Big Rustbelt cities vs. Small/midsized Sunbelt cities

5710 Views 57 Replies 13 Participants Last post by  NLouisianaJay
Which do you see poised to perform better in the years to come: big Rustbelt cities (e.g., Detroit, Cleveland, Pittsburgh) or small/midsized Sunbelt cities (e.g., Raleigh, Huntsville, Jacksonville), and why?

P.S.--I'm considering metro/urbanized area populations when I speak of size.

If the status quo continues, the latter may have an edge but the former has the advantage for growth due to the infrastructure being there...sure, Pittsburgh or Detroit probably will never have population growth as fast as Raleigh or Jacksonville, but they can tackle the growth if it comes back better than those cities which were small until recently.
