That you'll see celebrities all the time. Only in certain areas.

That everyone is fake or wanna be actress. Again only in certain areas, most ppl are regular folks like any other city

Orlando.

That its all Disney and that's it. We've got a great (but small) downtown that pops the eff off. Sunday Funday in Orlando is wild :pimp:.

That NYC has no houses and backyards. People actually believe this.

That's good to know. I had that misconception.

I guess it depends on what scene you're trying to fit into. I think some people go out there and try to fit in that scene and get rejected/cant keep up and get mad and just go off on that scene alone when it's not a real representation of the place as a whole. They're the vocal minority. Makes sense.

to keep it simple don't believe everything u see on tv/internet. All those poverty pics are small lil neighborhoods, they dont show the good side.

Everything you've heard about San Diego is true. We have the best weather and women and is the best place to live in America.

I always wondered about Detroit.

Atlanta.

Yes, it seems to be an influx of homosexuals, but to be honest, they keep to themselves. Plus, from what I've seen, they tend to congregate in different hubs around the city. For the most part, they seem to have gotten tired of being ridiculed by the masses, so they've become recluse and stick to their own crowd. In my experience living in Atlanta, they only "try you" if you give them reason to. If you treat them like any other person on the street and not make it a point to acknowledge their gayness, you've got nothing to worry about.

Other than that, the ******* are indeed bad as all ***** in this city. You can see a classy joint with high hopes, aspirations and a good head on her shoulders walk by, followed by the most beautifully ratchet joint wearing them shorts that show all of her thighs, thus revealing the tattoo that proves without a doubt that the ***** is indeed part cheetah.
