    I'm surprised that St. Louis was on the list. I figured Kansas City would have been given that it was recently moved to Kansas ;)

    Interesting that Idaho, Utah, and Texas did not have a city on the list.

    I didn't see Waldo or Interlachen on the list, maybe I skipped over it. :)

    Edit: I saw Oviedo made the 30 best small cities list. I concur. I would have added Clermont as well.

    Johnstown is an armpit in my state, I am suprised it still has 17k residents. The loss of population in Pittsburgh is misleading, what has happened a few of the neighborhoods became their own municipalities and a flight out to the suburbs(North to Butler County and South to Washington) in the Meds and Eds boom in the early 2000's. We have grown slightly since 2000, the whole metro area as a whole.

    Youngstown on the list is a dead town, it died in the early 80's when the Steelworkers Union and horrid plant management killed the US steel industry through graft, greed(Steelworkers made over $38 per hour plus huge lifetime benefits in 1982) and government incompetence. Pittsburgh is one of the rare areas in the US where white poverty is worse than people of color.

    Why is Kansas City split between Kansas and Missouri? Navigating the Greater Kansas City Metropolitan area can be a little difficult. The real trickiness lies in the fact there are technically two Kansas CitiesKansas City, Kansas, and Kansas City, Missouri.
