As the title says, if you could personify your city what would it look like? Or if you aren't from a city, who's are the people that come to mind when you think of it?

Let me start with L.A.:

A blonde actress who rides around in a expensive vehicle with a dog in the passenger seat.

OR

An ese (Mexican gangmember) who owns a lowrider.

See what I mean? It can be stereotypical like the aforementioned examples or something different, just as long as it makes sense with that city.

Portland, Oregon

A vegan freegan anarchist with dreads, second hand faded skinny jeans, a kerchief around the neck, and a beaten up back pack with patches, and possibly a dog, has bad tattoos, and lives on welfare and panhandled money.

Or...

A slightly overweight, slightly redneck suburban mother who drives a big old domestic truck, has bad tattoos, and got pregnant in high school, and lives on welfare.

Phoenix: Love the Mexican running from Arpaio suggestion above. I also see lots of true cowboys driving big trucks, hauling horses or hay. But I live close to Cave Creek so that may explain the cowboy attire I see every day. Well, that and lots of Harley attire. Ah, who knows?

Chicago

Female: pasty faced, grisled voice, lots of dark arm hair, slight paunch, junk in the trunk, roots showing in her home dye job, wears mostly black and if feeling sassy wears dark gray, accessories are cheap scarves and conductor style raggamuffin hats.

Male: pasty faced, douchey goatee, $10 haircut, wears blue jeans (even to bed and to funerals) baseball cap, t-shirt with the emblem for some small college team nobody's heard of, "gym" shoes and sometimes a "hoodie"
