Default Larger cities vs. Medium and Small Cities

I hear some people say things like Providence has everything Boston has or OKC has everything Dallas has or Charlotte has all that Atlanta has, just on a smaller scale. Do you agree with this. What do the largest cities have that their smaller cousins cannot duplicate. Or do the Larger cities just have more of the same and that is all?

I think it's just more of the same. Some things might have a different take or style in the bigger city and done in a higher volume, but it might not be something that the smaller cities do not have. For instance, here are some things the city I live in has.....

I don't know if it is spamming as much as it is putting the city out there. I don't get anything for it, but I was just showing what a smaller city has to offer.

It doesn't bother me. It's not like he does it every single post. Other posters annoy me a lot more

Every single thread that has nothing to do with Syracuse somehow gets 20,000 of his Syracuse links. Food, music, sports, whatever. We get it, you like it there...

Larger cities definitely offer more options in entertainment, shopping, dining, recreation, etc. They also get sought-after retail and restaurant locations that medium and smaller cities don't have and that they may never have...I'm in no way saying that this makes a large city better, but is an example of options that aren't always found in smaller cities. In the last 5 years, several retail and restaurant locations have opened in Atlanta that weren't previously absent:

Trader Joe's
IKEA
Legal Seafood
Nordstrom
Fox Sports Grill
Room and Board
Zara
H&M
The North Face
BLT Steak

Whatever man. We all know Syracuse is the best fit for everyone looking for a place to live and that it has a fantastic underground rap scene. Right...
