Denver...City with No Soul. Not a place to put roo - 11/16/2020
It has been a long time since i have been in Denver. On this visit it is apparent that this City is heading the wrong direction for a good quality of life and social balance. On the surface the area looks like it is doing great with expansion of communities , new construction, and road improvements, etc. However if you really look at the human experience and life here this City is failing as a community. First- there are homeless folks at almost every corner...young to old...even families..asking for support. I observed a family with a little girl and baby stroller with a positive reading sign. I went by twice to see if anyone even offered to help. Not a single person in the long line of cars even acknowledged the family much less offered any support. I observed this same need by folks everywhere i went around Denver and the exact same attitude from those that did not need assistance. I would say that Denver is a place without a human soul.
2nd- it is apparent that the Read More

Locals are always mad - 10/7/2020
I’ve been in Denver for 4 years, and I can honestly say the biggest thing I don’t like about this city is the self proclaimed “natives” (white people who grew up in Denver) who immediately hate anyone who isn’t from Denver. They blame everything on transplants; weed, traffic, job growth, apartments being built, nature being “ruined”, etc. City growth is happening everywhere, but locals view this city as theirs and theirs alone, and they do not like anyone from out of state. Ironically, the friendliest people I’ve met over the years are not from Denver, and the terrible attitudes shared by “natives” are what’s ruining this city. If you read anything negative about traffic, weed, or high cost of living, let it be known that these things have existed in Denver long before the city started growing at the rate it has. Aside from the piss poor attitudes of the salty locals, I love this city and state, and have shown nothing but respect for the the amazing nature outside my door. I will Read More

Sad - 10/3/2020
This is so sad for me to write. I'm a native, been here since the 70s. Denver was a hidden gem for years, until the legalization of pot.
After pot became legal it brought in all kinds of trash from all over the world. You smell pot everywhere, in your neighborhood, going out to dinner, in the industrial parts of town, even in the Parks! The median income of Denver is $50,000 but yet the average price of a home is over $600,000. How in the world can anyone afford to live here anymore? That's why the homelessness has quadrupled in the last few years! Homeless are setting up tents in the downtown area on city property but the city flushes them out and they end up pitching their tents on neighborhood Lawns without permission. It's so disgusting,
with their feces, needles, and trash all over the sidewalks and alleyways and in your driveways! And they are mean and have a sense of entitlement! The riots and the protesting the summer have damaged most of the downtown buildings by Read More

Over it and Outta here - 9/25/2020
I've lived in the Capitol Hill neighborhood since March 2017. I'll be moving out of Denver within the year. Look, this isn't going to be a positive review, so if you want affirmations about your choice to move here, look elsewhere. I'm trying not to **** on the place, but it's gone way down hill, even during my short stay.

1) Housing is insane- As of August the average house price in Denver Metro is now $600k, in Denver itself, the average home now costs $650k (September article by Westword). Don't think, "I'll just live in the suburbs." The discount is barely noticeable unless you commute from Nebraska. RTD is some of the most expensive public transport in the country. Do yourself a favor and don't look at how much the house you're buying sold for five years ago. You'll feel like a chump.

2) Crime is way up (admittedly, it is everywhere). I used to feel very safe walking everywhere. I feel less and less so now. Part of what I used to enjoy about Denver was Read More

Not bad but getting bad - 9/25/2020
It is a wonderful place. Good weather all but a few months, lots to do and see, good nightlife, thriving downtown. The biggest problem is that Denver has been "discovered" and people are coming in droves which is making Denver a not so wonderful Read More

Native perspective - 9/21/2020
From a native's perspective of course I love my home town. However I am considering leaving it because far too many people are moving here driving up the cost of living, the road congestion, and basically killing the reasons people love Colorado. You can't go anywhere anymore without finding a crowd of people. It takes an hour to get across town. I lived what used to be a 15 minute drive from work and now it can take 30-45 minutes based on traffic. The hiking trails around Denver are packed full of people. I have never in my life had a problem finding a job but with all these people here now it is becoming harder. There are too many people here and I am beginning to feel claustrophobic. I have grown really tired of how we have to tip toe around transplants feelings when they clearly have no regard for what locals want. You shovel out a parking space in front of your house they park in it. Okay technically they can do that but it is kind of a jerky move. We locals don't operate that Read More

I fell in love with this city. - 8/5/2020
I lived in Denver for about 9 years. I experienced the most quiet and busy times during these 9 years. I immigrated from Iran to here. I visited some other cities and states as well, but I realized there is no other place for me more comfortable than Colorado, in general, and Denver, more specific,.
There are some pros and cons like other places. But I guess these are pretty personal. Maybe some advantages are dis-advantages for others. In general, Colorado is a nice place to live at.
Cons:
* In the last 5 years, the cost of living, specially housing increased dramatically, specially after legalizing Marijuana.
* Drivers in Denver are ranked among the worsts in the nation, because a lot of people all around the nation moved here
* The rate of skin cancer is very high among people of Colorado due to high altitude
* The commute time increase dramatically due to lots of move-in into the state and city
* The Denver city goes to sleep around 10 PM. Read More

Full of passive aggressive drug addicts - 7/4/2020
My biggest complaint is that while Denver used to be the friendliest city in America it is know the most frighteningly passive aggressive cities in America.

Jobs here are full of passive aggressive employees who gossip and talk smack about each other behind each other’s backs. They will get you fired just because you don’t show any interest in going and getting black out drunk and snorting cocaine after work, or they just don’t like you for some totally unknown reason.

In every apartment building there are a handful of creepy passive aggressive stalker types who are angry that they are under achieving losers. They usually target people like me who ignore them. They will not stop stalking and harassing you until you call the police and get restraining orders. I have never had any restraining orders against anyone anywhere else, not even in the lunatic asylum known as the Bay Area.

Also people here often act shockingly unprofessional at their Read More
