We have all been to them, those smaller Cities, "not necessary small" but Smaller Cities that off the back remind us of those Mega Cities we all know and love namely ( New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago to name a few. ) It's not limited to these big boys because we have 10 Cities in the US over a Million. I went high with this population to 700,000 because of Consolidated governments in the country so some of these smaller Cities actually have pretty high populations like Louisville, KY for example. I might get beat up for this one but I have always thought Atlanta, sorta kind of reminded me of LA minus the Palm Trees.. This is mainly due to its Massive sprawl, freeways and hilly areas..

This is another one of those city population deals. Again I wished people would go MSA or at least urban area.


Atlanta looks astronomically huge for a city of 460,000 people, it absolutely dwarfs Colorado Springs at 455,000 people. How could this be??? I mean do we completely ignore the other 5.3million people living in Greater Atlanta that contribute to the market size??

With all due respect.. I promise I'm not trying to be rude...but what larger city does Miami remind you of?
To me.. it's so unique it can't be compared to any larger U.S. city...

San Francisco has a big city feel equivalent to a city with a much larger population.

Edit: Nevermind - San Francisco's population is 860K so it doesn't fit in this category

I get your point but reason being, focusing on City limits here, not the entire Metro or entire Urban area so inner City density and feel has a lot to do with feel..
