    some city in the Bay Area

    or maybe NYC to represent the east coast, and some city from the Bay area to represent the West.

    Hell...every time i see a New Yorker(East Coaster) in San Jose i can easily say they are not from here...they stick out like a sore thumb:P


    my choice = NYC and San Francisco
    Maybe San Jose instead of SF

    WOAH! what about PHILADELPHIA? It is the birthplace of the country after all... It'also got cheesesteaks to represent unhealthy US cuisine, industrial history (esp. had one of the biggest navy yards), the Philllies won the series in '08, and now the Flyers are in the cup series.

    Also for consideration: Washington, DC.

    NYC is a "world city", or a global city if you prefer. Hence, it is completely disconnected from the country where it is located: just like the theory says, it has no "Hinterland".

    This was the case of Venice during the middle ages. Venice wasn't representative of Italy at all; it was something... apart.
    Hence, I'd say that NYC is the city that represents the US the least.

    It is very difficult to pick a place that would represent such a complex country like the US. Hence, you can forget San Francisco, New Orleans, Miami or Boston. It must be a city with no specific flavor, no specific character, a very stereotypical, dull and depressing place. A place where even if you haven't set foot there before, you still sense a weird feeling of deja-vu.

    Hence, I'd rather pick something like Atlanta, Saint-Louis or Kansas City.

    You do not get this feeling in STL or Atlanta. STL is a conduit of evil and Atlanta is too Southern. Kansas City... yes.
