If you live in or love a place that is underappreciated, here’s your chance to share the love.
People in Cleveland are probably feeling a certain way right now. Tell us why you love your city.
I will start with Oakland, Ca. I spend most of my time here (though I live across the Bay in San Francisco.) I will say that the Mexican food is better in Fruitvale (Oakland neighborhood) than SF’s Mission District (and I live there!)
I also feel that the neighborhoods in Oakland are strong. I knew way more of my neighbors when I lived here than I ever do in SF. I mean, my usual bus driver and I know each other’s names. That would never happen in San Francisco.
Sing your underappreciated city’s praises!
ETA: If you live out in the country, feel free to join in!
I am from the Mojave Desert. You know, near Barstow and Victorville. Joshua trees still stir something in my soul even though I live hundreds of miles north of them now. Lots of faults in the towns, but the natural beauty is amazing in some parts.
