For me: The City of Passaic in New Jersey. Its a smallish but very densely-populated satellite city of NYC that's mostly surrounded by older suburbs.

Even though its mostly a very poor and rundown city with a high immigrant population; it just looks like its filled with so much history and I can see it having so much potential in the distant future. I love the wide and open downtown.

I feel like I've lived there in my past life since my spirit just seems so connected to it. I also love the density of it; it just feels so warm and cozy.

If anybody familiar with NJ saw this post them they'd probably think I was nuts; since its not known to be a nice or alluring area at all in the eyes of most locals (for the most part).

Probably the rest of New York State I've been to a few spots like Albany and Utica but much of the state I never really experienced....As great as NYC is there is alot more to NYS then that.

Iím generally really interested in older rust belt cities, but especially Pittsburgh and Cleveland. Part of it is their history as some of the most prosperous cities in the US and the kind of architecture that went up in their heydays as well as the institutions that were created during those times that are still there today. They both also have that underdog sort of narrative that I seem attracted to no matter what the topic. I also find their proximity to each other but with quickly changing landscapes fascinating and wish there were a decent rail service between the two cities. From what Iíve seen from various sources Iíve come across, this corridor is one of the best suited for the return of decent rail service that does not currently have one save for the late night train that is essentially unusable to most.

Iím also really into Duluth. Itís a much smaller city, but its hilliness and position as a major harbor on the worldís largest freshwater lake is pretty awesome.

Louisiana, Arizona, Mississippi, Charleston, Aspen and Salt Lake City have always intrigued me for some reason.

Come on out to Duluth! It is a wonderful place to visit and live. There is a lot to see and do. Lake Superior is currently frozen, but most months it is free from ice.

^ Duluth and the North Shore of Minnesota is great. BWCA, Iron Range, etc. I grew up mostly in Minnesota so it's not a mystery but still awesome to me.

It’s not in the US, but I’ve always been intrigued by the Maritimes in Canada. I really want to visit at some point. Seems totally different from anywhere else in Canada.
