I can agree with you on the northeast being different though. You guys have great transit so it is easier to go to the core cities and back to the burbs, also you got a ton of people who just stay in the city anyways. Where I'm from people go to the city for a ballgame on occasion.

I aspire to be in the thick of the city so I don't care to go back to a quiet home etc, but there are people who view that as the best of both worlds, I view it more of one way vs the other.

It's all relative. I don't see Chicago as an affordable city regionally but I guess when you compare it to New York or San Francisco it is.

The midwest is cheap and always has been. There is no city in the midwest that can pound for pound compare to Chicago. You have to go outside of the region and compare it to other cities that offer the same sorts of things. And for that when you compare it to those cities, it is affordable. I mean realistically, who is going to compare Des Moines and Chicago? Nobody sane is going to say "Well, they are really alike and both offer the same type and amount of things!"

in regards to my previous post, yea it was off actually, but here
Approximately 68% of Manhattan’s workforce lived within the five boroughs of New York
City, and 28% of the workforce lived in other parts of the New York City-Newark-Bridgeport
Combined Metropolitan Area in 2009. http://wagner.nyu.edu/rudincenter/fi...nCommuting.pdf
28% of 1.61 mil=450k people
plus im sure theres a few hundred thousand more who commute to other boroughs for work and entertainment on a regular so its not millions but prolly like a million of people who live outside the city but go there a lot
i kno for a fact that just from NJ 250k commute to work in NY every working day
Curious question for you.
Have you been to Indianapolis?

Indianapolis has more world recognition than most people realize or want to admit.
The Indy 500 can not be underestimated as a premier world class event. Go around the world and say Indianapolis and people will immediately think the 500.
San Antonio doesn't have a major event like that. It has the Alamo but that's not a major sporting event.
