Capitalize Center City?
Shouldn't Center City be capitalized in the title? It's a unique entity (there's only one Charlotte Center City), not a class or group of entities that are common around the country.
I'm not the best writer but I have set some ideas in place for expansion of the article so it can be on par with similar articles about the CBDs of other major cities. Please edit my entries and add some more information so we can make this a much better article. --Moonshield 18:42, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
I grew up in Charlotte, as did my parents (now in their 80s). In all that time, I never heard anyone refer to "uptown" -- it was always "downtown." When I was growing up, the only place to shop was "downtown," so this was an everyday word in our world. Perhaps it depended on where you lived in Charlotte. Our families lived and grew up on the west side of Charlotte, in areas now considered close to the city. Perhaps those people who said they called it "uptown" lived on the other side of town. So apparently, both terms are historically correct!--Lindaclloyd 14:56, 8 June 2007 (UTC)
I have lived here all of my life and have only heard uptown... My dad works there and he calls it uptown as well.--berekniv 10:19, 30 May 2008
Out-of-towners typically call CC "downtown", but Uptown is ending up more recently referring to the Center City area (with the skyscrapers, etc) and outside the 277 loop as "downtown" which covers South End, but it does seem that in general, nobody really knows but at least nobody gets offended. We all kind of know what people mean using either term. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 17:21, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
This whole section is a mess. It presents opposing viewpoints as facts. Not as possible explanations with differing supporters, but as incontrovertible facts. This would be akin to saying "the sky is blue" in one sentence and "the sky is not blue" in the next. Someone with more access to sources really needs to rewrite the thing. For what it's worth (ie nothing), growing up in Charlotte in the late '70s and early '80s it was always "uptown". Other cities had downtowns, Charlotte had uptown. --Khajidha (talk) 19:48, 3 May 2011 (UTC)
Usually Wikipedia places the area or size of the place it has a article on. How big is uptown Charlotte in acres? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 23:10, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
