Haha. I knew you would like my statement.

Buffalo still has people in their 20s living there?

Total number of people Age 20 - 29 per metro area (2008 Estimates):
Minneapolis – St. Paul 218,593
Milwaukee – 98,330
Buffalo – 79,127

Others:
Atlanta – 366,805
Boston – 305,372
Seattle – 228,490
Denver – 176,525
Portland – 148,940
Kansas City – 131,508
Charlotte – 112,952
New Orleans – 73,444
Yes, they do. There are a lot of colleges in the Buffalo area. So, that is most likely why they were ranked. That number makes up only about 7% of metro Buffalo though. Which makes me wonder where you got the numbers from. You'll see a lot of them in the Elmwood Village, Allentown, Hertel Ave. and Parkside neighborhoods.

Don't take my comment about Buffalo serious.

I retrieved the numbers from the latest census estimates, which were released in September of this year. However, you're right in questioning the numbers my friend. The actual total 156,838.

I have to update the other numbers as well. UPDATED
Minneapolis - St. Paul – 426,428
Milwaukee – 193,174
Buffalo - 156,838

Others:
Atlanta – 712,836
Boston – 606,832
Seattle – 440,042
Denver – 339,662
Portland – 292,328
Kansas City – 259,560
Charlotte – 223,059
New Orleans – 153,647

I'm not sure about that Forbes list. It places great emphasis on broadway type theatre culture. How many 20 somethings are generally interested in that?

Being of that age group I know far more are interested in concerts, sports, outdoor activities......

Not every 20 something is going to put on a suit an tie and walk into a corporate office, and be intersted in live theatre after work which is exactly what that list is assuming. 8 of the top 10 cities are some of the highest COL areas in the country and it would be difficult to make ends meet on a salary a typical person in their 20's makes. Broadway culture is not rampantly popular like sports and outdoor activites are.

I'd say that list is good for a highly educated professional going into the corporate world, but certainly not for everyone in their 20's.

Cities such as Austin, Phoenix, Houston, Denver, Orlando, Columbus, San Antonio and even Pittsburgh hold more appeal for your average 20 yr old. More jobs, activities that are more universally popular, much lower cost of living

I'm pretty sure that Cleveland wasn't even on this list during the past 3 years...and that Providence was something like #40 last year or the year before that.
Give me Cleveland over Milwaukee anyday!
