Here are the cities that I would pair together.

Portland-Ashville, NC
Boston-New Orleans
New York-Miami
Albany-Tampa
Philadelphia-Orlando
Pittsburgh-Birmingham
Chicago-Atlanta
Detroit-Memphis
St Louis-Jackson, MS
Baltimore-Savannah
Richmond-Charleston, SC
Louisville-Nashville
Norfolk-Jacksonville
Charlottesville-Chapel Hill
Washington D.C.-Raleigh
Milwaukee-Little Rock


Just to avoid confusion, all of the cities on this list are in the Eastern United States and all of the southern cities are south of the 37th parallel north. (Missouri-Compromise Line)

You are just determined to make Virginia a northern state, aren't you?

How very odd, to compare Milwaukee with Little Rock. Clearly, you don't know much about either of these cities.

And Kentucky too. Louisville is generally considered "Southern". Washington, DC is also considered Southern by many, as well as the Census Bureau (but so are Maryland, Delaware, and WV).

I'm not familiar with all the cities, but Philadelphia is nothing like Orlando. They're almost exact opposites in fact.

Seattle - Raleigh/Chapel Hill
Portland - Austin (obviously)
Detroit - New Orleans
New York - Miami (good comparison, Colts, I wouldn't have thought of that)
Chicago - Memphis
Minneapolis - Atlanta? (older city, big for black music, fell far but is rebounding fast, decent public transit in regions that traditionally suck for that)
Indianapolis - Oklahoma City? (almost feels like a Southern city already)
Boise - Chattanooga?

I don't get the Tampa-Albany thing, either.

My thinking was: big blues city, older architecture, once was legendary but has fallen far and is now growing slowly, large black population. Some people have assigned Chicago to Houston or Dallas based on size but I don't think they really fit culturally.

I got your comparison. Really, all of the cities along the Mississippi have a commonality largely due to the post-Civil War diaspora from south to north. We have friends in Chicago that have extended family roots in New Orleans, Memphis and St. Louis. The traditions followed the migration.
