I think some people get confused with those who say "why would I go downtown, there is nothing to do down there. It's dirty, dangerous, expensive and a pain in the ass." compared with those who say "I don't need to go downtown because I have no interest in what it has to offer." The latter are contempt with their suburban lifestyles and that's fine, whereas the former have no clue in what's going on down here and make assumptions that it's still dirty, dangerous, expensive and a pain in the ass. Not everyone needs or wants to come down here. I absolutely love being down here: living here, shopping here, eating, drinking, being entertained, etc. At the same time, I have a segment of suburban friends who don't frequent downtown or the surrounding neighborhoods much at all. Some ponder why I choose to live down here. My opinion is that it's better, but that's just my opinion. I don't try and play the "my neighborhood is better than yours because it's urban" card. Some (and I know a few) who live down here try and shove their lifestyle down others throats because it's "better". It's almost elitism.
Downtown, SN, VV, IV, GV, BD are not for everyone.
