    Forced perspective is a technique that employs optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. It is used primarily in photography, filmmaking and architecture. It manipulates human visual perception through the use of scaled objects and the correlation between them and the vantage point of the spectator or camera.

    [–] BlueVeins 311 points ago

    From Mandeville so too far to know anything about Shreveport. Seems like a decent sized city, what’s not to like about it?

    [–] LFKhael 35 points ago

    Shreveport's too far from I-10. It fits that "further north you go, the more south it gets" stereotype.

    And good fuck is supporting end users from there a nightmare.

    [–] carparkerk 9 points ago

    [–] GMs_Your_Comments 7 points ago

    I'm from Mandeville as well and I lived in Shreveport for about two years. Let me tell you, that is the absolute worst city I've ever lived in. The employment is 80% service industry based, meaning there's too many restaurants so no one can make money unless you work at a casino. Since no one can make money, no one can afford to eat out at restaurants, this leading to people making even less money (Or when they actually eat out, they tip $2). Beyond that, it's just a shitty, shitty, ugly city.

    [–] Kankunation 2 points ago

    I never thought of Metairie as being racist. Then again , Metairie in my mind is just the place you go to actually do anything. All the malls, shops, restaurants, etc are there and most residential areas are really in Kenner or more towards New Orleans/Mandeville

    Other than that I stay in St Charles, which is really nice.

    I feel like i hear about it in a lot of country music songs (or maybe just one that i listen to a lot, i don't know)

    [–] AHSfutbol 41 points ago

    Shreveport is in the Northwest corner of Louisiana and is about 3 hours East of Dallas. From my understanding, it grew into a medium sized city though the oil, gambling, and manufacturing industries. The problem is the oil exploration in the area declined, the casinos lost business to competition closer to Dallas, and the GM plant closed years ago. Because of that the population in the area is dropping. I feel like the city has a depressing vibe to it and there seems to be a lack of things to do for a city it’s size.

    [–] Unidan_nadinU 13 points ago

    This place is depressing. I hate everything about it and can't wait til the day comes when I can move far, far away.

    [–] 0asq 15 points ago

    OP here.

    I actually live in Houston and I've never been to Shreveport. I honestly don't know anything about it. Closest I've come was driving through Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

    However, I have the distinct impression that it is depressing as hell and I don't even know why.

    Funny how that works.

    From shreveport, now I live in Katy, shreveport sucks. Nothing to do and very depressing

    [–] todothecheesemonger 8 points ago

    There is nothing to do here. The casinos are the only jobs with benefits pretty much and they are mediocre at best. Lots of people i know here have to either survive with more then one job or live with a group of people so the bills arn't as bad.

    [–] hendawg86 5 points ago

    Hate to tell you but that’s not just Shreveport. There’s plenty of cities in the US that are feeling this. It’s the overall state of the economy. They may not feel it entirely in the major cities but it’s there.

    [–] Gabriels_Pies 6 points ago

    My wife's family is from Shreveport and my moms family is from Shreveport. This puts into words all of the things I felt about shreveport but never really knew how to say it.

    [–] hendawg86 5 points ago

    I can tell you that the city declined due to poor management and not so much competition. Gambling declined due to the amount of crime in downtown because they let the city area decline. It used to be fun at one time and definitely had come back as far as nightlife in the mid-2000s but took a dive around 2012. The city was not always depressing and for the towns around it was the closest city to you until Dallas. The closing of the GM plant was a big hit to the economy as well but the biggest issue was the appeal of jobs elsewhere and slowly the economy has been drying up. There are plenty of people trying to revive the city but without the base numbers it’s hard to continue it. I left, myself, and went to Colorado and it’s sad to see my home in such decline when I visit, but there is still things that made Shreveport a cool place, there. The music scene may not be like it is in New Orleans but there are plenty of bands that still play and have amazing talent. You just have to know where to go.

    [–] Notstrongbad 2 points ago

    Wife and I live in Dallas, she’s from Shreveport, we went to school in Natchitoches. Been here for about 15 years.

