Albuquerque not only one of the best places in NM but one of the best cities in America, beautiful full of diversity and culture and a wonderful population of proud surprisingly intelligent, welcoming people , other than the crappy gangs that flood this area and influence the poorer populations ,but no worse than most larger cities here in America. Some of the best weather in the USA, with cool nights and mildly hot days. Some of the best site seeing and literally a mile high+ city , set next to the Beautiful Sandia moutains, with one of the only wild larger river known as the infamous Rio Grand, which is beautiful up north where Burque (Albuqerque) is located. The worst of Albuquerque such as the education system,and violence is being eradicated,and or fixed rapidly. Ive live in Memphis, LA, ST Louis,Little Rock, and Denver, which all fall short of the qualities of Albuquerque and contains all the "shitty" qualities. for instance BAD WEATHER,huge ghettos. weather in Denver and occasionally LA are fine but are still terrible compared to ALB .The south valley has a home/cozy feel that contains "white hispanic" people as well as "native American hispanic", but for the most part is mixed between the two the rest of the city also has a big "anglo white" , and Native American population the area is NOT a place where u have to take race in consideration,, like most of ALB racism doesn't exist,,, the huge migration from the rest of the USA brings racism buts dies off eventually.
albuquerque is a beautifiul place mountains
