Les Nessman. Took the Redeye to Omaha. He loved it because it was "so flat". Bland Omaha architecture never entered the picture.

I almost neglected to mention that Hartford has the tallest residential structure, Hartford 21, in the New England area.

Oh man, that reminds me of the time I spent a weekend in a Council Bluffs motel with Bailey Quarters.

I always thought Jan Smithers aka Bailey Quarters was more attractive than Lonnie Anderson. She seemed more like the girl next door.

He must work either for the Omaha Conventions and Visitors Bureau or the Omaha Chamber of Commerce. One thing I have to admit and that is he's sold me on the "one size fits all" concept of Omaha. Need a cold climate? Omaha's got it. Need Palm Trees? Omaha has those too. Need a mountain range? Omaha's got it.

Here's something else Omaha does not have.

Old State House (Hartford - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

And we have plenty of religious institutions as well.

Emanuel Lutheran

Cathedral of Saint Joseph - Hartford, Connecticut

Beth El Temple

Welcome to Asylum Hill Congregational Church

Center Church, The First Church of Christ in Hartford

EmanuelSynagogue.org

And great parks.

Healthy Hartford: Hartford Parks (http://www.healthy.hartford.gov/OpenSpace/OSParks.htm#Elizabeth - broken link)

DEP: Penwood State Park

DEP: Talcott Mountain State Park

And the Heublein Tower.

There are only two kinds of people. I was a Bailey guy when I was 6 and I'll always be a Bailey guy. I have a feeling this thread is going to be moderated soon. Unless the moderator is a Bailey guy. (waves)

I'm going to say Detroit as it probably has the most potential of any city. I know, everyone is saying to themselves that Detroit sucks, but think about it; everything is already there just waiting for someone to come in and with enough money, some renovations and one heck of a clean-up and Detroit will once again be a world-class city.
