Have you ever lived in a fairly big city? Big here means the city itself has a population of over 500,000. Urban agglomeration may exceed 2 million.
Currently (Jacksonville FL) and growing up (Los Angeles).
The past year. Atlanta area.
I believe Mexico City will qualify as a big city...
Yes. I was in SF for 2-3 years. W election. 9/11. The birth of the global warming movement.
Everyone was soooo angry all the time.
Hold a door open at the store (oh, that person wants mill too) and you get grilled in your politics and opinions. I had a person toss the milk they took at my feet because I disagreed with his opinion that W looked like a love-child of a monkey, Alfred E Newman, and Hitler.
(Didn't even have to say I voted for W; I asked how he mixed the DNA of three people- one fed, one a cartoon, and one a simian?)
All of my life.
Metro Area population of 4 million +.
I lived in Los Angeles for about three months. I hated it and moved away to the suburbs.
D.C., L.A., San Jose, and just outside of SF.
Prague - 1.3 million
One of those two. My city's population is only about 325,000, but the county has over 3 million inhabitants.
The valley of the sun
Tianjin, China ... upwards of 14,000,000 😎
Los Angeles county
I do now but I grew up rurally.
I have lived in Jacksonville Florida and Columbus Ohio too. Both big enough for me.
Did you know that Jacksonville is the largest city in the continental USA?
By land area, it’s important to specify. How “large” a city is typically refers to population, so you are aware.
By area, yes I did. On a good day with no traffic it would take you a good hour and 1/2 to get from NAS Jax to NAS Mayport.
Yes, I lived in Kraków for 5 months when I studied abroad.
It was fine for that period of time, but I would never want to live in a city long term, especially not an American city. I spent most of my life 30 minutes from downtown Chicago and I avoided that place like the plague.
I grew up in Brooklyn 2.6 million. Population of NYC is over 8 million.
Yes. The City of New York!
I can't think of a worse place to be than hell itself
Yes, grew up in Baltimore when the rats weren’t as big as cats.
I live in a suburb about 5-10 mins outside of Fresno, which has a population of about 530,000.
Jacksonville FL, Milwaukee WI, Tampa FL, Houston TX, San Francisco CA, St Louis MO, and Memphis TN.
San Francisco and Washington DC. Cincinnati has a city pop of 300K but the metro area is over 2M. I lived in 2 places within 15 miles of Chicago but I don’t know if they’re in what’s considered the metro area.
San Jose, California
Hong Kong SAR, China
Mexico City, México
Born in NYC and lived there twice
Six weeks in London six weeks in Dublin many years in Seattle three years in Spokane
Houston 4+million and lots of urban sprawl. It’s big in population and area.
37,208 Cottage Grove, MN
Petersburg has over 5,000,000. We are building a house in a suburb of Chicago and the metropolitan area has over 9,000,000 in it.
I’m a city boy
I live in a suburb of Chicago.
I’m pretty certain that if I take my town and all of the bordering towns that there would be more than 500,000 people.
Not unless Birmingham Alabama counts.
Nope. B’ham has an estimated 2018 population of 209,880, & it is the most populous city in Alabama.
The largest city I’ve lived in was Baton Rouge, at 221K.
In AL, the largest city I’ve lived in was probably 40K.
Wow that’s so different than my experience growing up in Southern California. Totally different!
And I think that’s why we’re now made up of 2 Americas, Sea.....those that live in the Heartland and those in the big cities. Neither one of them have a clue what it’s like to live in the other, and our concerns and interests are not the same.
That’s why I vote republican
Munich: 1.4 mil, 2.6 agglomeration
Stuttgart: 600,000, 5+ mil agglomeration.
