ive lived in or around the city almost my whole life. Prepare for thr most unfriendly depressed people you have ever met. Public transportation is cheap and always available but the people can be just gruesome. its okay though, everyone is used to it. i saw a bum with a knife sitting next to a business man with a tablet and nobody flinches.
as far as living here it blows and jobs arent the easieat to come by. seriously, some people make a career at working at a chain restaurant. unless you have something to come here for or a jpb lined up, fuck it.
also, guarrenteed. shithole of an apartment youll be living out of.
