That doesn't mean they aren't real cities, though. Los Angeles maybe suburban in nature. But it is not a big burb.

True but when the way cities are portrayed in the media...(tv magazines...comic books/batman..superman spiderman etc) isn't what you see in those other places..LA is a city no doubt but not the type that fits descript....seems like a resort

lol I know, but I've heard people say their city has a subway when it's all above ground. Just wanted to clarify what I meant for those from a non-real city who don't have subways

Wow, Rome barely qualifies as a real city with its measly 2 subway lines!

Cities with subways in the U.S.:

Boston
New York
Newark
Buffalo
Cleveland
Chicago
Philadelphia
Pittsburgh
Baltimore
Washington
St. Louis
Atlanta
Dallas (a small portion of DART)
Minneapolis (a small portion of Metro)
Seattle (Downtown portion of Central Link)
Portland (a small portion of MAX)
San Francisco
Oakland
Los Angeles

In my opinon, there are more "real" cities in the country than this list would indicate.

It only has 2? wow, I thought more. Well, it still has a subway, so it's a "real" city When I was in Athens, I think there were about 4-5 subway lines.

Yep only two. Surprising, I know. I thought all major European cities pretty much blew the U.S. away when it came to subway coverage. Rome seems to be the major exception.
