Polluted and crime ridden nowadays. Once a great city, but those days are gone.

Traffic is horrible, and so is crime.

Tech opportunities are slowly waning as many get sacked lately in this sector.

Decent up and coming city with a lot of potential, but also some growing pains. Healthcare resources are sorely lacking. Crime can be bad south of I-20, and downtown is somewhat sketchy. Midtown and surrounding areas east and west of it are much more appealing day and night, and development has been centered around those areas. Great, mild climate though humid.

Awful traffic with a lack of sensical methods of transportation such as a developed train/bus system. This is somewhat due to NIMBY residents in surrounding counties who are concerned of criminals, or homeless reaching their neighborhoods through public transit. But if you ask anyone who has to drive on the I-285, 75, or 85... they may agree that its time to reconsider. Either way, Criminals have cars too and will come to your neighborhood anyway if they want to(and they do).

Outstanding parks around the city(especially stone mountain) but in the city, west from piedmont park is a bit of a parks and rec desert. The beltline is a wonderful project that should continue to expand.

Decent food in the city. Lots of asian options. In the city suburbs, its trial and error.

High cost of living, but lots of tech opportunities especially if you are a software engineer or in IT. A little less expensive than say Denver or Miami.

Overall, a growing city with lots of potential and a easy climate if you hate the cold but also dont mind the heat. Its car centric and might not change its mind on being so, therefore if you like walkable cities that allow you to enjoy your neccessities and meet people on foot, this city might not be for you unless you live close to the center. If you can handle the LA traffic and prefer a car centric lifestyle however, you can do far worse.

If you like hearing police and ambulance sirens all day, this is your place.

Hows my quality of life?

Oh you know, it is so normalized to the point that someone straight up shooting and murdering a particular ethnic group in several different places is considered a 'bad day' for someone by our local sheriff selling shirts that say 'chyna-virus'.

Hows your day in traffic going?
