Houston won't have to worry about becoming part of a megapolis anytime soon. Ironically, unlike most states, there is a huge populated megapolis along the I-35 corridor in the interior instead of along the coast.

At this point, Houston will be the only major city on the Texas coast and the only sizable population draw to the coast. There should not be any other major cities that will form on the Texas coast.

One day, Houston will be the capital of Texas. It will absorb Austin.

You'll see t-shirts and bumper stickers reading "Buffalove" and the more cynical but equally charming "Buffalo Hates You Too." But is this true acceptance or is it overcompensation for an insecurity?
Buffalonians (generally) have pride, but I think the 'fall from grace' was too great for there not to be lingering insecurity about the city's status....

I'm suggesting cities that are secure enough in their offerings, their urbanity, their ability to be that "complete city" that they themselves feel no real need to compare themselves to others.

These cities respect peer cities and recognize their worth because they are comfortable enough in their own offerings that they don't feel threatened.

These are cities where at least a part (a good part) of their population views them as being the "ultimate city" since they honestly do feel they offer the best urban experience out there.

Remember: we're talking about how insiders see their city; the feelings of outsiders don't count. So any comments made here should reflect on how the city sees itself, not what others think. (obviously that doesn't suggest on any level that one can't comment on a city other than their own....it's just those comments need to be how that city sees itself.)

Oklahoma City would be the antithesis to this question. OKC is secure in its non-urbanity.
