They call their downtown "uptown." Rather pretentious, don't you think?
No, it isn't pretentious; it's a Southern thing you don't understand.
Charlotte is so beautiful. Uptown or downtown or even the surrounding suburbs. The freeways are lined with lush green. I just love it.
Hillary had her headquarter in a posh area downtown. Across the street was filled with high-end boutiques.
North and South Carolina are just beautiful in general. Heck, the South is beautiful. The people, not so much.
This is Charlotte, hon, former "Textile capital of the US" with 600 mills within a 50 mile radius.
Those banks are there because of tobacco and the mint, and a lenient attitude towards accounting tricks and money laundering.
But what is Charlotte really offering the world today?
That is it once had 600 miles within 50 miles. I don't know if there are any thereabouts anymore.
Isn't Charlotte the Civil War city where, upon the approach of the Northern troops, had the businessmen going "Here's the keys, come on in, don't burn it down."?
r3 I'm just telling you it's beautiful. I don't know what it has to offer the world. I like lush green and wooded area and Charlotte offers that. The home I was staying at looks like Hidden Valley. Quiet and idyllic. So green. So different from the cities I've grown up in.
New Orleans did that too, R5
It's rare for Catholics to have a foothold in the Catholic south as they do at Belmont Abbey
