I mean the metro area is close to 6 million. It's a large area. The citizens I have met don't need self validation and could care less what others think of them. Like LA and NYC, I think there's a feeling of "i've arrived" or "I'm in a mecca" when there. No validation needed. They don't worry if they are the hipster capital or if they're among the ten fastest growing markets. Most couldn't tell you how large their market is.

And they're certainly not worried about NYC. They love it and treat it as a weekend getaway.

New Yorkers are basically insufferable when it comes to their city.
NYers visiting Kansas City: What's a good place to eat
Local: there is this good pizza...
NYer: FALSE, no such thing as good Pizza outside the 302 sq miles of the GREATEST city on earth.
Local: How about BBQ?
NYer: Nah I think NYCs BBQ is so good it kind ruined everywhere else for me, I mean you really think KC can compare?
Local: well it's about a mile that way
NYer: A mile? Everything you need in NY is 17.8 feet away from you.

They always want to prove how amazingly awesome NYC is.

I guess there's some truth to that. I'll stand somewhat corrected.

San Diego. Most people seem happy/content with the metro and not overly concerned about its faults and what it's lacking.

NYers are wordy people, so I don't know about that.

Beaches and great weather definitely glosses over flaws.

We Chicagoans obviously can't get over Chicago. We live and breath the place. And celebrate its culture.
