Jesus christ al.com, naming a suburb as “number 1 city!” what’s next? olive garden as favorite restaurant? sadly i think this would be the case should any statewide poll be conducted. Anyway, al.com ran a stupid article about the 10 best “cities” (lol, cities in alabama) and mountain brook was the winner! it was the winner because it is painfully white and some of the shops look like an english village and all the white people make a lot of money y’all!
these lists are usually complete bullshit and this one is the bullshittiest of them all. here’s the only list you’ll ever need: all the cities in alabama suck a dick. they’re horribly planned, have few to no walkable areas, lack decent public transportation, are bereft of coffee shops and locally owned business of any sort. birmingham is trying, they’ve got like one street that almost looks like a real city…until you walk around a block and you are reminded that most of the city looks the zombie apocalypse started a month ago and omg you just woke up in a hospital where the fuck did all the people go?
One city that was shamefully left off this list is Florence. Florence actually has most of the shit you’d want in a city. It’s got some coffee shops ans restaurants. It’s got a world class fashion designer who seems to legitimately care about developing the community. It’s got the only Frank Lloyd Wright house in the state. It’s a place that doesn’t feel like the sort of place where a good old boy’s gonna call you a queer because your jeans fit. Look at it!