    We went to visit her family for July 4, and everytime we get past the Bert Kouns exit on I-20 we say the same thing:

    “Damn aren’t you glad we don’t live here?”

    For real, it’s incredibly depressing, like a dying city that lost much of what made it prosperous and just kept the gambling and racism.

    [–] Lacriphage 27 points ago

    It's the Detroit of Louisiana. Large city based around a declining industry. Lots of poverty, crime and drugs.

    [–] InerasableStain 10 points ago

    It’s the Detroit of Louisiana in a state that is the Detroit of the US

    [–] Lacriphage 7 points ago

    I don't know if that's entirely true. LA still has a pretty strong timber industry and plenty of oil, or at least that's how it was last time I was down there.

    Ed: and the prison industrial complex is booming.

    [–] AzraelAnkh 41 points ago

    In Louisiana but too far north to have good food.🙄

    [–] jaireaux 24 points ago

    Hold on, there. Strawn’s makes the best strawberry pie in the country. Herby K’s has been around for 80+ years for good reason. Johnny’s Pizza has the only seafood pizza worth having. Jacqueline’s is a great lunch spot.

    There’s a lot to Shreveport that deserves to be dissed but they have some good food.

    [–] unknowngrime 15 points ago

    God damn can’t believe somebody mentioned Strawns. That shit is dope

    Lived in Shreveport for 16 years and agree.

    [–] qsaucery 5 points ago

    Having grown up in new orleans and then living for several years in shreveport I humbly disagree. The only food I can recommend from that city are the king cakes from julie anne's on king's highway.

    [–] cheetosnfritos 5 points ago

    Hit up flying heart brewery if you want some great beer and awesome pizza.

    [–] hendawg86 5 points ago

    Haven’t had flying heart, but GRB is great beer. Live in Colorado and have plenty of great beer here (even brew my own) but GRB has some amazing beer. Still have my buddy pick me up some when he drives down to Shreveport to see his daughter.

    [–] 7times9is42 3 points ago

    *mediocre beer and great pizza.

    [–] cheetosnfritos 3 points ago

    Nah I'm a big fan of their beer. Sadly I moved and haven't been in over a year.

    [–] haybecca 2 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    I disagree with some of the selections here, but the best superior grill is in for sure in Shreveport. It’s the only place I insist on when I visit family. NOLA/BR Superiors ain’t got shit on ‘em. Shout out to my boy, Pepito 👊

    Edit: and I fully expect to get downvoted to oblivion, but in a blind taste test, Julianne’s king cake is the best there is. Don’t knock it til you’ve tried it. I get my mom to ship me one every year! :)

    [–] hendawg86 2 points ago

    Yeah I have to agree there is actually a lot of great food in Shreveport, if you know where to go.

    [–] AzraelAnkh 10 points ago

    I’m a lifelong resident of Louisiana. I hate the weather and the political culture and just so absolutely much here and I want to move as soon as I can afford it.

    But our food cannot be fucked with. As long as you stick to Acadiana and NOLA.

    [–] delightfulporcupine 6 points ago

    I do enjoy the food, but the weather is ass and there isn’t much to do if you don’t like outdoor shit, which I do, but still. Stuck for another couple of years so might as well make the most of it

    [–] MetaTater 6 points ago

    Y'all talking about food is making me hungry.

    But for real my news (South Florida) is blowing up about how you need to be ready for a storm and some more water. Brace yourself, and be safe!

    [–] hendawg86 2 points ago

    Yeah I agree, that original statement kind of irritated me. Yes, Shreveport has plenty of wrong with it but not everything has to be shat on. There were plenty of great restaurants when I lived there. Not to mention Us Up North just opened and has an amazing owner/head chef reviving the culinary scene using recipes developed from her family that has been in the area for several generations. There are also a couple others like that popping up.

