It makes no sense because you think "that environment" is based on nothing more than city proper population. Atlanta has a lot more of "that environment" than San Antonio despite having a smaller city population because it's a larger overall region. It's about your logic not your personal preference.

You said maybe you'd live in Atlanta, DC, or Miami but you'd never live in a city proper of 1M+ people because it's too many people for you. It just doesn't make sense to not include the population of the larger region and only focus on the city proper, but hey, do you.

You just said you won't live in any of those places and earlier you said maybe you would LOL. And you've been responding to my posts throughout this entire exchange; don't act like I've been talking to myself.

LoL, i felt that leaving t at Opinions /Viewpoints was an open & shut case on my end. You kept replying back so i felt to give a finished response, and again, and again. Not everybody go by metro population when picking a place to live. They acknowledge it of course but the core city is what matters the most since it's the anchor period. I'm not moving there but If ( IF,IF,IF) i was then it's in the proper not burbs hence more focus on proper. Blacks migrating back then wasn't focusing on metro metrics.
LoL

I doubt they were focusing on ANY metrics. They were looking at things like cost of living, the job market, quality of life, political climate, etc. I wasn't the one who even brought up statistics like city proper or metro area populations because I don't think they really matter as much as you seem to think; I'm not making any type of argument related to population statistics of any kind. This is why I said the people in that video from Boston who limited themselves to just Atlanta as a possible relocation destination in the Southeast were doing so on the basis of it being in the same general weight class as Boston compared to other places in the region. They probably know that Atlanta will come closest to having the offerings and amenities of Boston just based on general knowledge (pro sports, corporate headquarters, mass transit, the airport, colleges and universities, etc.). They wouldn't all of a sudden think a city like Memphis would work for them just because of its city proper population. You're the one making a big deal about statistics, not me.

Iíd say northern cities like BMORE PHILLY NYC BOS no one talks about metro areas. People talk very clearly about city and suburbs or city and surrounding cities. Most of the country cares much more about metro area and includes it in talking about their city because their suburbs are built more similarly to the city than say Philly BMORE or Boston. NYC will say tristate but that just for promotion of products or parties. people donít think or claim Jersey City is NYC seven though it feels like it. People know and respect the border, the history and the differences. Same with Cambridge and Boston. Itís unreasonable to apply the standards of southern and western cities on established legacy cities that simply DONT operate that way. Itís not the Bay, itís not Atlanta Or Chicago or whatever not every metro and its residents act or honk the same and that ought to be respected not washed over for simplicityís sake.
