A medium sized city with a population of 190,399 in the city itself, with a total of 444,094 in the metro/suburban areas.

The city contains one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country. Highly educated people, high-tech jobs.

The city suffers a few problems, the degrading downtown for one. In the late 90's several buildings in and around downtown suffered arson problems. Store owners were setting fire to buildings to collect insurance money. After that, in around 2000 the downtown started to get really bad. No more fires, but lots and lots of drug-dealing, prostitution, robberies, car-thefts etc. The bus-terminal is also a heaven for young teenage kids who like to act like they're from Brooklyn, talking shit to anybody.

Living in Kitchener is nice, if you have the money. High cost housing is leaving alot more people to move into ghetto neighbourhoods in the South Ward District of the city, and near Chicopee-Bridgeport. Ugly slab apartments, small houses, and crime are turning many areas into high-crime ghettos. If one can afford it though, the city is building pleanty of new, middle-class suburban areas. Tearing down forests and burying streams, developers are constantly building row upon row of identitcle houses on the outskirts of the city.

The lack of managed health care is showing. The recent lack of general-physicians is starting to show. Despite putting millions into the hospital, they're still struggling.

Despite the problems the city faces as it gets bigger and bigger, Kitchener is a fine place. One thing they need to do though, is build up, not out.
I was walking downtown and got approached by two kiddie drug dealers, followed by a crack head, saw various prostitutes, and had some pussy white kids wearing G-Unit clothing call me a 'bird'.

A town in Southern Ontario with a small population, of only 200'000. You can walk down one street and it will look like The Bronx, and the next street over it will look like your typical white suburb. Contains one housing project system, The Hallman Projects which are all over the Belmont / Brybeck area. The downtown is completly degraded and has become a paradise for drug dealers and prostitution. Neighbourhoods vary. They can be beautiful or comparable to Compton depending on where you are. Home to Chicopee Ski Hill and the Kitchener Rangers. Generally this town is one giant ghetto.
I was born in the Hallman Projects on Brybeck.

A real geographical anomaly. Any effort made to describe a place is futile. Most people cannot agree on what neighborhoods are called at all. Plus there are like 5 beechwoods. It’s really something.

The ultimate super-hero, an embodiment of all that is worthy of banter and legend. A word-perfect, awe-inspiring, claret and amber legend of Bingley, the Kitchenator's strengths lie in pulling, swimming, fisting and hole-punching.

Always imprecise, often seen on Tuesdays or maybe Wednesdays, wears a cape with a K on it and black speedos with claret and amber edging and a unique frontal design.

Never to be underestimated especially on the number of pals the Kitchenator has and the power of his magnificent banter.
Don't fear your BURDS are safe, the Kitchenator is here to save the day, kk.
