    Portland Oregon. The first time I went was 15 years ago, it was a totally different city. Downtown was a cool, safe place to walk around. It's a fricking post apocalyptic ghost town now. 50 percent of the businesses are boarded up and abandoned. homeless people line the streets. The parks are filled with junkies. I would never visit again after my last trip.

      I was there (and up to Vancouver) in the late 80's and it was damn near paradise. It's been so bad in my visits there over the past few years I really don't want to go back...even my college friends that were 'cool' back then are unbearable. The people there really ruined it, despite being a beautiful landscape. Plus the meme that Chinese ruined Vancouver is unfortunately pretty true.

          Meth is a lot more commonplace on the west coast which makes the hobos violent and unpredictable. Some homosexual nodding off on fentanyl isn't exactly a threat to anyone but themselves and crack use has fallen off among east coast junkies. It's still around to be sure, but it's nowhere near as prevalent as it used to be in the bad old 80s when cities up and down the eastern seaboard had their streets lined with jittery, hopped up nig nogs. Now in those same places all you see are half-dead white junkies slumped over with the occasional black or beaner dealer circling them like vultures

    Paris, back in the 90s, was like it is now minus the throngs of idiots around every attraction. The hawkers were still pushy and annoying but they were far fewer of them. Locals were still haughty but even an attempt to speak French was enough for them.

    Basically all the shit stuff you have to deal with now just wasn’t a problem. Still coasting on that reputation a quarter century later.

      Paris in the 90s was amazing:

      1. The small amount of blacks and arabs it had were mostly business owners and well behaved, nothing like the Black folk/sand Black folk ruining the city now.

      2. Tourists were a lot less moronic. A lot less pick pockets and scammers around tourist attractions. A lot less chinese tourists.

      3. Local folks were much more relaxed and were more open to foreigners.

      4. The city was better maintained, streets weren't as dirty. Subway/Bus was actually fine.

      5. Restaurants/pubs actually served fresh food, now they all serve the same sous-vide microwaved garbage they buy from the same superstore for businesses. The only way to eat fresh food/real french food in Paris is to go to the high end restaurants and pay a fortune.

      6. Night life was the GOAT there, you could meet absolutely anyone from international drug dealers to movie actresses to sons of african dictators, shit was wild and the cops seemed to look the other way, which explains why cocaine was flowing in Paris night clubs at that time compared to now.

      Now the city is a run down shithole with woketards in every corner and Black folk/arabs everywhere. You can't even wear a nice watch at Place Vendôme without getting robbed by some refugee. Sad to see what wokism did to that city.

            I did a 2 week roadtrip through southern France in September 2019 with my gf. We did Nimes, Arles, Aix, Cassis, Gordes, Avignon, Roussillon and Orange. The food was fricking amazing, but I marked a lot of restaurants on google maps before the trip. French food and wine is the real deal. We never had a single problem on the entire roadtrip. But one day when we were in Arles on a weekend, it was a market day. Hundreds of Muslims flooded the city from Marseille. It looked like a different country. At the end up the day, they packed up their junk, and they were all gone. You couldn't pay me to go to Marseille or Paris after seeing that market.

              I actually grew up in Paris in the 90s.
              Many neighborhoods got gentrified, like the one in which I am living (18th). Real estate has gotten so crazy expensive over here that it drove away shitskins and poorgays. The ones remaining are those living in HLM (welfare housing), and while they do bring the quality of life down, they are nowhere as bad as those living in the banlieues, e.g. no chimping out.
              That doesn't mean that there are less shitskins; it simply means that they mainly come to work/shop in some neighborhoods in which they are outnumbering everything else (Château d'Eau, Château Rouge, Simplon...) before fricking back off to their banlieue with public transport.

              Of course, the consequence of expensive real estate is that shitskins are now settling in middle-sized cities. Middle-sized cities have deteriorated a LOT in less than 10 years.
              I went to Nantes in 2009 and thought it was a great, safe, overwhelmingly white city. My non-French mother was surprised by how quaint it was.
              Now it's a proper shithole, possibly worse than Paris' worse neighborhoods.
              I used to go to middle-sized cities to escape from shitskins, now they are everywhere.

              It feels cleaner and a bit safer than before over here, but not the same can be said for every neighborhood. For example, 19th and 20th are still shitholes but they are on on the process of gentrification as well.
              However, while there are less apparent crimes, the few crimes left are much more violent.

