That said, yes I know Florence, Kentucky's water tower says "Florence, Y'all". :-)
You all is common for "border states" it's also the norm in Maryland and Missouri.

A lot of people do not know this but when the tower was first built it said Florence Mall later it was decided that a public structure could not be used to advertise a private business and the cheapest solution was to change the M to a Y.

This is true, I remember an article put out by the Cincinnati Enquirer explaining the story of the famous water tower. I also remember reading that the city was going to change it back to state "Florence Mall" but that the citizens loved "Florence Y'all" so much they fiercely wanted to keep it that way.

World's Most Competitive Cities - 2015
Site Selection separated the most important global business and industries into 12 sectors :

1. Aerospace
2. Automotive
3. Business and Financial Services
4. Chemical and Plastics
5. Electronics
6. Energy
7. Food and Beverages
8. IT and Communications
9. Life Sciences
10. Machinery, Equipment and Construction
11. Metals
12. Transportation and Logistics

The report broke down the world into 6 regions. In each region the top 5 performing metros were listed in order of performance. Cincinnati was in the the North American region. Cincinnati was ranked in the top 5 in the North American region in 5 of these sectors. It ranked 2th nationally in Aerospace and 2nd in the Food and Beverage Industries. It ranked 4th In the Chemical and Plastics. It ranked 5th in Metals and 5th in Transportation and Logistics. The only other North American cities that did better than Cincinnati in holding top 5 positions in different categories of the 12 most important global business and industries were Dallas (10) , Houston (8), Atlanta (7), and Chicago (6) categories in the (12) most important global businesses and industries. A total of 79 cities from around the world including 14 US cities were profiled in " The Global Investor's Perspective on True City Competitiveness" as The World's Most Competitive Cities. Personally as someone that travels around Cincy during work a lot I'm astounded by the numerous amount of small to mid size businesses in the fields of Chemicals, Metals, Plastics and Moldings, Food and Beverages, Transportation , etc.


Cincinnati is ranked 4th nationally in facility investment projects for 2015 and was ranked 3rd in the year 2014.

Nope. The Pittsburgh metro had a blip on the radar from 2011 to 2014. The losses stabilized due to natural gas drilling. Now it is back to being the way it always was, last in small business startups and last in jobs growth. Low salaries and overpaying for rents or garbage housing that needs torn down.

Cincinnati has a lot more opportunity than the Burgh. Up until the recession there was even more outmigration to northeast Ohio and Cleveland. The Burgh is stagnant and will stay that way for a while.

Not sure why you would call a poster a troll when census figures and the housing market back up the post. I wonder if people are moving to Cincy and they are getting growth.
