I would actually consider Harvey, IL inner city. Im sorry I didnt specify that more. By the suburbs I meant the stereotype of a suburb, a nice neighborhood that outside of the city.

Harvey, IL is in the same position as Camden, East Cleveland, Compton, etc. Their all like inner city outside of the main city. Technically their suburbs but I think most people would agree they have really nothing in common with the suburbs and everything in common with the inner city. Take me for example, I was born in the inner city in Cleveland, and mostly grew up in rough areas of Lorain and Elyria (cities outside of the main city of Cleveland), so I consider myself from the inner city.

I put suburbs since I came from there. Last address was in the midst of basic urban sprawl with apartments in a basically business area. I moved from a city of almost 300k (intermingled with all the other cities around so there were a lot more) to a small town of 8/9k, and am very greatful for the change. But as long as the "wow" factor is there (wow, look at all the open space) the from should be urban

I lived in suburba most of my life but hated it. I now live in a city of 30,000 people; I'm a mile or two off from the city center and this area has a bit of a "small town" feel even though it is part of the city.

Im from an inner-ring suburb of Cleveland, Euclid Ohio. Its very much like Cleveland so its more inner city like. Where I live now is Colorado Springs. Its around 380,000 people and 600,000 people in the metro area. I live in an area called Briargate and its more of a suburban part of town. Then also where I live Im only about 60 miles from Denver and their metro area has close to 3,000,000 million people.

I put "other" because I'm from a large town. We're not really rural but we're not really a major city either.
