I don't think a city has to have a bunch of unique characteristics to have a sense of place though. It's just that for some cities, especially Sunbelt cities, it can take some time to get a grasp of the city.

Wow! That website has a LOT of data!

Is there a quick link for the data set you just presented, regarding region-to-metro migration? Or did you create that table yourself? Something like this would have come in very handy for a thread I was active in a couple of weeks ago. I can't seem to find the data set you presented anywhere.

See what I mean.
DFW airport is pretty darn major. There is no minimizing that. Its not as busy as ATL or ORD, but its about the same as LAX. Its the largest hub of the largest airline in the world and the city is the HQ for that airline. Thats not nothing.

It's major for domestic passenger movements, but it's still behind quite a few in international passenger numbers.

Behind what though? Its top 10. Roughly comparable to Washington Dulles despite the fact that Washington DC has a far larger international O&D than Houston, Atlanta, or Dallas. Its lower than Houston and Atlanta but its not all about simple movements. Atlanta has more international movements than Houston despite Houston being a much larger international O&D market. Atlanta and Dallas are similarly sized international O&D markets.

Geez Louise. These cities have been compared to death already with the same arguments over and over again. Thread closed.
