The highest natural elevation in the borough of Brooklyn is precisely 216.5 feet above sea level. That's about as flat a topography as you'll find anywhere.

Default flat

Denver claims the title as flattest city in america(queen of the plains). I think champaign IL is the flattest. Indy is not the flattest, maybee the fattest.jk Also, i'M pretty sure cinci & louisville are hillier than KC.

Some of the hilliest are:
Pittsburgh, PA
Cincinnati, OH
San Francisco, CA
Philadelphia, PA (not the city itself really, but right outside it is very hilly).
It gets hilly north of Houston.....
