Here's my opinion. Chicago people, back off. I'm not saying that ajf didn't deserve some of it or even start it but don't take it too far. He has strong opinions about certain subjects and voices them strongly. Right or wrong, properly or not properly. Stooping to petty insults directed to him, St. Louis or any other city doesn't make you look good either.

I am coming into this thread pretty late, but Puget Sound is not even close to a river. It is a gigantic bay that is directly connected to the Pacific. More spefically, it is considered a series of fjords, carved by glaciers. Seattle is considered a coastal city, there aren't any major rivers within a hundred miles.

Then what is Philly to Chicago? Philly must be Chicago's "b*tch, hoe, red-headed stepchild" then.

You have a very broad definition of what a river city is to include all these cities. When I think River City I think of a city that is inland (not on or very close to a coast or on a huge lake) and on a major river. The only one of your cities that I would include are: St Louis, Minneapolis, Cinncinatti, Louisville, Memphis, New Orleans, Kansas City, Pittsburg to me these are America's major river cities.

Why KC and not Omaha? Both are on the "Mighty Mo".

Cincinnati and Pittsburgh:

Both have bustling riverfronts, lots going on in the downtowns of both cities. Pittsburgh with its many parks and bridges. Cincinnati with its parks, sports venues, and museums. Cincinnati is also developing the Banks Project too. Cincinnati and Pittsburgh really are on the move.

St. Louis needs more work on their riverfront I think.

What does that make Philly? N.Y.'s foot stool? After all we're talking about a city with a statue of Rocky at their art museum. How classy, how cultured, how sophisticated, How pathetic!

afj are you a member of urbanstl? after reading some posts there, i doubt they would accept you into their community with your thoughts and strange bizzarro ways, as they seem to all be extreme urban enthusiasts...

WHAT! I can never return to St. Louis. Whatever will I do? PLEASE! LOL!
