Austin is 272 square miles. Atlanta is 131 square miles. Not the same size.

Yeah, the air-conditioned tunnels that connect blocks and blocks of downtown Houston because it's so hot during the summer. LOL.

Do what? Austin and Atlanta being compared as the same in size is ridiculous. Sorry Spade didn't see your post.

Austin's city limits are almost twice the size of Atlanta so the population distribution between the two are pretty close. Once you get out of the city limits Atlanta obviously has a much larger metro population. Which is why I said you cannot judge places on how many people are inside the (invisible) city limits lines.

I thought this forum was closed long time ago since no one but ATL people really care about this and it is just a place they can go to try to boost their ego. Like I said before no one outside of Ga. SC,Ala gives a hoot about ATL. ATL is the capital of that region and that's about it.

Very true. Miami, Dallas and Houston are in the Southern half of the U.S. but they aren't the true definition of a southern city. Atlanta is the only one of the four that fits that bill.

Silliness. Atlanta has a sphere of influence that covers those states as well as parts of NC, TN, and FL. That is a huge geographic footprint that covers the core of the Southeast--hence why it's winning this poll.

Houston too, and before you mention the Mexicans, they sre integral to the US and are all over the south now. They are part of the "New South."
