That's why Kingsport is known as "Stinksport".

Ya that would be nice! I'm happy about all these businesses coming in and how good the city keeps it! I wish that they would have put the downtown closer to Exit 1 on 26 it would be easier to get to for other people who don't live in Kingsport.

No wonder many of the few decent residents of KPort travel over to JCity during the week/weekends for dining out, shopping, entertainemt, etc.

JCity always the Bride; KPort always the Bridesmaid.
That's just the way it is, always will be.

it's a tough road for this " manufacturing" town to find it's niche and so it is with downtown.

Selectively better than JC's yet so far behind Bristol.

Hope they slow their expansion outwards and concentrate on improving / updating the inner.

Decades of neglect wont be cured without decades of effort.

Happy to report these facts again:

Most of the decent residents of KPort travel over to JCity during the week/weekends for dining out, shopping, entertainemt, etc.

JCity always the Bride; KPort always the Bridesmaid.
That's just the way it is, always will be.

Kport never could catch up to JCity. That's the bottom line.

Not really. You can't compare apples to oranges. The two cities are just completely different atmospheres. Johnson City is a college town and Kingsport is an industrial town. The people who want to go out party a little go to Johnson City. It's like that old saying....Johnson City is a nice place to visit but I wouldn't want to live there.
