I believe that Los Angeles,Atlanta,NYC and Dallas not including Funky Town are diva cities.

L.A.-is stuck on the fame/hollywood style of life which makes them better

Atlanta- is a city that think that it is becoming king of the south and the country and no other city is better lol!

Houston-is a city with great jobs but still thinks because it is the fourth largest city in the country that it should get some attention in the spotlight!

NYC-is a city that think because it is the largest that it automatically make it better.

My question to C-D is what cities are divas to you?

L.A. is the movie capital of the United States, that's plenty of bragging rights for the city, plus everything else it offers.

Atlanta, while I see what you're saying, does deserve some credit for what's offered there and what they offer to the South.

Houston has shown tremendous growth population wise and job wise, so it definitely should be in the spotlight.

NYC obviously trumps any other city in the country, if not the world and I think that's obvious to anyone.

Even though all of these cities deserve their mark, I would say out of these, Atlanta would be a "diva."

Based on C-D, it'd be Houston, Dallas or Atlanta (with New York, but that kind of goes without saying, and unlike the others it has the right to brag a bit). I don't know which is the most out of those three, but if I had to narrow down the list I'd try to eliminate a Texas city, so I'll exclude Dallas from the list, leavig only Houston vs. Atlanta. I can't pick -- too close to call!

Every city on this list deserves to be stuck on themselves IMO,
LA is an amazing city like no other in the US, where else can you hit the beach, ski, then go chill in the desert in the same city. Nearly perfect weather, palm trees, beautiful mountains in the distance, fun interesting neighborhoods, open minded population, great party scene, they have great, chilled hip hop festivals. Besides the high cost of living and traffic, what's there not to like about that place. And contrary to popular belief, open jobs are definitely there in LA.

Houston has one big thing..that is JOBS!!! It also has a cheap cost of living to go along with that and all of the big city amenities to keep one entertained and happy. Plus it seems so chilled there. But just like I said, they have a right to want attention, they have JOBS JOBS JOBS!!!!

Dallas, I don't know too much about, but like Houston, they have a booming economy and a cheap COL. That alone allows them to be stuck on themselves as well.

Chicago has a major transit system, awesome walkable neighborhoods, a beautiful lake with beaches, and one of the best downtowns in the country. Chicago has got to be one of the cheapest cities with a dense urban environment and a world class mass transit system. Only negative, is that cold...I'd hate to deal with that every winter, but other than, what is there not to like about living in a fairly affordable, world class, urban city.

NYC is NYC..nuff said lol..no other city comes close to it

Atlanta is is the economic engine of the region. Hell, its by far the largest city in a 500 mile radius lol. The closest city that can halfway talk s*** is Charlotte and thats still a 3 1/2 hr to 4 hr drive..Many fortune 500 companies are located here and its a major logistics hub. It has the only heavy rail in the south besides Miami and there are plenty of new things coming to the city. Atlanta also has some of the coolest little neighborhoods in the south and also...as I'm out and about, I see PLENTY of AL, MS, TN, SC and south GA plates..obviously something is attracting them here..so yeah, ATL is king of the south hands down..Miami is too far south and Dallas & Houston are too far west.

Lastly, Miami, no other city has that latin flavor found in Miami. Then you have the ultimate beach there, South Beach which is hands down the best Beach/party district in the country and you STILL have Ft. Lauderdale nearby which puts the icing on the cake. People from all over the world flock there to have a good time and Miami Beach also is IMO one of the best urban areas in the country. Miami Beach, where South Beach of course is one of my fav walkable areas in the US..it has something that none of the others have here...WARM WEATHER ALL YEAR!!!! Everything from your grocery stores, bars, clothing stores, etc are all in walking distance from the residences. You have beautiful women, blue waters, REAL palm trees, plenty of things to do, proximity to the Caribbean, plus several others make Miami a city to have a right to be stuck on itself. Miami is also a MAJOR international finance center.

I agree all of these cities have a right to brag about certain things. And Atlanta is the king of the south. I did however vote for Atlanta simply because when I saw diva and Atlanta together I thought Mariah Carey
