Does your city make you pound your chest or does the state you live in make you proud? I have more pride in my city (Atlanta) but really don't have much in the state (Georgia)...I guess because my city has a more positive image than the state (if that makes any sense). Anyway do you like your city more or your state more and why? If you want list your city/state.

My state more. I used to be just as fiercely proud of NY City also, but after too much Jersey-bashing from mostly fake, transplanted "New Yorkers" as well as from people across the country who talk down about NJ, I am definitely more proud of NJ.

For people like me, who live in the metro area of a city in another state, I'm sure the experience is the same for most of them. For example, when I worked in Cincinnati, I noticed all the Ohioans used to put down Kentucky, even though Kentucky is part of the Cincinnati metro area (even their airport is in KY). Kentuckians were a lot nicer about it than Jerseyans, though. I always took up sides with the Kentuckians, even though I love Ohio also.

State. Our cities are tiny and it's hard to tell where one ends and another begins.

Both. Even though I like all the major cities in my state except for a few (sorry Fresno and Bako) I get tired of the NorCal/SoCal rivalry and the attitude of some Northern Californians towards SoCal. I am proud of where I grew up (Bay Area) and where I live now (San Diego) but I think some people in this state are too prideful and brag too much.

City all the way! I think my name says it by itself Milwaukee City, plus Milwaukee was a city before WI was a state. Another thing people have a positive image of Milw and hicks and cheese heads if I say I'm from WI.

This may sound sort of stupid but when I went to school in East TN I noticed that mentioning the ATL kept a conversation going with some dimes from Knoxville; I tried the "I'm from GA" card once and only got an "Oh" from a girl but fortunately she pulled a "I thought you were from Atlanta" card on me to further the conversation. The moral of the story is that GA means dull and country and ATL has some life to it. It's basically the same as your situation.

I have alot of state pride in Georgia, but also believe I live in a great city. I guess it depends on what you value, but I kind of see Atlanta as a detriment.
