Besides football, why is there a rivalry between Pittsburgh and Cleveland? I've been to Cleveland and there's no contest. It's flat and, for being next to Lake Erie, surprisingly ugly. It has the most charmless downtown outside of Atlanta and did I mention how flat it is? Which do you prefer, and why?


It would be nice if the only people who reply to this are people who have actually been to both cities.

I've never been to Cleveland, but Pittsburgh is depressingly boring. Cleveland via TKO (bias).

I prefer the people in Pittsburgh to those in Cleveland. They are more civil and better mannered. That reason alone is enough to cast a vote for Pittsburgh.

i don't like pittsburgh, but it has the edge on cleveland. they're both pretty boring (in different ways), but pittsburgh has better architecture and it's more unique.

I'd go for Pittsburgh, but Cleveland is far from flat. Look at the names of some of its burbs: Cleveland Hts, Shaker Hts, Maple Hts, etc.

People dont know much about Cleveland. It is not that flat. East of the city is all hills and south of it is hills/valleys. If you want to see flat go to Columbus/Indianapolis/Dayton. Cleveland is not that boring and there is good architecture here, it is also very unique. It just so happens that a lot of you are bias and talk bad about Cleveland for no reason.

Hillside, you seem to have a lot against Cleveland for no reason. Tell me, how is Cleveland boring compared to other cities its size? You are from Cincinnati and how is Cincinnati less boring than Cleveland? Obviously you are biased but it seems like you are here with an agenda. I have lived in Cincinnati before and have family there and never saw it as being a place that is less boring than Cleveland at all. If anything, Cleveland is a lot less boring and has more things going on. Pittsburgh seems less boring than Cincinnati but not quite the same level as Cleveland, still Im going to have to go with Cleveland.

Been to both numerous times and I will go with Pittsburgh. Cleveland actually has greater potential with the waterfront but as of now, the way it is designed and layed out, it is not to accomodating. Cleveland is closer to the Great Lakes region in northern Michigan which is beautiful. But Pittsburgh is a bit more active with more in-tack neighborhoods.

Here we go again. Someone calls a city boring and someone gets bent out of shape. Nuts...
