Id agree with this all the way. Nashville definitely has a western feel with its saloons and country music, San Fran also has a certain eastern vibe to it.

St. Louis = the Gateway to the West!
Chicago feels pretty Eastern, IMO.

Westernmost Eastern city - San Francisco
Easternmost Western city - Jacksonville, FL. You could exchange it with Fort Worth Texas and barely notice the difference

Hmmm...I'd really have to think about that one. For starters, I love Nashville—it's one of my fave cities overall. I don't think of it as Eastern at all.

But Western? Maybe the showbiz/entertainment/glitz aspect of it...plus there's that little Vegas-looking wedding chapel near Opryland.

I dunno...Nashville in many ways strikes me as quintessentially Southern more than anything else. Which goes a long way to 'splainin' why I like it so much

How does Atlanta has a "western feel"? I live here and I don't think it does.

ATL has homes made of wood not brick, it never had the dense urban ghettos, when the eastern cities were booming, ATL was a small town.

STL had/has those things that make it an eastern city. Gateway to the West meaning it was the last eastern city before you headed west.

But...what attributes make a city "western" or "eastern"??
