True dat. Once you leave the Cincinnati area (the I-275 loop) the culture changes big time depending on the state. I could write a book about it.

Ann Arbor has a lot of transplants from the NYC area (mostly college students). Still, I don't think that it feels very Northeastern to me. Maybe a commuter rail line to Detroit would enhance that.

Memphis for Tennessee (West TN is more Deep South while the rest of the state is Upland South). Or St. Louis for Missouri

It's been alluded to in other posts, but I feel the SF and the Bay Area in general feel more Northeastern than Western, mainly due to density and public transit.

Nowhere in the country do you have that cultural and historic blend of French, Spanish and African among other cultures, besides the South. Nowhere do you get that same sultry year round warm weather, than in the South. Nowhere do you get those live oaks with massive mossy branches forming beautiful canopies in the city, than in the South. New Orleans is one of the flagship cities of the South.

Cities that fall in this category are more places like Louisville, which is literally on the border with a northern state. Or Cincinatti which is like the reverse. St. Louis is still solidly Midwestern but it seems to have ties to the delta South via the Missisisppi River. It seems like a northern brother of Memphis. I'm planning to go up there next month.


I agree, St. Louis is like Memphis and Chicago had a baby.

No worries about whether or not we're more densely populated than Chicago. It just isn't in our thought process. That stuff is unique to Texans, outside of Austinites, who are anti-growth and could care less about comparing themselves to other cities.

Pride is a good thing and striving to be the best is as well.
Austin is the epitome of Texas pride! Are you for real? I feel like I'm being trolled here. Many there believe they are the best city in America, with the best nightlife, best food, most educated, most fit, most liberal, with the most construction cranes ad nauseum. I've never encountered in real life anyone from Houston bragging about Houston. Half the people in Dallas are from elsewhere. But people in Austin are very damn proud of their precious city. They are infatuated with it. It's like a borderline religious cult. People there are very concerned with what #1 subjective list they appear in. Talking with some of them is like speaking to a Chamber of Commerce rep. How is "Live Music Capital of the World" not arrogant? I'm sorry, but as an outsider not originally from Texas I just don't know where you're coming from.

Interior Northeast.

Austin doesn't belong in Texas. Dallas or Houston should be the capital. Texan through and theought
