I found this on another thread and thought it was interesting, from Forbes.

That's impressive! (Even if there was an 8-way tie for 10th place)! Just reconfirms what I've always thought; that Lexington is an extraordinarily clean city. Thanks for the post, InLondon!

Not bad but to me it is more impressive to see much larger cities on the same list as smaller cities. Lexington is still a pretty clean place.

Forbes statement:
"#10 (Tie) Lexington, Ky.
Population: 260,512

Metro area: 73 square km

Lexington is known as the Athens of the West and as the Horse Capital. It has moved on from there with some manufacturing, a concentration on technology and considerable educational services. It has a public transit system that is mainly buses, a full range of highways and considerable traffic for a clean city."

My remarks:
concentration on technology - what, Lexmark?

full range of highways - none of which go through the city which is why it probably has an advantage in air quality

I would think more along of the lines of all of the Universities myself. :P

Well Lexmark is a highly recognizable name anywhere in the US at least.

Lexington is also probably of the 10 snootiest cities in the world.

Here we go again. You must mean another Lexington. What makes this city seem so snooty to you? If you had a bad experience growing up here or something I am sorry to hear that but don't paint an entire place that way when it just doesn't seem to be the case. Every town has its problems and people that we wish weren't here but all in all the people seem friendly here. Please fill me in on your experiences and how you came to this opinion.