    It's been discussed many times, but the Las Vegas strip. Ever since they legalized weed, it's a fricking nightmare. I used to visit 3 times a year, but I've cut down to once a year now and I avoid the strip. The last straw for me was last year when a homeless person walked up to me and grabbed my friendly Labrador by the scruff of his neck and tried to hurt him for no reason. It happened in the middle of the day with a crowd around. On that same trip, I saw a black guy break into a work truck at Mandalay Bay, and I watched someone get pickpocketed on the bridge at the MGM. It's all fueled by the addicts that flock to vegas.

          10 years ago the Rio was the best deal in Vegas. You could get legit suite for $150 night. The Voo Doo Lounge on top of the Rio was one of the coolest bars in vegas. And the Seafood Buffet was one of the best places to eat in the city. But the Rio is fricking ghost town now. Half the casino is abandoned. The only people you'll see are blacks from the ghetto because the rooms are like $50/night. The Rio is as bad as Circus Circus now.

        Gentrification and its consequences has been a disaster for Glasgow. I mean if you’re one of the Londoners who moved up and started a sourdough bakery it’s fab but it’s created a spike in prices and turned most of the under 50 locals into rent cattle. As a result the soul of the city is being obliterated and it is just turning into a less poncy Edinburgh without a Royal Mile.

        It’s a terrible shame. Glasgow was famously wretched as it deindustrialised but it had turned into something special. And now you get people complaining about flat whites not using oat milk.

Zoomer women are so unbearable and they have so many simps and orbiters and chads in speed dial it is not worth it all to pursue. Even in college I felt this way despite getting lucky a few times.

            Most of those complaints are about how they are not trad wife material or whatever. I am sure they are just whorish and annoying but American woman take the cake for hypergamy on steroids. In places like Spain there is still a component of a social and outgoing society and most people are friendly by default. And bars and clubs have good ratios because of non cucked 21+ laws that literally halve the amount of women in any establishment and the ones that go are jaded roasties that are already 10 chad dicks deep from the frat parties they went to who want to get out wif da gurls and just swat away any man that approaches them unless he is Chad. Plus no legalized prostitution turns every man here into a pussy starved giga simp who bases their entire worth on how much pussy they slay, and as a result every gasses up fat chicks and pussy hyperinflation commences.

            >Every bar and club is an absolute sausage fest and literally no one wants to branch off their groups they come with from their high school, college, or the packs of pajeets or Asians that know each other through whatever
            That's not a genZ thing. I'm 37 and only really hang out with friends from high school

            I graduated during COVID and do not talk to a single person from college, and mostly see my high school friends. Its so bleak, I like them but all of the ones who are not turbo normies are leaving and the ones who stay are the ones stuck in middle school.

            I am also an older zoomer and can't even imagine how it is for younger ones in high school, if you didn't have a friend group in high school around here you are fricked.

        I’m tired of white women being used as a safe catch all for terrible behavior of all westernized women (actually most well off modern women). Don’t get me wrong jessica’s take the cake for the worst behaved but there is no difference in my eyes between an Asian American and a white snow bunny, if anything alor of brown and ethnic chicks develop weird complexes about it and it seeps into everything. Once they are in college and thrown around they feel shame about it and turn into all men are trash feminists and white men are evil yet solely get with white chad lites (aren’t attractive enough for chads)

          I didn’t get a chance to respond right away and somewhat agree with you, but I do think theres value in it because this is the only way you can criticize female behavior at all. Also I saw it on SighSee because I hate /misc/gay paganlarper and tradcuck simps. Also I will say, I can’t even get my dick hard for white women anymore IRL tbh kek

        You're just old. Obviously 18-25 year olds won't hang out with a guy in their forties bar a few exceptions, like being very successful and still looking young and attractive.

        Dude, I'm only 26 and I get the exact same impression. Half the people my age have little mutts with their ugly wives, and they're not out past 1am anymore. It's looking like I'll have to move back to the city soon if I still want a life.

    A different kind of decay to most in this thread, but a lot of Japanese cities under 200,000 people are quite simply dying. I went to a few towns in Chugoku chihou and Shikoku in the early 2000s and passing through them again recently, seeing how nothing much has changed besides getting rustier was pretty depressing. You can look at their city hall data and most show continuous population declines for 30 years. All the young go to the metropolises, so there are entire streets where nearly every store is shuttered, buildings are falling into disrepair, and no capital is coming in, which makes more people leave, resulting in a death spiral.

