It doesn't have a monopoly on topography. The economy is ashambles. The population is aging and the city dies a little more every day.
LOL. WV and Up State NY ???? You're joking right? Sure they're beautiful (My family is from WV and I lived in Ithica) But you wanna talk about economics? The poverty in those places is shameful.
California, Colorado? (I lived in Colorado Springs in 1975-76 My brother has lived in the Bay Area for 20+ years.) Those places are overpopulated with A cost of living that's astronomical.
Carolina... Maybe... but it ain't home.
And by the way, name one other city of over 300,000 that has professional sports teams in three sports, a confluence of rivers
, mountains, and a cost of living that is in the bottom 20% of the country?
You're right about the economy. It needs fixed in the worst way. But please don't say that the city doesn't have a monopoly on topography. It does.
