NYC is the city where everything happens. LA is the movie capital, NYC is the fashion capital, DC is the national capital but I must say there is not one city that compares to NYC. Not South Beach, LA, or DC and I have been to all! There are so many museums, arts and fashion, culture, restaurants, historic landmarks, shopping. Living here is certainly fun for me but I am looking for more!

To all of you, do you actually believe that ajc’s weekend bets are ALL that’s going on in this city? I never even heard of half of this stuff, obviously some of you haven’t been here very long…its a shame how people try and down this city be talking about how we don’t compare to NYC this or L.A. that, or Chi-town whatever….Yes, I have been/lived in at least two of those cities and NOTHING is what it seems…. ATL has just as much going on as any other city, you just have to know where to go, the time, the day, etc. just like any other city I have been in….
