Ok this is a thread for everyone, just give something your city has special to it, it can be anything from

In San Juan Puerto Rico, the fast-food restaurants such as Burger King have espresso for coffee and offer sweet fried plantains as a side dish (french fries are not so popular.)

Detroit has one of the worst mayors in the nation... He runs the city like he's all that matters, spends millions on himself and his family/friends, has more bodyguards than most rappers, talks/looks/dresses like a thug.

We also have some crazy bums in downtown Detroit. My two favorite are the legless guy who pushes himself on his wheelchair through traffic blocking it to ask for money and then the guy who walks around playing an acoustic guitar... But he doesn't actually play it - He smacks it like a drum and then makes electric guitar noises with his mouth.

Though I moved out of Detroit a couple years ago, to Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor, which are located west of Detroit. The people there like to think they're not a suburb of Detroit, because they're rich, snobbish, stuck up, arrogant, U of M people, when in reality, they really are just a suburb. Maybe Ann Arbor wasn't 20 years ago, but due to urban sprawl it damn well is now.

Also, people in Ann Arbor refer to their city as "A2." Go back to the majority of them all being morons and it'll make sense. No, not really... It's also one of the most liberal cities in the nation.

I can go on in my loathing of the two places, but I'll spare you... For now.

I live in Dayton, OH.

My city really bites because it is becoming another Detroit or Cleveland due to industry moving out, but there are some cool things here.

We have the Air Force Museum, probably better than the Smithsonian Air and Space and I have been to both.

We have Carillon Park, which houses the original Wright Brothers bicycle shop, various antiquities of turn of the century inventions that gained Dayton notoriety, even some steam trains.

We have a huge collection of historical artifacts through the Dayton Historical Society, incluiding the NCR archives of priceless pictures of turn of the century stuff.

We have a cool levy/dam system that keeps us from being flooded like New Orleans was, but our leaders in 1913 did it right.

Mendelsons surplus. Quite possibly the largest commercial and industrial surplus store in the midwest just 1 mile from my house....a tinkerers treasure trove.

The City spares no expense on fireworks 3 times a year, which I can see clearly from my house - I do not need to even drive to downtown.

The Dayton Air Show. This year they had the US Army precision helicopter team doing aerobatics with UH-1 Cobras. Not that I went to it, because I see all kinds of strange military craft taking off all the time from WPAFB.

Hydroplane races at Eastwood lake.

Woodland Cemetary & Arboretum. Noted dead people are; Agnus Moorehead(mother witch from Bewitched), Erma Bombeck, Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Charles Kettering (inventor of electric car starter), Col. Daniel Mead (started Mead Paper empire), George Newcom (original settler of Dayton), John Patterson (formed NCR), Wilbur & Orville Wright & family.

My village has a post office, bank, Quick Chek, parking lot, mail box, two bridges (the little bridge and the big bridge), a Vets, a Moose, two car dealers, a veggie stand open on weekends (at one of the car dealers, her hubby is a mechanic there), a fire hall (then up the street three houses is my house), an EMS station, a ball field and an old school. Methodist, Presbyterian, Orthodox and Catholic churches and the Alexander Cemetery.

Across from the post office, next to the bank is a little brown brick bungalow covered in ivy that is a shrine to Doc Baker, a pioneer in sports medicine who died about twenty years ago or so. He was a queer little thing that took care of the local towns' atheletes when they suffered injuries. In his backroom he provided the boys a space to work out under his instruction (and learing eyes?). I don't know but it's been said that he PAID THEM $2 each for coming in after school for workouts and it's also been said that they did it Spartan style--in the nude.

But the $2 gave them gas and date money and actually put some of them thru college, back in the day. And I've never heard one say that he ever touched them though.

My neighbor, who also happens to be my class president, says the boys just went to the back door anytime they had an injury that needed fixing--sprains, stepped on a nail, tetanus shot, etc. While the regular patients sat up front in the waiting room for hours on end to be seen by the good doctor.

NYC has almost everything but the thing I notice most tourists flocking to is NAked Cowboy and his new counterpart Naked Cowgirl

Naked Cowboy is a big guitar strumming dude who plays guitar wearing his tighty whiteys, a cowboy hat and boots. He can usually be found, posing for pictures, in the center of Times Square.

Across the street is Naked Cowgirl. She is the female equivalent, playing in bra and panties. Not very appealing.

Crackheads, junkies and chavs.

Oh, and I saw a pornstar walking around the city centre the other day. I was like
