Smile What kind of area do you live in?

I just want to get a quick visual on where most of us here live. What kind of area I mean.

Smaller city (I call it a small town) unfortunately. It gets sooooo boring here. I am hoping to be in a big city sometimes within the next two years.

Where I currently live, they call Naples, Florida, a City, but it only has a population of 21,000. A CITY? No, I don't think so.

I was born and raised in NYC. 9 million???? A mega CITY. I lived in Smithtown, LI, for 20 years a TOWN with a population of 115,000.

One horse town where I now live.

I live about a block outside the city limits. But I wouldn't call it a suburb, so Big city

Basing anything of off city-limit population provides for an inaccurate comparison. If anything, it should be over 1 Million in the MSA for a "big" city. I know plenty of "big" cities that don't have 1 Million people in the city limits (Boston, Miami, Seattle, San Francisco, etc) and plenty of mid-size cities that have city-limit populations that make them appear larger than cities like Boston or Miami (i.e. Jacksonville).

Anyway, I'm now in a big city (Boston). I was most recently in a VERY small city (in fact, going by the constraints of this poll, I couldn't categorize it as it's not even half the size of the minimum "small city" requirements) in Portland, ME which had 63,000 residents.
