East side out here is Riverside and the Inland Empire of meth and crack. So definitely the West.

Unless you want affordable crack....

Both are good and safe in Nashville, but the south side is definitely more affluent

Assuming you mean better as in nicer than probably the Eastside

West is better, as a general rule, and it applies to our cities here as well. West is on the Sound, East isn't.

The east side used to be nice but it is being overtaken by the ghetto from the south side

Given the choices the east is better. But the north side is better.

Why would you say East-West not West-East

Avoid the east/northeast parts of Denver.

Interesting, I've heard that before, but that's not very accurate. North Aurora is mostly Latinos, Russians, and Koreans. Very few middle easterners

Must be central Aurora. I lived there for awhile. Plenty of Muslims. Nothing against them. Very nice people.

I agree, they're very nice. What I meant for this poll was east of downtown denver before you get to aurora. Five points, Capitol Hill, lowry. That whole area

I lived in Capital Hill near Cheesman. Loved it.

East and West Atlanta are pretty much similar in this aspect, although I do think the schools and other features are a little bit better on the east side.

The west side of Portland is better than the East side, by far.

East but it's hard to say. The east is the non downtown part, but it's also merged into a very very affluent "city". They're tri cities. So my answer may be biased.

Tough. Austin vs. New Orleans. I stuck with Texas.

Other than the traffic congestion, Austin is great. Have you been? For history, I would choose New Orleans.

NYC toss up. The West is Mahattan, the East is Brooklyn, Queens and SI on the ocean side.

Yeah. "East" and "West" aren't really how NYC gets broken down. Typically, the only usage of those words is to differentiate the two sides of upper Manhattan or of the Village. Nobody refers to Queens and Brooklyn as "East New York."

East side beach front million dollar homes. West side ghetto.

There's not really an east side to Philly, but to the east is Camden NJ which is one of the worst places in the country.

Closer to the mountains is typically better. So I'd say east side.

Well, the east side of Chicago is Lake Michigan...So I voted east.
