The Cap. of Arizona. Also I from Phoenix and I dislike that people dis us. These are the reasons why people should think differently:

1. Unlike other major cities in The U.S.A. we have not been around as long so this is why we have not built up a soulness to say such as other cities that have been around for over 100+.

2. Scottdale is not the only nice place. Glendale has a lot a really nice areas.

3. We can't help the fact that we have many illegals what are we going to due just pick up the state and more it so we are not next to it. Furthermore why does California not get talked about for all of its illegals.

4. We can't help that we don't have a port. I am sorry that we are land-locked and yes we did that just to make you mad.

5. Now if Phoenix as many people moving here then who is to blame about the driving. Let me think the people moving her more than likely becuase they out number native born.

6. I can't help Sun City and the Snow Birds. Maybe people who make fun of them now will become them when they are old to get from the cold.

7. Ya, we have bad public schools but that is why there are private schools. People look up Xavier College Prep and Brophy College Prep. They are some of the best in the USA.

8. I'm sick of people from the Midwest thinking that this place is great. Then moving back to the cold becuase they did not like this place and deciding to just bad mouthing it to get over it. Why don't you think about is wrong with were you live.

9. Get it though your head that it hot here not '70-80 8 months out of the year. That is a good one.

10. If it is hot and so sunny then there would be a good chance of getting skin cancer but then again that is just common sense to me. Why aren't people sayin that about California is it is sunny there.

11. since we are not a old city we have not develop a mass-transit system just over time like older cities.

12. People who say there is not culture are wrong you have to really live here to get to it.

13. We have our slums be every city does so get over it.

14. ASU does party but other school are coming to learn how to run there Recreation Major just like ASU.

The capital of the state of Arizona and 4th largest city in the United States of America.
Phoenix is the 4th largest city in the U.S. This is a correction to previous reports of it being 5th and 6th by other authors.

A correction to previous erroneous definitions regarding this city in the desert. The largest city and capital of Arizona which is the 4th largest city in the United States of America, not the 5th as suggested in previous descriptions.
Chauncey Schmidt only likes to visit the Valley of the Sun's primate city of Phoenix in the dead of winter when the lake effect makes Buffalo a white out.

A phoenix is a mythical bird with a colorful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet. It has a 500 to 1,000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again. The new phoenix is destined to live as long as its old self. It is said that the bird's cry is that of a beautiful song. The phoenix is known by many different nations. Greek -Φοῖνιξ Arabic - العنقاء Persian - سيمرغ Chinese - ( fenghuang) 鳳凰 Japanese - ( fushichō) 不死鳥 Russian -Жар-Птица Christian writers justified their use of this myth because the word appears in Psalm 92:12 LXX Psalm 91:13. However, it was the flourishing of Christian Hebraist interpretations of Job 29:18 that brought the Joban phoenix to life for Christian readers of the seventeenth century. The first modern Greek currency bore the name of phoenix. The constellation Phoenix, was introduced in the late 16th century by sailors organized by Petrus Plancius, probably one of Keyser or de Houtman and displayed on a globe from 1597 created by Hondius.
The phoenix is a mythical sacred firebird that originated in ancient Phoenician mythology (according to Sanchuniathon), Chinese mythology, Egyptian religion and later Greek mythology.

Ultra-incredible french electro-indie-pop group, formed after Darlin split. The other members formed a different group called Daft Punk. Darlin is the french equivalent of heaven, from which Phoenix and Daft Punk came down from.

A mythological bird made of flames. The phoenix is most commonly known as a symbol of rebirth, due to it's being able to rise from its ashes after death.
The majestic phoenix soared over the valley.
