Is there any other city with as many suburbs with names ending in Heights, as in the Cleveland Ohio suburbs. They have Cleveland Heights, University Heights, Shaker Heights, Warrensville Heights, Middleburg Heights, and Broadview Heights. They seem to be the city of the heights, but I know Chicago have a few such as Hardwood Heights, Chicago Heights, and South Chicago Heights. I never heard of Heights until I lived in the Midwest in Chicago and Cleveland for a short period. I believe this is mostly Midwestern, but I do know of City Heights in San Diego from being stationed there on 32nd street.

So, is this more or less a Midwestern thing.

These are in Washington DC and Maryland:

Columbia Heights
Cathedral Heights
Friendship Heights
Potomac Heights
Massachusetts Heights
Wesley Heights
16th Street Heights
Benning Heights
Marshall Heights
Congress Heights
Garfield Heights
Hillcrest Heights
Berwyn Heights
Braddock Heights
Capitol Heights
District Heights
Fairmount Heights
Forest Heights
Marlow Heights
Cedar Heights

Interestingly, there aren't any names like these across the river in Virginia to my knowledge. I guess they don't like heights.

Wow, that's a whole lot of Heights. Looks like the DC metro is the real city of Heights.

There aren't any "Heights" in Milwaukee or Madison that I know of. The highest concentration I've seen are in Cleveland, though I know there are a good number in Chicago and Detroit, and now I know that there are a ton in the DC area.
