'd enjoy myself but not as much as i would in DC. but...i'd live like a fucking king. and i wanna live like a fucking king.

it's true what they say...people are strange, when you're strangers.

Obviously my choice and still is today. I haven't been to Houston yet but I doubt it's better than the A

New Orleans, I think is cool, but I find it very overrated and feel like a lot of ppl didn't give a fuck about it being "cool" until solange and brad Pitt moved down there and of course they weren't checking for it before Katrina

Atl been popping and popular

live in houston
deal with fuckery from rental units in atl
nawlins is a 4hrs drive from my house

i dont know if nawlins is cool to live in and make a life out of day in day out

schools are all TRASH in nawlins
you MUST go pprivate

in atl/hou there are some decent schools depending upon where you live

i choose houston as texas has no state income tax
and we are 30mins from the water (Kemah) with some of the best seafood you can have
and since we close to nawlins we get truckloads of crawfish too

I haven't been to Atlanta in a long time but I used to love it when I'd go. Unfortunately, one of my recent requirements for a city is that it has to be near a big body of water.

New Orleans is dope too although I'm less sure about living there.

I've never been anywhere in Texas but I'd like to visit. How far is Houston from the coast? And that post yesterday talking about 30 degree weather might knock Houston off any list.

My fam in Pittsburgh act like it's still 1960 down south....

These same family members live 15 minutes from some of the most racist little small towns outside of Pittsburgh.

when they go down south for a family trip and see a pickup truck with a rebel flag they act shook as shit. All while living 10 minutes from towns with racist white people with pickup trucks who have no problem letting people know they don't fuck with Black people.

In response to Reply # 46


          

I think these reality shows have people all fucked up on what ATL is like.

When I go I have a great time but then again I never bought into the Southern stereotypes and spent half my life down here.

people in ATL are no more annoying than NYC "nah mean" niggas or shady Philly/Jersey niggas

And Ay-raab bodegas.

There is nothing else to New York.

Only Manhattan exists, too.

That is about as accurate as you paint Atlanta. Which makes sense because someone lie you couldn't possibly have access to the real Atlanta.

For that you need to know people who matter beyond their financi plan.

I still don't understand the logic of being 15 miles out from Atlanta, but still saying they live in Atlanta. Especially since it causes the kind of confusion that it does. I guess claiming "ATL" sounds a whole lot cooler than "Decatur" (pop. 20k)

you have listed and seriously pondering moving to the other one after a recent visit, I'd say Atlanta is still the best city in the south to live in

Houston seems really really nice but to be fair don't know enough abt it

but

I am surprised NO is leading this poll question

I couldn't disagree more - NO of course has some attractive features to it (food/music) but unless you have money this is far from the best place to live in

The French Quarter is great and all but after awhile it gets old too after you've lived here

The blk folx here are hurting worse than any other (southern) city I've lived in or been to...there are no jobs other than service related jobs mostly in the French Quarter...the educational system is hortible and consequently that has factored into a lot of the ignorance and backwardness you see amongst the poor blk ppl

I finally got to check Charlotte out around 2001 and was underwhelmed. To be fair, all of the comparisons to Atlanta probably got my expectations way up. But Charlotte was a little bit slower than I expected.

I imagine things might have changed within the last 13+ years though.

I expect the kind of fuckery that's going on over there in SOUTH Carolina, but since McCrony took over there it's been non-stop contempt of the people who live there from the powers that be....

127. "The promise of not being an overlooked, conservative-run snoozefest"
In response to Reply # 113


          

I hoped that a state that has touted "North Carolina exceptionalism" would become, hmm I dunno, exceptional -- at least compared to other states in the South. That hasn't been the case, especially for Blacks, women, or LGBT people.

I knew that North Carolina was generally broke, boring, Churchy as all hell, and plagued with identity issues when I was going to college there, but it has only become more conservative over the years (at least in all sectors of its government), and none of its biggest cities, as far as I can tell, have become more interesting. Culturally, I don't think it's a great place to live if you aren't as obsessed with Church as everyone else is.

Charlotte, its most promising city, was surprisingly slow when I went. Why live there when I could live in Atlanta? What is exceptional about Charlotte and other places in North Carolina?

