Of all the towns and cities you can think of, which city most lacks anything special about it, and is average for America as a whole? Think bland places.

As a large city - New York City

Diverse, rich, poor, middle class, hundreds of different languages, landmarks, etc.

As a medium sized city - Nashville?

As a small city - Providence?

If you're going suburbs, North, South, East or West they're generally alike. Some big box stores, chain restaurants, fast food and a movie theatre.

I don't necessarily agree, but I have heard from many people on CD and elsewhere that DFW seems like "Big City, Anywhere USA"

Yeah I can see that. There's nothing in the (unbuilt) environment to really distinguish it.

Take Fort Worth outta the picture and the Metroplex is definitely about as generic as it gets.
