Um, have you ever seen NYC vs LA threads on here? How about LA metro vs NYC metro? They're nasty. Don't flatter YOURSELF.

San Francisco, they dont like us because they think we are all plastic, materialistic, all we care is what kind of cars you drive, the area you live in, what gym do you work out at, etc. And guess what ? They are absolutely right !
Of course we always win, just because we have way better weather than they do.

Or so they like to think.
Neither Houston or NOLA are really rivals of Atlanta. They are just compared a lot.

Atlanta could care less about this so-called rivalry. I'm sure New Orleans and Houston feel the same.

In a traditional perspective New York City and Philadelphia is one of the oldest rivalries between cities in this country. It goes all the way back to the 1700's. Of course NYC today is more prominent and has a much larger economy and population but for everything else it's pretty much a rivalry between the two cities. The top aspects that come to mind are authentic culture, sports, and cuisine. Also another rivalry aspect that is important is innovation. Both cities through out their history were trend setters and were definitely not cities trying to follow or catch up to anyone. Philly is known for having the country's first hospital, library, zoo, and the computer for example. Not to mention they are only 90 miles apart from each other.

The funny thing is that Houston and New Orleans can themselves be considered rivals of each other in certain respects.

I was at an organ concert in Disney Hall there in 2007 & the organist, a guest visiting from The Juilliard School in Manhattan, proclaimed the Disney Hall organ to be "...the king of instruments! They don't have anything like this in New York", he said.
The audience erupted with wild applause & rapturous acclaim. As a visitor to L.A. myself, I'd never seen anything like that before.
Too bad LA sucks lol. It's not even a city, it's suburbia. NYC- no place like it except maybe Dubai honestly.
