Hello all. So, I just ran the numbers of how many people live in one of the top 50 biggest cities in the U.S. and got out roughly 45 Million. This is rough no doubt, but its in the ball park.

I was just wondering if there are any characteristics that most of those who are apart of that 45 Million share. Things that people tend to do because they live in an urban environment? What have you noticed/seen?

I'm not one of them but I'm going to say they walk more (as opposed to driving) than the rest of us.

Have you spent any time in rural America? There is a lot of poverty in rural America as well as in big cities.

I love some of the comments you get on this forum. You are right, there are a lot of poor people in rural America.

And the biggest shocker, there are some really rich and big houses in the cities

Wouldn't you mean the opposite in a lot of cases? You think People in New York, Seattle, San Fran, Boston, Chicago, Washington DC, Atlanta, Dallas, San Diego, etc. etc. are all poor? LOL.


I think you should go by metro area populations, not just larest 50 cities. Some of the 50 largest cities are actually just huge suburbs of other large cities.

Money doesn't make one truly rich. I'd rather be poor but living within my means in rural America any day.

But with money you can live within your means anywhere you'd like including cities! As long as you are happy where you are,right?
