re:
Old Albuquerqueans do not want you here - 5/29/2019
I agree 100% well said! They come here with a superior thinking attitude, and try to change it to their liking. I can't stand outsiders, especially from the south and east.

Tucson, AZ


Depressive heat, a dying city full of retirees - 4/5/2019
I was stationed at DMAFB in Tucson in 1993. I lived there for 15 years until I retired. Tucson is a wasteland with depressive heat, no freeways AT ALL! A dinky horrible zoo, crime like I have never seen, no jobs, drugs from Nogales like a river, dirt, more dirt, and sand. There is NO WATER, they call their dry river beds as rivers but they are bone dry. No grass, no real trees, except some palm trees. Albuquerque is where we live now, and it's far better in everyway. Albuquerque has a REAL river running right thru it. Albuquerque has the largest Zoo in the southwest, I25 running North to south, I40 running East to West, the countries longest tram to the ski resort on top of the Sandias, an Aquarium, Cliffs playland, mountains everywhere near by, summer temps at 90° Winter rarely snows much. After leaving Tucson, I can really see what's missing in Tucson....everything!

re:
One scary city.
- 4/5/2019
WHAT??? You gotta be kidding. I am a retired MSGT and have lived in many cities including Tucson for 18 years. Tucson is the crime ridden city. I've lived in Albuquerque for 11 years and not 1 thing has ever happened to me or my family!! Quit being dramatic

re:
Albuquerque don't like it here feel free - 4/5/2019
I agree 100%. I am retired military, and I lived in Tucson for 18 years. I lived here in Albuquerque from 1988 to 1992 and I've been back here since 2012 after my retirement. I am from Santa Fe originally as all of my family dating back 2000 years. Tucson has nothing to offer, Albuquerque beats Tucson in everyway. People who don't like it here need to leave immediately, but they won't, they just complain and whine.

I've lived in both cities, Albuquerque Wins!! - 4/5/2019
I was born in Santa Fe NM in 1969. My father is a retired Army officer, so at 12 years old we moved to El Paso. Then California, then Huntsville Alabama. I moved to Albuquerque in 1988. I joined the military in 1992. My 1st duty station was DMAFB in Tucson in 1993. I lived in Tucson for 18 years. I retired in 2012 and moved back to Albuquerque in 2012 to get away from the depressive heat, crime, lack of a freeway, and horrible job market in Tucson. I've lived in Albuquerque for a total of 11 years and in Tucson for 18 years...Im pretty sure many who are commenting HAVE NOT lived in both cities as long as I have. Albuquerque has a fantastic freeway system, largest zoo in the southwest, Aquarium, Cliffs amusement park, The countries longest tram to the top of the mountain, a surf facility, and great paying jobs. Tucson is retiree heaven. To many snowbirds who golf and complain. Albuquerque is far superior to Tucson in every way!! And I lived in both for about 30 years of my life. Crime in Tucson is horrible, here in Albuquerque, I have never experienced crime of any sort. Tucson is overrun by drugs and immigrants from Nogales Mexico. The Albuquerque skyline is lit up with colored lights, the freeway and overpasses are lit up with colored lights. Tucson doesn't have so much as a freeway to get around. You have to drive thru the city to get everywhere. Albuquerque wins hands down!
