Once again-- CHICAGO!
Towers, industry, trains, freeways, cement, shipyards, smokestacks.
Chicago is a big city for guys that need to compensate for smaller things.

Sure there are lots of men in there, but are they "manly"? Thats the question.

Those aren't real men. A manly man likes women, not other men. When a normal person thinks of a man and especially manly, gays aren't in the perception.

This is a horribly ignorant statement.

I also don't think Miami or Las Vegas are very manly. Do you know how much gays and lesbians have an influence on those cities? (Not saying it's a bad thing, but it makes the city less manly)

I would agree with others on your list. Chicago, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Providence, Philly.... all cities with hardcore blue collar manliness.
Manhattan is not manly at all. But Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, Staten Island, and New Jersey are EXTREMELY manly because as much as you think otherwise, gentrification hasn't taken these places like it did Manhattan. Abandoned buildings are not around as much, but the buildings that were redone are now small businesses such as pubs, sports bars, and pizzerias.

No, it's not. Homosexuals consider themselves feminine so how is that ignorant?

There are feminine gays, masculine "bear" gays, and gays who look and act just like you and I, and everything in between.

As far as what cities are manly? From my experiance most parts of Pennsylvania are pretty manly, with the exception of many of the suburban areas south of Blue Mountian (but not all). In other states, I tend to think the more industral cities / cities with industrial heratige tend to be a bit more manly.

But still, the whole idea of a city being more "manly" than each other is kind of silly. No matter where you go you are going to find iffemminate men and manly men. I've met femenised man from the manly Coal Region, and I've also met tough guys from the Allentown suburbs. So the stereotype of a manly area is at best a weak truth or maybe just a media image.

What's funny is this thread is a discussion on 'manly' cities...seems like the topic can't get off of homosexuality.

Homosexuality is not what I think of when someone describes something that is masculine or manly. I have nothing against 'alternative lifestyles', but if you all mean 'manly' in that sense, then San Francisco comes to mind...

Seriously, I can't believe only a couple people said Detroit. Its definitely the most masculine city in my eyes. When I think of Detroit I think of the Pistons, Red Wings, Tigers and Joe Louis. I think of the Motor City, America's Poorest City, hard-times and blue-collar people.

I guarantee if you say 'Detroit', people don't think of gay bars, femininity, manicures and pedicures.
