City.

Why would anyone care about the rest of their state?

Considering the cities I've mostly lived in were largely despised by their states... got to go with city pride!

Well, if your state has multiple great cities, than why would you limit your pride to city pride?

because those cities are not yours???

I think pittsburgh is an outstanding city... but i can't take pride in it. It's not my city. How can you take pride in things that are not yours or related to you?

I definitely take pride in my city over my state. My state was founded by the same people who founded my city and it was once great. Now it is an over clogged bureaucratic hell hole. It seems everyone in the state (even including nearby suburbs) have a vendetta against the two cities that make our state worthwhile and do everything they can at every turn to hinder our ability to grow and thrive. Despite the fact that Pittsburgh and Philadelphia produce the vast majority of tax income in this state, every single cent that comes back to either city has to be fought for tooth and nail. What little we do receive is met with outrage by most people in the state and seem to feel as though we should be thanking them for giving our own money back to us.

just thinking about central pa makes me depressed. I could never live there if you paid me any sum of money.

would a wretched backwards place.

so yea in short i def don't have pride in my state whereas i love my city.

people who love their state over their city are people who live in a poor excuse for a city.