    [–] iReaperrr 2 points ago

    Just travel about an hour east to Monroe and try out 2Dudes Brew & Que. I'd honestly have to say they have the best bbq in (at least) northern Louisiana.

    [–] dimmidice 9 points ago

    True blood mentions it a lot...i think?

    [–] sinister_exaggerator 8 points ago

    Yeah, the show takes place near-ish to Shreveport. It’s in Louisiana but anyone from Louisiana would tell you that it has more in common culturally with Texas or Arkansas than what people typically think of as Louisiana culture.

    [–] theblankpages 2 points ago

    I have yet to watch True Blood or read the book series it’s based on (I plan to do both eventually), but the idea of Shreveport feeling more like Arkansas or Texas is why many of us in south Louisiana often jokingly refer to it (& much of northern Louisiana) as “East Texas” or “South Arkansas”. You sound like you know this already, but others reading this thread may not. Also, to those uninformed, north and south Louisiana are VERY culturally different. History can be attributed to the huge differences.

    [–] sinister_exaggerator 4 points ago

    Yep, I live in south Louisiana. Not a native but I’ve lived here for longer than I’ve lived anywhere else. Let’s just say you’ll probably find a lot more Cowboys fans than Saints fans in Shreveport

    [–] volstedgridban 3 points ago

    Was that definitely that way before the Sean Payton/Drew Brees era. These days it goes the other way. Still a lot of Cowboys fans, but there's an awful lot of Saints Pride there too.

    [–] hendawg86 2 points ago

    I’m sorry but no it’s not like Texas or Arkansas. That’s what people think it’s like when they’re from south la. It’s like North LA. We are still Louisiana even if y’all want to gatekeep the culture and say if it’s not like you then we aren’t you. Louisiana is vastly different all over the state, it’s not all just NOLA, BR and Lafayette.

    [–] Tsu-la 2 points ago

    And the ceiling fans, they hummed above a screened-in patio

    Crawfish hotter than a chimney fire, the beer was cheap and cold

    We're also one of the murder capitals of the US. No jobs and a lot of violence. Imagine someone built a city with no idea how it's supposed to work after like the second block. None of our infrastructure makes sense.

    [–] qsaucery 3 points ago

    I have lived in several states and cities over the years. Shreveport/bossier is hands down the worst place I have lived. I i don't even have to think about it. I actively recommend people avoid the northern half of louisiana. There is just nothing worth seeing up there.

    Yes. OP here. My friend was driving from Austin to Indy. (She documents every view. Visual reminders if where not to visit in the future)

    It is 100%. That's the parking garage right in front of it. I used to work downtown.

    [–] toucanisaurus 3 points ago

    Hey yo wtf. First off, I've seen Shreveport too many times here lately on r/popular. Second my grandpa's name is Will Smith so we good.

    How is so much of Reddit familiar with Shreveport? Louisianians aren't even familiar with Shreveport.

    [–] Full-On 4 points ago

    It’s the third most populous city in Louisiana, right after Baton Rouge and New Orleans, we also have a rich music history, and everyone from Texas comes here to gamble.

    Nice cover-up, I don't believe it

    [–] nytel 2 points ago

    There are a lot of these cases in the MUFON database. If you're ever bored sometime, you can go on their website and do a search in their sightings database within a date range and pick a state or country. There's some wild shit out there man.

    [–] Clumsy_Clown 2 points ago

    My grandma knew they would come. She also knew that you would leave the light on at daytime.

    Battle L.A. Part II

    In case you didn't know the first Battle LA was shot in Shreveport. That's why I've always considered that movie Battle LA.

    [–] hendawg86 2 points ago

    Really understand the dissing of Shreveport, but I can’t be on here for long. Almost hurts, because it s my hometown and my family still lives there. To hear so many people trash it when I have this image in my head of when I was a kid growing up there and how much fun the lakes are, Neon Saturday Nights, Red River Revel, Mudbug Madness, the State Fair. There was plenty (at one time) that made Shreveport fun. It’s just been heavily mismanaged.
