appreciate a place that is a big city like New York City but not be arrogant about it, such as in my case.

Im annoyed how some people on "city data" seem to look down upon places that arent big cities. I am from New York City but I can respect places that are not big cities like NYC and I like certain things about NYC a lot. The big cities wouldnt exist if it wasnt for the food grown in areas that arent big cities, and some people seem to forget how much we have to rely on the natural resources Earth has and how we need to protect these areas for Earth to not collapse. I feel like there should be progressive sophisticated investment in places that arent big cities as well and not just big cities. Every place on Earth CANT BE a big city. It wouldnt be sustainable at all.

And Im annoyed by how some people view people who dont come from big cities and think the people from places like that arent as cultured/intellectual/interesting as people from big cities on so on. I actually know many people not from big cities that are more cultured/intellectual/interesting than people I know from certain big cities. I have close friends from New York City but I have close friends from rural ohio and pennsylvania and I repect those friends not from NYC just as much and find then to be such cultured/intellectual/interesting people.

Even though Seattle is "less urban" than New York City in some ways, I'll take Seattle any day over New York CityThere are certain things I like about New York and what it represents but some things I truly dislike about that place, the quality of life with certain things, and what it represents. And I am a "cultured, urban" type of person with high ambitions. I am very picky too. If I decide to not live in Seattle, it would be San Francisco and if it wasnt San Francisco, I would likely go back to live In New York.
