I live in Miami (is that big enough?), we have a population of 408,750, we are the 42nd largest city in the US, and we probably have more Cubans than Cuba does.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I know, for a fact, was voted "#1 Most Livable City" in 2011. Not sure about any other years, though. To be quite honest, I hate it here, compared to many other places. :blink:

I live in Westfield, Massachusetts. Think of Massachusetts for a second. You probably thought of the Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics, Patriots (sports in general, I guess), big cities, and basically a pretty nice place.

 

Westfield is not that. What you thought of was eastern Mass, where people think western Mass is filled with farmers and hicks, when it's actually just people who aren't godly at sports and who don't live in massive cities. Westfield is technically a city, but it's really a suburb of Springfield, which was in the Top 20 Most Dangerous Cities in the US several years ago. Oh, the other things we're known for are making whips and Columbia bikes. Yes, whips. We don't make them anymore, but it was a pretty big deal a couple hundred years ago.

 

Moose doesn't even post anymore, so let me (or, rather, Cleveland resident Mike Polk) tell you about Cleveland:

New York City. A metropolis of over 8 million people. The weather is generally awful, but everything else is great. I'd rather live in California or Florida, but it's still a million times better than living in some small town.

You don't want to live in Florida. The weather is only good on the beach, and that's it. It's either oppressively hot, raining a ton, or raining while it's oppressively hot.

 

I don't know how it works either.

 

If you want to live in South Florida, you'll pretty much have to learn Spanish as a second language.

In North Florida, it's pretty much an extension of Georgia. Which is Florida without Cubans and rain.

 

But if you can afford to live on the beach, then hey! Welcome!

It's a bit strange, but I like hot weather. I don't sweat at all, and it feels comfortable to me. I just don't want to be cold.

Manhattan was incorporated in 1886. It is an old and established community. Due to railroad construction in the mid-19th century, many immigrants, especially Irish, moved to the area. It was eventually incorporated to obtain a saloon license. Having its roots in farming, the village has grown over the last ten years to accommodate over 6,071 people. Its forebears of German and Irish heritage give expression in the early spring festival Irish Fest.

Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina.

 

-It's an autonomous province, even if it's only 203 square kilometres large.

-Often called the "Paris" of South America, dut to its europeanized culture, which reflects not only among its architecture, but its people and traditions as well.

-Known as the "Capital mundial del tango/World capital of tango"

-It's a breathtaking city seen from the bigger picture, although there're some mayor issues around. (Many illegal settlements called "villas" been growing lately. Plus, people around here doesn't really care if they litter the streets.)

-Crime grows day-a-day. I've suffered 3 theft attempts in 8 months.

-Our pizza=Best pizza.

-Our subways may give the idea of being designed by a newborn, but they do the trick.

-And last, but not least: Countless amounts of brainwashed political good-for-nothing militants. Not only between the regular citizens, they actually achieved strong economic and political positions.

Louis XIV lived in the Château de Vincennes when he was a child.

Although they're called "Zoo de Paris" and "Parc Floral de Paris", both of them are in Vincennes, not Paris.

My city literally must be the most boring city on the face of the planet. A population of damn near 100,000 and yet everything here is centered towards old people.
