Austin is the number one place for folks aged 25-35 to move–and over the last five years, we’ve seen the effects of that growth manifest in horrible traffic and higher rents. This has caused a very real anti-newbies attitude.
Today the Don’t Move Here meme just got some new ammo. Kami Russell, an enterprising etsy-naut designed this infographic poster explaining why Austin sucks. While a lot of it is poking fun at our sporty, outdoorsy, dog rescuing attitudes, some of it is pretty serious. Traffic is getting worse. Public Transportation REALLY sucks–and there doesn’t seem to be a quick solution in sight.
What do you think? Did she nail it? What else would you add?
Head over to Kami’s Etsy store to buy the poster.
