Which large sized U.S. cities (200,000+),have a unique physical and cultural makeup based on a varied mixture of regional influences? Some cities seem to be solidly ingrained in their regional character, (Dallas/Seattle), And some define their regions, and the entire country (LA/NY). State lines and size of the city seem less important than physical locations for a city to be considered multi-regional.
Some examples:
Pittsburgh - Midwest, Atlantic, Appalaichia
Cincinnati - Ozark, Midwest, Appalaichia
Denver - Rocky Mountain, Midwest, Southwest
Buffalo - Midwest, Canada, New England, Atlantic
My list is obviously incomplete, and wholly debatable.
Thanks for playing.

Good list, although I don't think "Ozark" when I'm told about Cincinnati; too far away, in my opinion..

Oklahoma City might qualify, as South/southern Great Plains/Western..
Washington, DC, as Eastern, MidAtlantic, Southern, etc..

disagree. cincinnati has more appalachian influence than any major city north of the mason-dixon. the city borders kentucky. pittsburgh would be a close second, with its proximity to west virginia.

Orlando comes to mind as being the metro on the border of "Florida Culture" and "Southern Culture"
