Houston is like Los Angeles but without the walkable commercial corridors.

Dallas and Phoenix are very master planned cities, even in the core. Lots of strip nodes at the confluence of gridded arterials. Two outliers in my view. Even Houston and Atlanta are messier and more organic, thankfully.

Atlanta, Charlotte, and Raleigh are all variations on the same theme. Good downtown surrounded by sprawl

Flint and Detroit —very similar, good downtown surrounded by blight.

Oklahoma City and Tulsa are at one of a midwestern urban spectrum with Minneapolis and Columbus in the other. One one end dusty parking lots interspersed with monumental architecture and drive in fast food, on the other infill and vibrancy and high real estate values

Chicago and Milwaukee obviously

St. Louis, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh are brothers
