Dat inspiration.

New York City? Yeah, I'm definitely proud. We've managed to reduce crime in this place so much, it really astounds me sometimes. It's also just really well known, so maybe I'm a little biased? Hah, but yeah. NYC is my baby.

Sydney is actually one of the cooler parts of Australia to live in, and anyone who follows the Olympics would know it cuz it hosted the Olympics in 2000, which were apparently the first ones I ever watched on TV. Some people think it's weird because it has a bridge that looks like a giant coathanger but it's a very iconic part of Australia but it's a really great tourist destination. I only live like two suburbs south of the city area itself but I still do live fairly close. And also it's home to some of Australia's most famous beaches as well!

I think it's a great part of Australia to live in, and I wouldn't have liked living anywhere else.

    I'm from Detroit and I am not proud of it. It's bankrupt and crime is insanely high, there isn't much to be proud of.

    Montreal? It's not bad. Lots and lots of events during both winter and summer (Obviously there's more in summer, but wtv :])

    Thing I hate? Expensive public transport fee and they're not reliable at times you need them to be and always constructions going around in Montreal so it's hard to drive around. But security wise, it's really nice. We've had 12 murders since January which isn't so bad right? Compared to other cities.

    We have a good number of malls here and it's also home to the biggest underground mall in the world (Which is getting boring for me now, since I go there often)

    But Montreal is a nice place for both living here and visiting, I like my city and I'm not planning on moving to another city, I wanna stay here :3

      pros: one of the cheapest places in the nation, plenty of stuff to do, not redneck like the rest of the state
      cons: everyone thinks there's nothing to do and that it's redneck like the rest of the state, dumbass governor

      I'm quite proud of my hometown, regardless of whatever happened to my city.

          Since my hometown is basically a gang infested trashheap nowadays I wouldn't say that I'm proud of it in the slightest.

          My hometown of Hines Creek? A place where farmers and drunks collide. Nothing more to say, really.

          Hm.

          My hometown is full of drunks and junkies. As in, people who are just really stupid and...yeah.

          I'm not really proud, but home is home, and that's what counts.

          My hometown of Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico...

          Not so much, actually. Lately crime has been a huge factor there, and traffic is effing horrible. So no. I hate it there sooo much.

              Woodbridge, the suburbs of Toronto. I think the only annoying thing I could say about it are the bad public transportation, and the parking-lot loiterers, and the spoiled kids, but everything else is really nice. In retrospect, the cons aren't even that bad at all. Especially with having Toronto right closeby, it's easy to go into the city if you wanted to have a day out or find something you needed. I'm proud of it and I miss it.

              I have not been to my hometown in over 17 years, Anaheim CA (which is a suburb of Los Angeles), so I don't know how its changed for the good or bad, so when I was there I was young so I remember very little of it. I can't rate my hometown at all. I would love to go back and visit some day.

              My hometown is St.Louis, Missouri which I still live in today. I would say I'm proud of living there for the most part. Crime rate there is a bit lower it seems than it was, but it consistently has been placed as the most dangerous city in US, but it hasn't been as bad as it used to be it seems. Though I haven't witnessed as much crime in my area of the city. One plus is that traffic's pretty good here. While I wouldn't say it isn't non-existent, it's not as bad as some cities. It's easy to get from one place to another without much delay. Though some time you might have be stuck in jam, but they only last 2-5 minutes tops. One thing I love about St. Louis is there's many fun things to do that are free. We have a free zoo, a free art museum, free science museum and planetarium, free history museum , and an outdoor musical theatre that has 1500 free seats and with 11000 seats in the largest outdoor theatre in the nation, also known as The Muny. The Muny is rather famous too cause there's been numerous numbers of celebrities who's appeared in shows. For example , John O Hurley from Seinfeld, was in their performance of Spamalot and played King Arthur too, the main role. I went last Monday and it was excellent! And Phyllis Smith from The Office is gonna be in an upcoming version of the musical Nunsance .Plus we have The Cardinals, the most decorated and most successful baseball team in all of MLB history with eleven World Series championships, 18 National League pennants, and ten division titles.

              So overall, I would say I'm proud for most part, though there's some things like crime , I'm not so happy of.

              My hometown is Tampa, in which I reside now in one of its many suburbs. I am not proud of it because I've lived here my entire life, but I at least know my way around the city without a GPS.

              However, I guess what makes me proud is that crime in Tampa is nothing like crime in the neighboring county of Polk, where crime is tremendous.

                When I was less than a year old, I moved away from my hometown and never re-visited for much time, so I don't think I have a good opinion on it. Although for the next five years I lived in a place of extreme awesomeness and stuffz. Added to that was natural beauty and having an actual garden, as well as befriending a wild peacock. Nostalgia hits me all day long

                  Depends on which one I count. I don't remember living in Brooklyn all too well because I was so young, but I certainly don't take pride in the craphole where I grew up in SC (not gonna name the actual city). Actually, all of SC is a craphole.

                    I used to be, but not now. It used to be a beautiful community with everything you needed. Next thing I know I am standing in a wasteland of drunkies, weirdo's and most probably perverts.

                    WHY DOES GOD HATE NICE TOWNS???!!!

                    Half of that city is all scenic and stuff. The rest is a crime-ridden mess. I'm from somewhere in between those places haha.
                    But yeah sure. It's a pretty cool place, so long as you someone isn't mugging you. {:

                    If you mean where I live now, it's pretty uninteresting. The occasional drug bust or shooting. It really isn't the kind of place where you want to be alone at night. Especially in a nearby forest. That's one of those places you avoid going to alone at all costs, no matter what time of day. >_<

                    My hometown is a little, rich, exurban town in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis and Saint Paul) area. I like the town, and it's not a terrible place to live, but it's so far from everything that I'd like to move to a larger town that actually has some public transportation. They're not terrible at planning for future growth, but the people refuse to support any sort of mass-transit in the area, so that will probably come back to bite them in the rear at some point.

                    The Twin Cities as a whole, however, are something I am very proud of, given the fact that there is a lot of intercity cooperation on how things should develop regionally, including various rail lines, with many of those proposals actually starting to get done this decade. It's also a pretty nice place to live, even in the worst neighborhoods.

                    I'm neutral on Denver. I grew up in a quiet and older neighborhood so it wasn't too bad. Some of the city is pretty while others looked like a steaming pile of crap (some just left there to rot.) I might be returning to it eventually whether I like it or not, but I prefer where I am now.

                    Everyone around me says this town sucks but It's just the people in it that suck. We've got some idiots living here.. But overall it's a nice town. Minus the idiots.

                    I guess.

                    I would rather not live here but y'know, it's tolerable.
