Let's see what folks have to say on the matter: Louisville vs. Indianapolis vs. Cincinnati

I enjoy Chicago as a city, but it seems like a lot of you dislike other Midwestern cities for not being Chicago.

Our arogance towards other midwestern cities, most regretable, is sadly as you describe.

Denver 20-30 years ago was very insecure. The city felt it was always being perceived nationally as an overgrown cow-town. I can remember reading in the Rocky Mountain News, after the Broncos lost their first Super Bowl to the Cowboys, one of the columnist wrote (paraphrase): Well, we lost the Super Bowl. But the Broncos get the pleasure of returning to beautiful Denver, Colorado while the Cowboys have to go back to Texas. It seemed like we always had to dis other places to make ourselves seem secure. Maybe that happens elsewhere too?

That attitude may be changing now. Denver appears to be maturing as a city and seem more confident in itself.

NYC NYERS don't even care if you hate NY because they love it and hate at the same time.

LA.

LA doesn't need to compete with any other city. It knows its worth.

Yes, to the core. I've had people in Chicago roll their eyes when I say I'm from Cleveland, or react like "Ohio?!" as if I said I was from freakin' Mars. Some were cool about it although I had this one guy who worked at the hotel I was staying in saying that he hoped LeBron never won a championship because of how he treated Cleveland after he left.

New Yorkers are terribly insecure
This is the first line of an op-ed in the NYT on April 16th, 2013, the day after the Marathon Bombings.

I love its atrocious accent, its inferiority complex in terms of New York....

Imagine if the Boston Globe ran a story on Sept. 12 2001 and it started
"Sure they might have second rate Hospitals in Universities, and have a filthy city, but those stupid, sickly, dirty New Yorkers did not deserve what happened yesterday morning."

how is Louisville superior to indy or cincy? Louisville is constantly trying to imitate everything indy does. no pro teams, no true suburbs no nationally recognized international airport with as many direct flights as indy. indys downtown is way more vibrant IUPUI is actually a better school all around than UofL indys downtown canal looks better than Louisville river front. Im serious when I say Louisville is so overrated and its seen on this forum constantly boasting about things that the city really doesn't live up to. indy host super bowls,final fours,college football championship and now the NBA all star game in 2021.even with Louisville convention expansion and new omni downtown its still not big enough to host the larger conventions and events.indy is about to build yet another lager hotel downtown connected to the convention center. a 40 story Hilton brand hotel 800-1000 rooms and a small 600 room hotel,also a Hilton brand. Louisville reminds me of the little brother that wants to hang with the older brother but hes not big enough to hang with the big boys. sorry little louy

seem like and actually live up to it is two different things. Louisville can get really boring after awhile. once the derby,zombie walking dead crap and thunder over Louisville theres nothing to brag about. Louisville boosters will have you thinking if you were blind folded after hearing of this magnificent city paved in gold and emeralds then you remove the blinds and theres Louisville. wow amazing but not close to what they claim the city offers
