Read this from someone in the Pittsburgh Forum. Seems pretty interesting and Some interesting cities made the top 20. Thoughts?

Well, I don't have a creative bone in my body. I can't even properly draw a stickman.

How about a list of metro areas for people like me? LOL

I was a little surprised to see Columbus, OH on the list. Never thought of it being an artsy city.

It looks like they're going by parks and such too, not just "artsiness."

It looked like a list that I think people here might largely like. NYC is number 2, the cities in Florida and Arizona are in the bottom half. Atlanta might be higher than many posters here would like though.

I'm not sure if I put too much stock in it, but I'm not a big city person anyway.

I think Columbus was the big surprise. I think it has some credibility and is certainly interesting, albeit slightly subjective (but not unreasonable).

Columbus has a reputation for being on the cutting edge of business development and implementation of new concepts in the business world. One example:
