Sounds like my city, Seattle, Washington. I met few New Zealanders that just moved here from Auckland and they told me that Auckland is much similar to Seattle with geography and lifestyle. I have to go there and check it out.

By the way, can you do me little favor? Can you please take pictures of Auckland's most diverse neighborhood(s) (gays, lesbians, gothic/punk, hippes, etc.)? Thanks!

Thank you Auckland has its days - some days are better than others but we still have our fair share of litter bugs. The important thing is that the City Council attends to the "problem" areas fairly regularly.

I have heard many good things about SEA - I have also seen many pics and it looks awesome. I especially love all the leafy suburbs. I will try my best and keep an eye out for the requested subject matter - stay tuned

nice pics...I am a born and bred in Auckland and lived there for 24 years. Glad to say that I do NOT live there anymore but the city has improved greatly on a cultural front and other ways. I have lived in several world class cities and can say Auckland is one of the friendliest cities I ever lived in. I have spent the past 5 years mostly living/working and travelling in North American cities (SF, Vancouver, San Diego, NYC, Boston,Miami) I have lived several years in London and in Sydney. I am presently working in Seattle and plan to move to Frankfurt for a new project. Would love to see more pics of my hometown.

Haha so your from Auckland Urbandeco! No wonder all your negative comments about Christchurch in another thread. Here's a tip, keep them to yourself next time! Your opinion is far from valued. Just showing your true colours I guess.

Enigma, those are some of the best skytower photos I've ever seen! Skytower is so cool. I'm suprised that when they were building Q1 they didn't add another 9m to claim the title of southern hemisphere's tallest.

'Just Another ******* Aucklander' right? I've never used the term in my life. Listen, buddy I don't give a **** wether you like the place or not. Your nothing, that's why I said your opinion is not valued. These forums are not for rubbishing other people's cities so like I said keep your uneducated rhetoric to yourself.

FYI, Christchurch is 100 times better than your city, in so many ways, it's not just my opinion, or regarded by the masses as true, it's a scientific fact, proven by scientists. So no offence taken, I couldn't care less what you or your like minded insects like or not.

This ends, here and now.

Different strokes for different folks - Cities are like lovers - you are either attracted to them or you aren't ... nothing worse than being stuck in a miserable marriage

You have the right idea though - live in many cities and experience their special qualities. My bf and I are planning just that - Auckland will be our base and home but we will alternate between Melbourne, Sydney and Queenstown.

Be a citizen of the World

You are right - Auckland is changing by the hour. I have been here for 20 months now and the changes have been nothing less than phenomenal. Auckland's future is looking very bright.

Go well and I wish you all the best on your travels - Thanks for popping in and I promise to keep you updated - visually

Thank God they didn't LOL .... although it is only a matter of time and Skytower will lose the title ... mmmmmm *stop the clock*

Cartel - you always give me great feedback. Thanks Mate and remember for every 1 that hates a certain city, there are thousands who love it Food for thought Mate.
