Atlanta, GA


re:
The "A" is NOT all that it's cracked up t - 6/11/2020
I lived in Atlanta in the 1970s and traffic was the worst I have experienced until the Bay Area (ca) of the last 5 years or so. Its definitely long been a central problem. Atlanta was and remains one of the cheaper cities I've lived in. San Jose has an average house price 4 times Atlanta and you can get that 500 dollar/mo studio for $4000/ mo in Palo Alto or SF. Yes, even in the 1970s crime was something you had to watch there, it was not a low crime city even then.

How do you really know how bad a city is if you have only lived in one. I'm from Cincinnati but have lived in half a dozen others. Cinci was not my lowest ranked city. They all have tradeoffs, and you don't know what you have until you've spent some time in a place, the surface is often not revealing.

What right to work means is that you have choice. There is a reason auto workers in right to work states have voted against the UAW in 30 straight elections. You might also notice job creation rates in right to work states are 2x what they are in the other states. Go back to blue if it makes you happy, you won't find me there.

Be aware that wild city policies can be a strategy - 6/11/2020
I see many reviews complaining about the city council. Most of these tend to be somewhat average people. There is something that some of you need to be aware of. It is often a strategy of Democratically controlled cities to intentionally drive the middle class out of the city limits. This is damaging to the quality of life, but makes it impossible to change the administration and leaders are guaranteed re-election forever. Look at the top poverty rate cities and the top dozen all have been 100% democratically controlled for > 35 years. One problem with it is that corruption tends to become a serious issue. Baltimore has had 3 mayors in a row bounced for corruption, Newark has that beat, they had 4 in a row go to jail. The last Detroit mayor is serving a 28 year sentence. This phenomenon has a name, it is called the Curley effect after the mayor of Boston who pioneered the technique many years ago.

re:
Just a mini LA without all the jobs now.< - 6/11/2020
The traffic is nothing like Ca, not in your wildest dreams. The dirty areas tend to be downtown, not unusual in cities, I'm from San Jose and appreciate the low housing prices and the quality of the housing stock, but I have chosen to stay away from near downtown. Crime and homelessness also tend to be close to downtown. Homeless problem here is minor compared to Bay Area, LA, Seattle or Portland, but near downtown it is significant.
