The only two cities on this list that make sense or Fort Worth and Oklahoma city.

Is Oklahoma City really trying too hard?

My choice would have to be Omaha.

Just because with the pedestrian bridge, don't get me wrong, it looks great, but it is a pedestrian bridge that looks too big for Omaha, something I would expect to see in New York or something world-class. Besides that, Omaha has my favorite Plains State skyline.

i think thats a great way for a city to become more pedestrian friendly. alot of other cities should start building some of their own and be creative with it.

Agreed! Omaha has got something good going on. I think the bridge isn't bad.

Is this the same kind of pedestrian bridge that you see in downtown Minneapolis? If so it is pedestrian friendly in that it can help people avoid inclement weather while moving from street to street. But the downside to this is that it takes people off the sidewalks. At one time Hartford had a couple of these "skywalks" as they were called but they eventually removed most or all of these from over the streets. The primary reason I seem to recall is that it meant less pedestrians on the sidewalks. People just have to tough out the weather I guess. :-)

And my vote for the city that tries to hard is still Kansas City. Just this morning on a public affairs segment shown on a local TV station, some clown from City Hall yet again claimed Kansas City to be a world class city. Hell, St. Louis isn't a world class city and it is a notch above KC. How on earth can anyone in his or her right mind truly believe KC is a world class city? Talk about being on la la land.

Well, you have the Chiefs, the Royals, the Big XII Championships, and a TV show was "filmed" there. People know K.C.
And I know sports teams aren't everything, and Malcom and Eddie wasn't exactly a 5 star show, but unlike Fort Worth, at least Kansas City is known for something other than "that city next to the other, more popular city".
But hey, I don't know about K.C. just as much as I don't know that much about OKC. So I don't know if the city is really trying to hard.
