I agree with you, Buffalo is a good contender. You hardly ever hear anything about that city honestly. I'd even mention Detroit, and I do know it's mentioned often, but people don't know about how the city is making a comeback and slowly cleaning up. Detroit would be "forgotten" due to ignorance.
I just read that article. I have to agree with you. Talk about over exaggerations.

I'm not sure I understand the question.

Forgotten assumes that the city was well known at one time, and now people don't think about it or know much about it.

If we are talking about Canada, the US and Mexico, well how many Canadians and American really know all the Mexican cities to have forgotten them, rather than never knowing them?

How many Americans have never heard of Saskatoon...so how could they forget it?

Detroit has a little more notoriety because of Motown while Cleveland is known for the river catching on fire in the 1960s.

When LeBron left Cleveland for Miami everybody kept saying he left because Cleveland sucked. It was relentless jokes When he came back to Cleveland it messed up their narrative; a lot of the national media didn't want him coming back to Cleveland because they know they would have to come up here to cover him. Now, that he's won a title in Cleveland they want him to go to L.A. A lot of the national media also feels that cities like Cleveland or Detroit deserve to have anything nice, or Cleveland don't deserve LeBron or a player of his caliber. The only reason San Jose doesn't get trashed is because it's a Bay Area city.
Yeah, and those Cleveland Indians aren't half bad either.

I think you are confusing "most people" with the people on this forum. Most people rarely think of other cities and rarely have an opinion.

It's not just limited to City Data, it's on other social media platforms as well. When most people on other social media platforms hear Cleveland or any other Midwest city outside of Chicago is mentioned, nine times out of ten it's negative (i.e. river catching fire in the '60s, snow, bad sports losses, "Hastily Cleveland Tourism" YouTube videos). They bash them almost every chance they get.

True but people on social media love to throw the 3-1 lead jokes. Oh, and everybody loves to talk about the racist logo.

Milwaukee.

Its metropolitan area is larger than Memphis, Buffalo and Rochester, but it's located in the shadow of Chicago, which dominates the region. Even among Wisconsin cities, Madison and Green Bay get more national attention than Milwaukee does.

Sacramento. It hasn't even been mentioned yet.

If it weren't in California and overshadowed by LA, the Bay Area, and San Diego, it would get a lot more exposure.
