The problem with rating cities is how we define what's good. A "rising" city that looks good on paper ( ie..money, development etc ) may not have as high a quality of life as some cities that are "declining" or also-rans. Prosperity=sprawl=low quality of life IMO, although there are some cities that make an honest effort to mitigate this. Ask anyone who lives in one of those 'Best 100 cities to live in' some periodicals love to list....They'll probably say they're flattered, and... Please do not move here! Live where it works for you.

My #1 city on the rise would be Houston, TX, USA. From what I understand, it is growing REALLY fast. My dad just bought an apartment complex there because of Houston's fast paced growth.

I know this is kinda contraversial, but hey, this is Airliners.net... I think Detroit, MI, USA is a city on the rise. I think it has already declined. The new mayor here, Dennis Archer is doing a good job (along with evereyone else in the city) to clean up Detroit's act. But I think it will be all better when I'm not ashamed to say that I'm from Detroit. Actually, I'm from Oakland County, in the suburbs which are a lot nicer than the city by like 300X. This is where all the auto execs and such live. Not to brag or anything. I just want people to know that Detroit isn't all that bad. There are very nice parts of Michigan!!

Nassau???????

Have you been there in the last 15 years? My grandparents live in Lyford on the other side of the island, and dude we took a trip over to see atlantis a few weeks ago, Nassau is in complete and utter squalor. Its not the charming British colonial town it once was, overrun, congested, dirty, and disgusting. Traffic crawls nowhere, buildings in midconstruction lie abandoned, tourist shops sell liquor and cigars to americans, and abaonded dogs roam all over. Very very sad....with the exception of rich american's on paradise island or the holdouts from the colonial era in Lyford, no investment, money, or wealth in nassau at all. It's really depressing.

Regards,
Russell

On the rise: Tel Aviv, Israel, high technology capital of the middle-east. ICQ, Checkpoint, Akami, and many many more....More Israeli companies went public last year on the NYSE than any other country! Now if the Palestinians would agree to peace.....

I was in Nassau in 1995 & stayed in The Atlantis on Paradise Island. I found Nassau to be the same way you described it.

I agree, Houston is growing quickly, but almost too quickly. It's a really disorganized city with barely any public transit (although we are building a light rail). Houston is very similar to LA, and may be as big as LA one day. We need to clean up our air though.
