And it's not a bad thing to raise a child in a university atmosphere, either: there are bound to be some good school systems with education/culture oriented people.
This, along with other college towns/areas, as they also tend to have a market/interest for live music.

Louisville is a major omission, and more affordable than every city on the list. It also is a compromise between a small college town and a large city, is easily navigable, and is arguably one of the most family friendly (Midwest/Southern values) I would also throw Nashville in on this, and Richmond.

Chicago certainly comes to mind, as other posters have mentioned -- although the public schools there can be problematic. But close in suburbs like Evanston or Oak Park, which have decent schools, are racially diverse, and have some urban flavor, might fit the bill too.

You might avoid NYC proper, but some of its close-in suburbs like West Orange, Maplewood, or Montclair NJ, could also easily fit the bill.

As for college towns -- many good one listed here -- the first to spring to mind for me was Cambridge MA.
