El Paso is a unique larger city, with a small town feel and I love it. First let me mention the drawbacks.

High poverty rate
Lacking some art/culture
High property taxes
Not much for singles & families to do
Over building East & West side
Sad Downtown
Isolated from other large cities
Low wages
No incentives for large corporations to move here
NOT taking advantage of the city's rich HISTORY
Rude drivers
Very little rain, water may be a problem in a couple of years
Economy too dependent on Ft. Bliss

Now for its advantages:

Affordable housing prices
Low cost of living
Traffic is great compared to other cities this size
Beautiful natural vistas and arroyos, including the Franklin mountains
Great weather, dry and warm, great for allergy suffers
VERY LOW CRIME RATE
Fairly clean, no graffitti
Close to Mexico, medications and food are much cheaper compared to US
Gas prices and utilities reasonable, compared to other cities
Resturants are great and very affordable compared to other cities this size
People are friendly for the most part
