Katiana, i'm not saying at all omaha is a bad place, but in reference to a lot of other cities mentioned, that is relatively small.

Nashville is on the Cumberland River. But I wouldn't include it in the list of the country's great river cities, either. Again, just because there happens to be a river running through a city doesn't make it a river city in the classic sense. That's why I wouldn't consider Omaha to be a river city, either, nor Knoxville even though the Tennessee River starts right here. I mean geez, most cities in the country are on a river of some sort, and for most it was merely for convenience. Only a select few seem to embrace their river heritage. And no, building a park on the riverbanks doesn't magically transform a city into a "river city," either.

So some of you people can throw a temper tantrum all you want, but that doesn't make your cities into river cities in the classic sense. Otherwise, by merely having a few parks along your city's river and even some trendy condos, just about every city in America that's located on a river can be labelled a "river city."

I know; someone asked for its size. I think it is slightly smaller than Kansas City, also on the MO.

Fine i'll list more things we are doing with our river or have already done

1) We are building our baseball stadium, which will host the CWS, by the river

2) our botanical gardens are on the river

3) to me buildings have faces I know that sounds weird but most of our buildings "faces" are towards the river

4) our convention center is by the river

5) Gallup's headquarters is on the river

6) We are building a landmark pedestrian bridge on the missouri river



Picture found on: http://www.offenburger.com/images/Om...dPedBridge.jpg

7) We are still constantly developing our riverfront

OMaha seems to be a nice little city for its size.

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...
Oh wow...i make St. Louis look so bad by saying its Midwestern... I guess you must be ashamed of being from Chicago for that very reason. I have acknowledged that St. Louis has a few Southern characteristics, but it is still an overall Midwestern city. How that makes the city look bad I have no friggin' clue. Excuse me for making a fool out of myself by telling the truth. And yes I am a member of urbanstl for your information, was invited by several people to join and I'm perfectly well accepted there. Nice try though. Maybe you oughta stick to representing your own city instead of trying to speak for others I'd say that you are a bad rep. for the Midwest in general because you can't stand the idea of St. Louis being a Midwestern city...well it is...its demographics, most of its history, culture, dialect, trees, industry, architecture, and weather pretty much give all the evidence necessary, so get over it, grow up, take a shower, shine your shoes, and go back to your little cubicle and do your paperwork like a good second-fiddle employee
