Pittsburgh Pros and Cons
Affordable, but nice housing
Low crime rate
Good Colleges like CMU
People are generally friendly
No real natural disasters
Accent is terrible (only some have it though)
Steelers' (American football) fans are annoying
Rarely Sunny with hard to predict weather
I don't think so.
The city proper has less than 500k population, but the urban area in/around the city has almost 5 million
A useful guideline is that if a city has at least 2 professional sports teams in major American leagues, it isn't midsized.

Atlanta has such a problem with urban sprawl that the actual city is "mid-sized" with 450,000.
Over 5,000,000 actually live and work in the metropolitan area which is still counted as Atlanta
the whole eastern part of michigan was built around one thing, the auto industry. when that went away they turned into shit for obvious reasons.
i'm sure they have clean water though.
I don't live in Atlanta, but I'd much rather have that sprawl versus 1 million people all sandwiched on top of each other in rickety apartment "buildings," like they have in those other cities.

I don't even give a fuck about politics m8, I just go there to have a good time. I've only been a couple times but the variety of restaurants and shops you can go to is top-notch, and you don't need to drive anywhere outside the downtown core.
I would hope the rest of the state hates them, Wisconsin without Madison is basically Iowa with a smelly nigger ghetto tacked on one end.
One of the few Southern cities with any culture left
Ask yourself whether Madison would survive without the university. If the answer is no, you're clinically retarded. If the answer is yes, then you understand why it's incorrect to call it "a glorified college town."
It's like Knoxville but bigger, more crowded, shittier, more dangerous, uglier, and niggerier.
I like Memphis more. It's fun to tell people that Elvis is entombed in the pyramid.
>if you have to
>you'll grow to hate it
but there are other aspects of Atlanta that make me like living here, it's the center of the Southeast and each """District""" of the city has its own aspect. And unlike much of the south, people who grow up in the city and in most of the metropolitan area have a neutral accent unlike our hick neighbors.
For others who don't like commuting 60 min. to work everyday; Please Please Please find a house closer to work.
We have motherfuckers that buy houses 40 50 and 60 miles from the city just for the low prices and those people commute there everyday.
it's a question that gets asked by everyone who visits. "What's in the pyramid?" The real answer is boring; it's a sporting goods store. People know Elvis is from here and is buried here so it makes such an absurd idea seem plausible for a moment.
Albuquerque is actually pretty nice and not filled with meth heads
>implying the pollution is that bad
Unless you live in the fucking refinery you'll be breathing fine.
I looked for accuracy and neatness basically. There are lots of damaged roads, trash on the streets in some areas, somewhere builndings look abandoned(parhaps it is) and so forth. Downtown areas are basically good though.
I'm biased because I grew up there, but Omaha is a great place. It usually makes the top ten of most "Best cities to X" lists.
The one downside is the weather. Summers are long and hot and winter are long and cold, with about two weeks of spring and fall in between. But that's typical for most cities in the north-Midwest.
I lived in those Suburb Cities when I was in grade school and I can tell you that while the suburbs were great wooded natural sprawls I can assure you that any of those smaller muncipalities that are called cities are absolute hellhouses. I lived in the lower eastern half of Westchester and I can tell you only Pelham and Mameroneck were good places.
No, I'm not. The island of Manhattan has more people than all of Boston proper alone.
That'd be like calling San Francisco a small city because it's under a million when it has hundreds of thousands of commuters and millions in the outlying areas.
I said "Boston proper" and you carry on this conversation as if I meant "Greater Boston".
This is so classic Boston.
small = under 200,000
medium = 200-500,000
large = over 500,000
There are only 10 cities in the US that have 1 million people living inside their limits, and most of them are absolutely shit-tier.
I'm not the guy you were conversing with, but calling Boston a small city is idiotic. The city's boundaries were drawn in colonial times, of fucking course the population has grown outside its legal limits by now. NYC just kept redrawing its borders to include the new boroughs inside of its legal jurisdiction.
Tacoma is pretty cool.
Just avoid Hilltop or the southern part. Those places are toxic.
Stadium district and Dashpoint are max comfy.
Posting more Tacoma I guess because it gets no love.
As a northerner, I found Charlotte weird. There's lots of cool new skyscrapers downtown, but walk ten minutes and it feels like suburbia.
That being said, the neo-art deco architecture is GOAT.
Kek, Wisconsin Navybro from Madison here. What were you doing in Sheboygan, moose?
I would thoroughly recommend Madison though if you're not a pussy about winter. Comfy, low unemployment, college qts everywhere. Really good restaurant scene.
Seriously just go to Madison. Man, I miss it.
>Wanna play flip cup with us, Anon?
W-where can I find my cute, "adorkable" gamer girl who is also completely a virgin and never even kissed a guy before me. Why are girls all such sluts and bitches?? REEEEEE
>trips over cape
Literally you bro.
If you say so bro
it sounds like you are just making big assumptions and filling in blank lines that weren't even there bro
I don't think it's unreasonable of me to not be interested in sorority sluts that receieve much more dick on average than other women bro
but more than all, I would rather prefer that girl who isn't sorority girl #53432134 bro
I don't even have to click those links to know what they are.
Rochester, New York
you totally maybe won't get shot
In all honesty I've always really wanted to go to Cleveland. The airport looks hella comfy
this desu. did an internship here. would return.
>Americans only consider the population of the city proper when talking about size
Full fucking retard
Portland Oregon undoubtedly, because it's walkable.
LITERALLY every other mid-size American city is a dismal wasteland filled with parking lots and ugly, soulless copy-and-paste suburbs that are at least a 20 minute drive from downtown. And don't expect to be able to walk anywhere unless oyu have 5 hours to make a grocery run. Most neighborhoods adjacent to the city center are blighted. American cities generally are atrocities and a disgrace to civilization
pic related, absolutely disgusting and shameful
Are you fucking serious? Nashville's the jewel of the south, it's a boom town right now. Knoxville is literally one of the shittiest cities in the country
Boston is not a mid-sized city
NYC, LA, and Chicago are metropolises and are in their own category. (Chicago is barely there, though.)
The other major, big American cities are Philadelphia, Boston, San Francisco, and Washington, DC. That's pretty much it. All of these cities have >4 million people living in their metro area, and are historically, culturally, and economically very important on a national scale.
Oklahoma City :DDD
Cities need that one building that sticks out. Otherwise downtown looks like a flat wall.
