Cincinnati - a beautiful lady with a rough, gritty street edge. Usually plainclothes, practical and blue-collar, but beautiful nonetheless, and can really dress up for a night on the town. Is pessimistic about its future and taking challenging projects unlike her sisters Indianapolis, Columbus, and even Louisville. Sadly, she's race- and class-conscious and checks out "outsiders" moving in carefully.

Louisville - a beautiful lady with a rough, gritty street edge, but not as much as her sister, Cincinnati. Usually, plainclothes and practical, but really puts on the ritz with it comes to huge events like the Kentucky Derby. More open-minded and accepting of others based on race and class, but very cautious of outsiders. Has an odd inferiority/superiority complex which is demonstrated by constantly putting down her sisters, Lexington and Cincinnati.

Lexington - the prettiest lady of the three but with a thicker Southern accent. Fancies herself as being elegant and exclusive (heck, she even has the "Lexington Legends" baseball team), but in actuality she really is not afraid to wear overalls and boots with mud and bust out to Ke$ha in a bar on Saturday night. Very intelligent but more interested in the game of basketball. Has a very high opinion of herself and knows she is very beautiful, knowing that while she has a lot to offer, her bigger sisters, Louisville, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, and Nashville, have more to offer in terms of entertainment and cuisine.

NYC- High, noisy, dirty and smelly.

Los Angeles: Hmmmm, what's the people equivalent of too much traffic?

Washington DC: Crazy, smelly (to paraphrase Robert Duvall in Apocalypse Now "I love the smell of urine in the morning.").

Thanks for the compliment!

I've lived in Kentucky my entire life and know a lot about the state. I've lived all over it but now am across the river from Cincinnati in N. Ky. for employment purposes. This area is okay, but I'm not digging it nearly as much as I thought I would.

I attended college in Louisville. Hated the city. Maybe if I took a job there my perspective would change b/c it would obviously be in a different context, but many of the people I have met and meet from there frankly irritate me.

I was raised near Lexington, as well as down in West KY. With Lexington, I've had some great times partying there, but I find the overall feeling of the city to be dull and sterile. When you're between the ages of 25 and 55, I don't see that the city really has that much to offer.

Lastly, the weather here sucks from late October through late March and sometimes even well into April. And where there's no vegetation on the hillsides and trees, it looks so barren and depressing.

Kentucky is a beautiful state with overall friendly people (except for N. Ky., Lou. and Lex.) and most of my family is here. However, I've interviewed for jobs over the last 1 1/2 years in four western states, some of which were really decent jobs. No offers, but I've not given up.

Brilliant!

Houston - Tara, as in The United States of Tara. They are all here.

Pittsburgh - Pale, darkhaired lady with glasses. Smokes cigs. Conventional. Blue collar. Honest in a mellow way. Rough/raw/real. Scrappy in an endearing oldsoul way. Turns into another person after drinking (hehe). And of course, obsessed with the Steelers even though she forgets things about them easily.
Pittsburgh is the older lady who in the 80s was just down right nasty looking, but in the early 2000s went through some major plastic surgery, and it all turned out great. It's not terrible looking and fake.

I heard this awhile ago. I'm paraphrasing but it went something like this:

In the northeast, you have the big, bold, arrogant older brother (NYC) that always gets its way.

Then you have the prima donna youngest child that always cries for attention and tells you how important it is but screams that it never gets enough attention (Boston).

Finally, you have Philadelphia, the middle child (not geographically, of course) who is mentally unstable but will always throw a punch in your defense.

Denver/Boulder....With a dispensory on about every corner, even in upscale fashionable hoods..A familiar face emerges.



If Cities Were People, How would you describe them?-hee.jpg
