    What cities you been to that felt weird, odd, or strange to you. Not for any direct reason, but just the atmosphere of the city or it's people.

    If you see your city feel free to comment!


    Washington DC
    Went with my wifey for a short stay while on a road trip to a friend's baby shower in Charlotte, NC. I'm drivin up to a perfect view of Capitol Hill at night thinkin, good ole Chocolate City! This is gonna be the bomb!

    Saw all the tourist sites during the day. Loved it. But the night before the wifey and I lit up a thick one and went out to check out what was nearby.

    To begin with, people in DC--or at least this area, we stayed at the W hotel--seem..."reserved." I felt like I was surrounded by robots. Like people just walk or sit about keep completely to themselves, ignoring their surrounding. Also it was around midnight or so, in a hotel/bar district, and the streets were dark and almost empty. Strange.

    We hear some Hip Hop playing outside this one spot and decide to go check it out. The music is all old school Hip Hop and club-R&B...not bad...but they all sound like cheesy knock offs. Maybe it was really obscure old school stuff. It could have been royalty free Soundcloud tracks for all I know. but we didn't hear anything we knew. Just some random late 90s/early 2000s sounding Hip Hop.

    Everyone was wearing suits and ties. Maybe it was an after work spot. So we felt kinda weird walking up in there with shirts, jeans and kicks thinking we found black folks spot. Mostly young white, Indians and Asians.

    But the most bizarre shyt was their dancing. Instead of some two steppin, rockin, bumpin and grinding going on the motherfukkers are bouncing around like ball room dancers to what sounds like a bad Ginuwine knock off. :gucci:This is strange even by white college bar standards. Again, like we were surrounded by robots.

    Overall, even by day, going to restaurants or shopping around and stuff, DC people just seem really "off" and reserved.

    We got the hell on with our road trip the next night. Arrived in Charolette, enjoyed the day life and went to this packed strip joint/party wit all black folks and a DJ/MC. The jams was on deck from Nas to Future. Felt right at home :ahh:


    Dallas, Texas
    This one actually had kind of a bad back story. One of my more simp moments of the past. Skipped class to drive from NYC all the way to this city (20 fukking hours) for this older lady I was fukkin at the time. She claimed she desperately needed to see her family for a personal reason but had no car, couldnt afford a flight, none of her broke friends had a car, and I was the only one who could come to the rescue before it was too late. p*ssy was good tho.

    To start, I did not see big downtown Dallas while I was there. It felt weird being in a city where people don't....you know....go outside. Everyone drives from place to place, and if you're walking you look like a psycho. Just weird to me, as a East Coast dude. No corner stores, no bodegas, No noise. Drive-in everything. Every place you need to get to is in a mall or plaza. Just a weird city to me. I can see myself retiring away here, but man, not for me at this point in my life.

    With that said, as a foodie, the restaurant game in Dallas was glorious! Maaaan, the food, atmosphere, service, vibe. Dallas knows how to eat. I'd go back just for food (and see downtown) alone.


    DC and Dallas fam, where did I go wrong?

    Parts of the city makes you feel like you're in some old 1930s movie. You can walk around the city for weeks without seeing a single black person. The fact that there is light (daylight) outside at 230-3AM doesn't help either:merchant:

    From the time I landed in the airport I felt weird. All these different varieties of white people and very few blacks. It's a bit creepy. Then you drive around the town and it's more and more Anglo whites so over with a few black neighborhoods here and there. And they say it's The South that's segregated...:sas1:

    Burlington, Vermont was definitely different. Spent a month there, though it charmed me after awhile...

    Saw maybe 50 black people the whole month I was there...

    Small town NC cities are very, very weird. Lumberton, Smithfield, Rocky Mount. Backwoods rednecky Get Out vibes...

    Norfolk, Va is weird too...

    Pittsburgh.

    Had those dusty rust-belt vibes. Like some shyt I seen out of an old school textbook...:scusthov:

    Was thrown off by how completely different the vibes are from Philly (or the tri-state area in general), bein that PGH sits in PA. It's a completely Midwestern vibe. Like how I'd picture a Cleveland or Cincy to be...:gag:

    Downtown was :trash:. With the way PGH is always portrayed IMO, (Steelers - "The Steel Curtain", Pirates, Penguins, etc.)...the sports lore...I expected a bigger city feel.

    Segregation levels were on tilt too...:scusthov:

    Those..."The n*gg*** hang up on the hill over there..." vibes. :mjpls:

    PGH got no culture outside of steel-mill cacs...so the hoods were just dusty. Food a disappointment. Back to the future vibes...2019 elsewhere...2016 still in PGH...:dead: so easy to eat female wise...no disrespect....:hubie:

    Just an all-around disappointment tho...:aicmon:
