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.

You go if you mentioned Phoenix!!!!! Phoenix is awesome!!!!! Population has been booming the last 10 years. I think Phoenix is the next Los Angeles.

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 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.

Well I am surprised that nobody said Salt Lake City and the greater SLC area. For years it has been in the top 10 list, and has been growing. In 2002 it will host the World's winter olympics, bringing everyone in the world to Utah. In fact there is a commercial on TV right now.."Light the fire within" Salt Lake City has an incredible backyard... with 5 national parks/national recreation areas, and 10+ ski resorts within an hours drive. Construction is going on like crazy, with expanded freeways, expanded public transportation, and new schools and neighborhoods. I have lived a few places and I can say I always love comming "home" to SLC.


Anyone that has been to Salt Lake City care to comment?

San Francisco is NOT growing that rapidly. It's a land-locked city for goodness sake, with water on three sides and other cities to the South. San Francisco had about 770,000 people in the 1970's, compared to roughly 730,000 today.

The Bay Area, however, is a fast-growing area, especially the East Bay.

Seattle is also pretty much in the same boat. Not much growth in the actual city, but a lot in surrounding areas.

What do you mean Indy becoming the next NYC?

IMO I think the whole midwest is going to decline. I recently read how Chicago is way behind in this new tech revoloution compated to SF, LA and NYC along with Raleigh and Austin and Houston.

San Francisco is not growing too rapidly due to the rediculous cost of living and relatively small area (like EIPremier said, water on three sides).

I agree Las Vegas is on the rise. Since 1990, the state of Nevada has had more people move to it than any other state and I dont think people will be moving to Beatty, Nevada, they will be moving to Las Vegas. A couple of people said Reno, I think it is growing a bit but not near as fast as some of the others. We are getting lots of restaurants like Claim Jumper, Romano's Macaroni Grill, On The Border, etc. The number of passengers to the airport has gone down in the past couple of years though.

However, for those of you who have said Houston, one glaring problem about the city continues to come forth in my mind. It is the largest city in the country without zoning laws, meaning that (theorectically speaking, not saying that this would happen) a strip club could be next to a church.
DFW by far is growing along with Austin and San Jose in terms of the new techno-economy, and still one fact remains about the DFW metroplex: Outside of all the coastal cities, New York, LA, etc., it has the most diversified economy out of any metropolitan area in the country, unlike its southern rival, Houston, where the Oil and Gas industry make up a large percentage of the economy.

I am sure that the AA hub, plus UPS and FedEx hubs, have helped Dallas a whole lot. Plus you've got all that land. But I understand about zoning laws. Calfornia is subdivision heaven.

Sarasota, Florida and it's immidiate suburbs are growing like wildfire!

There is some urban renewal going on in Downtown Detroit, but they've got a LONG WAY TO GO.

Detroit's suburbs: West Bloomfield, Novi, Northville, Farmington, Farmington Hills, Walled Lake, Canton, Plymouth, and even some more outlying suburbs like Brighton, Heartland, Pinckney, and Howell are really growing quickly.

They are doing the same amalgamation thing here in Ottawa. As of January 1st, 2001, none of the suburbs - where at least half the population lives - exist anymore, including mine.   I still have no idea what to do for a former suburb address when writing a letter!

Nobody has mentioned Albuquerque, New Mexico. It's grown to it's boundaries in the north, south, and east, and is now spreading across the "west mesa" on the other side of the Rio Grande. So much so that the city wants to extend the Paseo del Norte (a boulevard) across the river to the new developments -- right through Petroglyphs National Monument! (There would be a land-swap involved, but some of the best glyphs would be destroyed.)

Anyway, WorldTraveler, does that mean my friends who live(d) in Nepean now live in Ottawa?