      Actually this perfectly captures what’s gone on (or rather hasn’t) in many small to mid size U.K. towns. Although the turning point was 2008, when the supply of fake capital evaporated. These places have had no new gubmint money since and half the youth leave once they finish school, never to return.

      My hometown is one. Went back for a funeral for the first time in many years. Nothing has improved. Well there’s now a Belgian cafe selling imported bottled beer to the lawyer and doctor class. That’s it. Big shopping centre is half empty; couple of small new estates that are utterly soulless; school buildings I last went in around 2001 still there only with fewer kids in them. Even the cycle paths have gotten overgrown and abandoned.

        No, you're just moronic and got zero pallet like the average muttoid of your kind. Industrial grade food in french restaurants actually was a national scandal that made the news not long ago in France because the notion of "homemade" wasn't even covered by law there. As a result people reheating microwavable garbage and sprinkling some parsley on top to serve it to dumb frick american tourists like you was and is still common practice.

        You're not eating "fresh" food in Paris unless you're going to the best known restaurants. The average bistro/small mom and pops restaurant will just sell you shit.

        Here's an example even though it's in french.

        But keep eating the french goyslop and calling people larpers lmao

        If you want to go on the piss in your great grandpappy’s homeland Ireland is a great visit. Everyone happy to take your money and you’ll have a whale of a time

        If you want to actually do stuff: Dublin has been completely pozzed by globohomosexual but is still worth a day or two with some interesting sights and history (and, yes, have a Guinness at the factory if you must)

        Rural Ireland is still a damp and depressing place to actually live in, often with traveller problems, but places like the Atlantic coast are a nice summer trip

    Toronto.

    First gentrification made it increasingly gay and boring. They got rid of a lot of the fun stuff (i.e. strip clubs and street hookers who weren't old crackheads) and replaced them with condos, airbnbs, and pretentious night clubbers popping bottles to impress stuck-up hoes.

    Second COVID came and government shut down everything. Because of this housing prices skyrocketed due to real estate speculation, inflation surged, a lot of businesses closed permanently, making the city look like one of those decaying burn out rust belt towns, and there's angry homeless dudes everywhere stabbing people to death.

    I can cite two very different examples. First is my home city of San Francisco, which over the decades I lived there became both seedier and more sterile. Everyone knows about the endemic homelessness problem, which honestly didn’t get that much worse over the years until first meth and then COVID and its associated economic decline encouraged some noticeable spikes in property crime. Still an embarrassment, but also still not as bad as its reputation in most of the city. Worse in my opinion was the big tech bloat and its impact on an already completely fricked-up housing market. A city that is still really uncommonly beautiful in terms of climate, architecture, and geography became too expensive for anybody but a multitude of boring tech kids who could afford million-dollar-plus condos but put nothing at all worthwhile into local culture, or even into the local economy—they only shop online, so local retail suffered. They don’t go to concerts or dive bars or cultural offerings, so creative things to do and see started to wither. And the artsy weirdos and freaks and punks and others who kept the city really vibrant and interesting despite all its flaws just about all got priced out. So now you’ve got Whole Foods with armed guards, a diminishing number of good places to eat, no local bands or places for them to gig, and fewer and fewer local businesses worth supporting. The underclasses who can’t afford to get out get squeezed harder and harder, and the rich whine louder and louder about it. There are tiny remnants of the good parts of SF all over the place, and I think it’s still worth visiting, but I wasn’t that sad when I finally left.

    On the other side of the world, when I first visited Vientiane, Laos, in 1995, it was a sleepy little nowhere of a village that still didn’t really let hippies in (most nationalities still had to get visas in advance, and they didn’t issue that many). There were as many bicycles on the streets as private cars…

      You could walk down the crumbling colonial sidewalks (now jammed with motorcycles) and be the only foreigner visible, perhaps apart from an aid worker or diplomat or exchange student from some developing country that was still trying to be Marxist. I obviously can’t condemn economic development, as I’m sure it has made some lives better, but nobody benefits from letting white people with dreadlocks get drunk in the morning. The city is overbuilt, crowded, and increasingly ugly, with an infrastructure that can’t handle its current levels of traffic.
