My own city Waco,Tx.

It's located in a beautiful setting with the brazos river running right through it,but it dosen't take advantage of it. Also Cameron Park which trails along the river.

Baltimore is slowly realizing it's potential:

Milwaukee...beautiful lakefront, 90 miles from Chicago (40 miles from the Chicago metro area), very diverse, an abundance of historic architecture, more festivals than you can shake a stick at, 80 miles from 2 world class institutions (UW-Madison & Northwestern) as well as 2 great univiersities inside of the city (Marquette & UWM)--but despite all of this, it has a "second city" mentality.

Baltimore: One of the truly underrated cities in this country. Love the pictures, I could see myself living there.

This thing needs to go though, what a monstrosity. I am surprised this thing got the green light:

I agree. But it has gotten better in recent years. Older homes are being rehabbed and the Mayors of the 16 counties in the Metro area are having a meeting about development on the riverfront.

St. Louis has not met its potential, but fortunately something is being done (and hopefully this one won't be just talk).

Are you kidding? Portland (I assume you are talking about the one in OR) is beautiful, vibrant, safe, clean, gorgeous setting, economically thriving, great transporatation system, progressive leadership, beautiful public and private spaces and an excellent mix of old and new architecture.

What do you see as Portlan'd's true potential, danco, and how are they missing the mark?
