Minneapolis seems to be out of place.

Vineland NJ, in fact, Cumberland County in general, to me, is more removed from what most people perceive New Jersey to be. You'd almost think you were in the South (in fact, you are below the Mason-Dixon Line here) before you thought you were in the most urbanized state in the country. Although there are other what I'd consider 'rural' areas in New Jersey, Cumberland County is different in that it largely escapes the Philadelphia orbit, and its economy is not principally service-based, but rather based on agricultural entities (in this case, food processing).

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.
Columbus is one big suburb outside of the 40 sq miles of city core. The Cincinnati area is very unlike Ohio. It is rust belt and all that, but the density, townhomes, rowhouses, the Republican Party (controls the democratic city from the suburbs), and the hills. All not Ohio.

Austin, TX
Honolulu-very rushed and urban while HI is mostly laid back and rural
Anchorage-city vs. wildlife
Austin is too small to make an impact on Texas; it's just like Madison. That is more of an slight exception to the rule.

Houston is too unique for Texas. Outside of Rodeo (which is going on right now) it feels like a Southern city outside of Texas.

huh? i wasn't trying to attack cities. i thought it was a valid question. nyc by no means represents ny state. same with philly and pa. its not attacking the city or state.

btw, good call with vineland. i found it interesting that millville (its neighbor) has recently been touted as a great town for artists/musicians....


let me throw miami on the list too. its like havana/nyc nestled in south florida.

Not necessarily. In some cases a state with a rather dismal overall external reputation can have one or two cities that truly do shine brightly. I showed this with my own examples. Columbus, for example, is a Sunbelt-like boom town in the center of a state notorious for having urban decline, job losses, etc.

I don't often agree with you, Hillside, but you're dead on about this topic. Columbus very much is in step with the rest of Ohio in its feel and vibe, where Cincinnati is not.

You know you're in Ohio when you're in Columbus. Cincinnati only considers itself a part of Ohio when necessary; instead, its views itself as its own city-state. When I first moved there, I was vaguely confuzzled about what state I lived in, since I rarely heard any news or conversation about happenings in the rest of Ohio.
