-Downtown

-South Memphis

-North Memphis

-Midtown

-East Memphis

-Bartlett

-Germantown

-Collierville

-Desoto County

-other

I set up a poll based on bluff2085's earlier post...

Depends on what you call the area between E. Parkway and Highland. Has that ever been settled?

^I always took it as being Midtown up to Highland, and East Memphis after that. A lot of older Memphians I talk to like to tell about remembering when the city limits basically stopped at Highland--but then Memphians older than them tell similar stories about East Parkway :P

I guess I see Overton Park and Fairgrounds/Cooper Young as two of the more notable centerpieces of Midtown, and figure that Midtown's "boundaries" must stretch a little further east than them.

On the poll, Cordova is glaringly absent, but I marked other.

Can't believe I forgot Cordova! Oops. Sorry! :blush:

I heard a new term (new to me) for the area between East Pkwy. and Goodlett -- "Old East Memphis". That would include Highland Strip/U of M and parts of Highland Terrace.

Personally, I think Midtown stops at Pkwy.

Don't forget one of the fastest growing towns in the area...Arlington!

I've heard that Oakland, TN (is that in Shelby or Fayette?) is the fastest growing city/municipality in the country...has anyone else heard this? My friend who goes to UT was told this by several professors in her hospitality courses. Apparently it may get a few hotels.

Merging seems to have killed the poll.........

I will work on fixing this.

Okay, I had to create a new thread and poll for this topic. I gave the credit to bluff and Rardy, as I am just facilitating their wishes in regards to the poll.

So if everyone doesn't mind.....could they go repost and vote in the new thread? Sorry!!!!! :blush:

PS - If anyone wants to learn how to do a poll, PM me and I will send you step by step instructions. Its no problem, or bother, for me to do this. It may be the next day before I respond, but you will get them if you PM me.
