It didn't feel like a NE city to me, more sunbelt, which it is. NE cities are very dense while Atlanta isn't very dense

According to the U.S. Census Bureau:


CITY POPULATION (2006)
Columbus: 733,203
Cincinnati: 332,252
Cleveland: 444,313

Cincinnati (332,252) + Cleveland (444,313) = 776,565

Population of Cincinnati + Cleveland = 776,565
Population of Columbus = 733,203

Difference: 43,362

Therefore when I said that Columbus was almost as large as Cincinnati and Cleveland combined, I wasn't exaggerating. I wasn't referencing metropolitan areas, as I generally don't give much credence to Rust Belt suburbs/exurbs that just fleece vitality out of their respective host cities like parasites.

Default New Orleans and Louisiana

Politically, economically, socially, it is different from much of the rest of La. Way up north near the Arkansas border, you would never know New Orleans was anywhere near. Not good nor bad, right or wrong, it just is.

Omaha is a very large city while the rest of Nebraska is vastly rural. Omaha is also humid and more like a midwestern city while the rest of the state is somewhat dry and a part of the Great Plains.

San Francisco. Most CA cities are filled with SFR while SF has a lot of higher density buildings and even the SFR are much smaller.

NYC
Chicago
New Orleans
Detroit
Austin, TX
Honolulu-very rushed and urban while HI is mostly laid back and rural
Anchorage-city vs. wildlife

I think Los Angeles is unique within California but, that being said, it doesn't belong in America much at all.

True, and the rural area is vast. However, half the people in Nebraska live in the Omaha/Lincoln area, so maybe it does represent a goodly portion of the state? DH, who is from Omaha, calls it "Mid-Plains" or "Great West", ie, a combination of both.
