Re: “We Built This City

I live in Buffalo, New York, and came across this article on Planetizen. I thought Buffalo had it bad seeing we've lost more than half our population and we can't keep up with all the neighborhoods we need to demolish.

Poor Portland. You "only" generated 2,300 jobs in your new downtown district when you originally planned 10,000. You built 1,400 green condos but none of them are affordable. The packed sushi place at the South Waterfront has had to offer half-priced sushi platters in this ghost town to attract customers. Oh, and the dogs! So many dogs! This kind of suffering is too much to bear. Should we pass around a hat in Buffalo and send you some spare change?