In response to Reply # 127


          



Why would you believe that bullshit? LOL...

That isn't Charlotte's fault that's your fault for believing the hype.

Charlotte is a 2nd tier city like Nashville, Louisville, Cincinnati.. but what makes Charlotte different is the growth. No city in the US with at least 500K has grown as fast as Charlotte over the last 10 years.

As far as church and conservatives go.. talk about a lazy critique of southern city? why not throw in a Nascar and Civil War diss as well?

GA is a more conservative state than NC. North Carolina is purple as fuck and Charlotte is Blue as hell. Sure, the state congress is conservative right now but it doesn't effect you day to day operations.

You make it sound like Charlotte is in a dry county and the sheriff said no dancing. GTFOH.. your criticism sounds a little personal.

Hence why I'd choose Atlanta over Charlotte.

>Why would you believe that bullshit? LOL...

I didn't believe that Charlotte was the next anything, but a lot of people in North Carolina did. I think the state has suffered from an identity crisis in general.

>As far as church and conservatives go.. talk about a lazy
>critique of southern city? why not throw in a Nascar and Civil
>War diss as well?

I'm a need you to keep up. It wasn't a critique of a specific city, it was a critique of the state in general. Georgia is too conservative and churchy, too. But unlike Georgia, North Carolina doesn't have a city that I'd want to live in.

>GA is a more conservative state than NC. North Carolina is
>purple as fuck and Charlotte is Blue as hell. Sure, the state
>congress is conservative right now but it doesn't effect you
>day to day operations.

It seemed to me that ATL was more insulated from GA's conservative culture than Charlotte was insulated from North Carolina's, but maybe that has changed. I will pray for Charlotte's continued evolution.

>You make it sound like Charlotte is in a dry county and the
>sheriff said no dancing. GTFOH.. your criticism sounds a
>little personal.

Dry or not, Charlotte did feel slow and, at least culturally, unexceptional. Your responses to me are way more personal than anything I've stated. Perhaps living in Charlotte has made you insecure.

In response to Reply # 68


  

          

I'm trying to move to Charlotte in the next few years, tired of this dump called Columbia, SC, this place is hell & backwards as fuck and going further down the drain unless you're white & love Gamecocks, it's full of wanna-be's and keeping up with the Joneses when the Joneses are in the same piss pot as you are.

ATL is cool but it's done and overrated, it blew up after the Olympics and everyone is nothing but hustling in circles, but only the people who already hustled and made it elsewhere will make it there; traffic is stupid crazy, and the rest of GA is nothing but country & woods like SC, don't know why people think the entire state is what GA is, just like people who think the state of NY is similar to NYC, NOPE!

130. "RE: charlotte.........well, it depends..."
In response to Reply # 68


  

          

If you're looking for anything to do...and I mean ANYTHING..you're out of luck.

It's extremely clique-ish..and thats for everything.

You want to get on Djing somewhere? You better know somebody
You want to put your art up/have an art show? You better know somebody

You just want to find out where "the cool kids go"? You better know somebody


And even then, theres not much variety in what there is to do. You can go to this bar.....or that bar....or that one over there.


You like listening to hip-hop in a public setting? Theres ONE venue for that.

You wanna just chill with your lady in a lounge-type environment? Good luck..

And dont get me started on the "public transportation". Its pointless..friggin pointless.

You want to find a good sports bar to have good sports conversation? Forget it. Most fans at the Panthers game dont know that youre supposed to be the hell quiet when we have the ball...but donr worry about that lasting all game...they leave before the third quarter is over.

You dig music festivals? Well then, you're in luck! The annual Speed Street Festival should do you right! Three days of Coors light drinkin' NASCAR fans invade the city to hear the likes of Trace Adkins, Three Doors Down and whoever else is the new "hot country act". The "Black Night" is on Thursday...the first night of the festival. Headliners in years past have included Jon B, Midnight Starr, and last year it was a Michael Jackson cover band.

Wanna take the kids out? Lets see...you got....Discovery Place...uhh...the new jawn down the street from there...uhh..oh! The Nature Museum, where they still have the owls and snakes that were there when I was elementary school.

You dont go to church on the regular? Prepare to NOT fit in with your co-workers.

