I said Atlanta, Charlotte, Greensboro, Raleigh are extremely hilly. You bold Charlotte and extremely hilly, where is the exaggeration? Charlotte metro area is very hilly. The Piedmont cities among the hilliest cities in the country.

Boston would have won this, but we decided to create Back Bay and East Boston.

I doubt it...I mean, San Fran, Seattle, LA, Pittsburgh..etc seem pretty hard to beat.

Boston has about 15 sq. Miles of fill including almost all of East Boston, Back Bay, 1/2 of South Boston, parts of Lower Roxbury, most of the South end.

this was all cut from hills like Beacon hill, Cobbs hill, Eagle hill, and some hills were completly flattened.

Seattle had a major regrading happen too, and it's still pretty hilly!

He's not exaggerating. The Piedmont cities are relatively hilly. There are steep climbs in much of the Atlanta area, in terms of developed areas, compared to most major metros of the U.S.

Cincinnati is very hilly. I didn't think Charlotte or Raleigh were very hilly at all. Also people are forgetting Chattanooga. It is very hilly to small mountains.

I was just in Atlanta and drove around it extensively...it is not at all flat...it is very hilly. Not a single flat part of the city that I could find, and many of the hills were steeply sloped.

I think it's wrong to call Cleveland one of the hilliest cities in the U.S....in the Midwest, however, it's definitely one of the hilliest behind Cincinnati, Omaha, Kansas City, St. Louis. There are not many flat parts of Cleveland..it's mostly gently to moderately rolling hills...around areas like Chagrin Falls, however, it is VERY hilly. It's primarily East Cleveland that is hilly. As you drive west on I-480 towards the airport it becomes flat as a pancake.
