I've been to both Nashville and Memphis and I would agree that Memphis does not feel like TN. Some have argued that it belongs in MS or AR.

Greater Phoenix feels more like inland LA area like Ontario/Fontana/north OC than the rest of AZ

Columbus in Ohio. Feels like a prosperous Sun Belt city in a state full of dense, deindustrialized, depopulated cities.

Those cities are more "liberal" and are culturally diverse, it is just once you get a certain distance outside of them, things change.
Of course. I was speaking strictly in comparison to New York City. Every upstate city is doing far better than most will give them credit for, as you pointed out, Albany is growing. It certainly isn't booming though. When you measure New York City against the rest of the state, it will win nearly every time, much to our dismay. I live in Rochester and I love it. The city itself is very progressive, however nearly every single surrounding town and village in the metro leans heavily to the right. I was pointing out that compared to New York City, where the five boroughs overwhelmingly dominate the Tri-State area, upstate cities are weak and decentralized. The City of Rochester only accounts for roughly 20% of the region's population as the market and wealth favors the suburbs. Buffalo, Syracuse and Albany are the same.

I agree with you but living in Austin, you hear people say how pretentious Dallas is. LOL. No one here see it.
