Well do you? 


I live in West Bromwich.


If you've heard of it before that statement's also a punchline.


I dont like it at all. Its old and run down, and not a place of renown. The people there are all lowlifes with no ambition including me. Ultimately I would not want to die here at all. I hope I can move to a more well off area. I know a place is not about how rich it is but at least one where cleanliness is the order of the day.


Id add some pictures but... wait here some are!




Sorry if you're eating I should label this NSFW. Not an attractive place to go to everyday. This pictures illustrates how much inspiration and joy doesn't go on here. 




This is near a crime offenders place and a pub full of drunks which means, you guessed it criminals hang around here! Hang on to your kids!


Hold your nose as you go past it smells of alcohol and rabies. Farts and diarrhea.






This ugly building is the local town hall. No one hardly ever uses it. Not even the local council. They hold meetings outside on the street.


Maybe it will collapse one day. I'm still hoping for that meteorite.


If you look close you can see a puddle of urine on the wall where I expressed my distaste for the ugly thing.

Looks a lot like Chichester. 


I live in Brighton and I'm pretty happy there. Moved down from London 18 years ago, didn't intend to stay more than a few years... life has ways of trapping you in places.

I live in San Antonio, Texas and it's pretty okay here. I like the nearby Hill Country, La Cantera, the Riverwalk, NISD, and the carspotting. I've honestly considered living here over Houston. Houston is nice and all but it is flat as hell, and to be honest flat places bore me.

I live in the northeastern suburbs of Pretoria, South Africa (as if anyone here cares), and I love it here. Especially the area where I live where THIS...


... is my backyard.

It's not my favourite place in the country though (Cape Town is), and i won't be living here for too much longer, but I still love it here. Only sound I hear is the occasional small plane coming in to land at the small airport nearby.


Just found this other photo on my phone from a few months ago. So here you see summer and winter :)

Cleveland, Ohio, and I have mixed feelings of it here. There's cities that are better, but at the same time it has a bad reputation that it doesn't deserve. The winters suck just like in the rest of the Midwest, there's many parts that are poor and dangerous, and the sports teams are rather disappointing. But at the same time, we have one of the best healthcare systems in the world (Cleveland Clinic, who cured my cousin of brain cancer when he had an 80% chance of not surviving), there's plenty of history, we have the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, we're less than 50 miles from the greatest amusement park on earth, and the city's on a comeback. Neighborhoods in and around Downtown which were distressed when all the factories shut down are redeveloping quickly. The Flats redevelopment project is the largest ongoing project east of the Mississippi. A casino opened here about 1-2 years ago, and another one's being built. Many of the suburbs have the best school districts in the state. I want to leave as I've lived here my whole life and want something new, but I'll miss it and might even come back down the line.

It seems a boring, old and cold town. It's not ugly but I wouldn't like to live there or in the UK (I hate the weather).

I like where I live. It's a nice little suburb with some actual character and very good schools. Just wish it wasn't so hot in the Summer...

Me too, I can't stand rainy/cloudy weather and I can't live without seeing sunshine in the morning, though I hate hot weather :)

On-topic: Yes I like the place where I live.

Near where I live, there's nice areas. But my area, sucks. Way too many rednecks and white trash.

Chicago, IL. Third largest city in America, famous for a lot of stuff, and Watch_Dogs takes place there now.



Honestly, I like it, but sometimes I think I'd rather live someplace else. For one, I just don't get how illogical the people who run this city can be. The mayor, the police captain, just a bunch of bad ideas coming out of all of them. And then I think a lot of people here are a little too prideful of where they're from. It's not the best place in the US, but don't tell them that.

I live in Brighton


I used to live just down the road in Littlehampton. It was fantastic on summer evenings, the only sandy beach on the West Sussex coast.

Not really. People are nice and quality of life is ok for most of the year but the winter just ruins it.

Catalonia would be a great place without separatists and Islamic ghettos, and without useful idiots like them:

I live in a small industrial city at the North Sea coast in Lower Saxony, Germany. Born and raised here and want to live here until I die. Just wish it was colder here.

It's okay. It's not exciting here, but it's beautiful.

My neighborhood was really cool.  That is why I settled here.  Since then it has changed.  Some would say for the better, and some would say for the worse.  Sure my property value increased 5X since I bought it, but I didn't buy as an investment...I bought as a home...a home in a cool neighborhood.


The very same corner my wife had a gun held to her head (about 16 years ago) is now an ultra hip cafe.  There have been foreign articles written comparing us to areas of Greece and Paris.  There is a f*cking elementary school where people sleep out on the sidewalk in hopes to get their kid enrolled in kindergarten...f*cking kindergarten!!!!  And they are devastated when they don't get in.


I'm no longer woken up by fir coat wearing pimps beating their hos at 3-4am.  They have been replaced by packs of drunk, young, white people singing really bad.


My long time neighbor once said to me "I miss the crack days when we had more parking".



If any of you are familiar with The Fresh Prince of Bel Air - I live a few blocks away from the school in the opening(West Philadelphia born and raised...)  Yup, it has changed that much.  No worries about playing b-ball after school anymore.  If that show was being done now, Will Smith, would probably be more concerned about his homework because his parents might not let him LARP in Clark Park if his grades drop below a 3.9

Well, I currently live in New Jersey. I don't mind it so much at the moment but after high school and when I go to college, I do look forward to leaving this sh*tty state. Right now, I have to live here.

You'd have an easier time convincing me to amputate my limbs with a rusty hatchet as opposed to convincing me that Florida is a nice place to live.

I do enjoy the city a lot, we have plenty of stadiums for Soccer, AFL and all that.


The botanical gardens is a very relaxing place.

The place where I live can be absurdly hot during the summer and quite cold during the winter, though snowfall seldom happens. It's also very humid during the whole year.


I live in the middle of the southernmost state of Brazil, in an average city called Santa Maria.


It's downtown:



A panoramic view from the North:



It's train station, which is a bit close to my home:



Annual Festival of Ballooning, which happens once a year during May:



You can view my whole neighborhood through here: (No, I'm not afraid of you, terrorist)




Overall, it's not that I hate my city or anything, but there are many, many places that I preffer over this.
