About as far away as you can go and still stay in the Lower 48. There is an obsession with kings there, with the now destroyed Kingdome, the fact Seattle is in King County, and KING-TV. Of course, the king of the world, Bill Gates, who partly contributed to this and every other entry on this page, lives near Seattle, in Medina.
Sir Mix a Lot is from Seattle.
Stamford is overrated. Yeah, low crime and all, but there's no affordable housing for sale, traffic is horrendous, Metro-North fees keep going up, public school kids are stupid, downtown is a concrete jungle... I do love the beaches - you can sit down on the sand, close your eyes and listen to the Hondurans playing their Spanish music. Almost feels like you're in the Caribbean. Then take a swim, read a book and start the journey home, still smelling the salt air as you cruise down Shippan Avenue. Man, you was wrong. Stamford's the shit! You've got the mall, the library, the new Target and low crime! And diversity! And the library has a Starbucks. I'm sold.
Q: "So, where are you from?"

Q: "I don't get it."

Southern portion of Miami Beach. Locals do not refer to it as SoBe but rather as South Beach. Some overpriced restaurants but good beaches. Like in Miami proper, hard to find people speaking English in most of the stores.
Metrorail does not go into SoBe, so we had to take the bus across the MacArthur Causeway.
1. Name of many cities. The largest and most well-known Springfield is in Massachusetts
. It's home to the Basketball Hall of Fame. Springfield, IL is also well-known by elementary school students as a state capital, but otherwise, it's a backwater. Springfield, MO is even more of a backwater but it's home to SW Missouri State Univ (SMS). There are also smaller Springfields in New Jersey
. None of these are worth discussing.
2. The fictional town where TV's The Simpsons live. It's not supposed to be in any state; rather, it's Springfield, USA. Identifying it with any real city would be a real embarassment because this Springfield is home to a fake barf
We drove through Springfield on our way to Springfield.