I LOVE my friends and family in Charlotte...but I would never, ever move back. For those who havent been in a while, nothings changed.

135. "I saw Morris Day and the Time at Speed Street"
In response to Reply # 130


          

I missed SWV last year.

Speed Street crowd is definitely pwt but the Charlotte Taste crowd is on point.

Sports bars? Shiiiiet. This is the one area where Charlotte is on point. Hickory Tavern in University is like a club.

Nightlife you have Music Factory, Stache House is a nice lounge but the crowd is too young. Hipsters can hit up the Common Market in Plaza or South End.

You have Crave for hookah's and a nice mixed crowd and on the other side of the building is the club 5th Element. I don't do clubs these days but I went in there once and it was packed with Black people.

I agree this city is mostly bars and needs more lounge spots but honestly, I prefer bars over clubs so it's cool with me.

On College Street you have Phoenix, ReBar and Cosmos (their Salsa night got dimes bruh).

I wouldn't move here if I was in my 20's and wanted a city to entertain me but I'm married. All I know is everytime someone comes from ATL looking for entertainment they have been impressed with what I have to show them given Charlotte's size.

Music Factory? You might as well said Epicenter.

Common Market? I'll never understand why "us folk" still support CM, given their racist behaviour.

Impressed...more like surprised, lol. Take away "The CI' " and theres nothing.

The sad part about the spots you did name...the lounges in particular, they prolly wont be there 2 years from now.


Soul Gastro...the coolest spot in Charlotte...

In response to Reply # 141


          

I don't have enough info on Common Market to call it racist.

I just buy the beer and drink it while chilling for a few.

I don't really fuck with CIAA like that because the prices are fucking insane.

In response to Reply # 0


          

As a non-southerner living in Atlanta for as long as I have now to consider my self as close to an Atlantan as I'll likely get, we are quickly becoming as unlivable as Houston in terms of sprawl, congestion and quickly losing our identity. In terms of "why did I come down here", it was for weather and slower pace of life. That version of Atlanta is packing it's bags and getting it's mail forwarded as we speak.

just touring/vacationing in NO and it's easy to have a misleading perception of this city in particular when you're down here fulfilling all your hedonistic desires lol

It's a great place to visit...a great place, but to live here? There's definitely other cities in the south I'd choose before here...but I do like it here, and the city is *slowly* bouncing back post-Katrina

from a tourist perspective you think: the french quarter, bourbon, the pretty architecture, the food, the international party appeal, the romantic moments...

but living there?? driving up and down them hood ass streets everyday? I'm good

outside the tourist stuff (which you will get sick of), there is not much to see or get excited about

Plus it's hot and swampy

^^^everything you said is what initially hooked me - I took a tour of the city and was blown away w/the history, architecture, accents (lol), drive-thru daiquiri spots and everything else in between...but all that shit wear off after abt two mos.

>but living there?? driving up and down them hood ass streets

Yes, the 9th ward is just pitiful - it literally looks like next to nothing has been done there after Katrina...and those hood streets you mentioned run right into the nice streets/areas because as the ppl say here: there's no such thing as a nice neighborhood in NOLA, just nice streets

it wasnt like L9 was some opulent nabe where kings and kings resided and all the homes were kept up
most them houses were barely liveable
ijs

again,
the day in and day out of living in a tourist city is not what it's cracked up to be
been there
done that
you can't live in "the moment" of the beautiful beach or being drunk on bourbon/canal every day of the year

you need employment
proper grocery stores
decent public schools
safe neighborhoods

every time we'd go to nawlins we'd always be gingerly creeping around this or that neighborhood

New Orleans is one of the most interesting cities I've ever set foot in. I get so inspired every time I visit, and I imagine myself making a life there.

But where the hell would I work?? I don't think there are any jobs for me. Meanwhile, Atlanta has more of a global economy. And, of course, it's one of the best places in the world to be Black and gay.

Houston seems ok...but I don't like the idea of living in Texas lol. The sprawl of Houston really turns me off. And I don't think anyone from the Northeast would ever visit me.

146. "If you are a teacher or gay, than I would suggest ATL"
In response to Reply # 136


          

if you are neither of those things I would still pick ATL over Charlotte. The only reason I won't move to ATL is because it's too spread out. I hate driving in ATL.
