city nicknames

I just did a quick search out of curiosity and came across this: Trivia Asylum.

It looks old ("Optimized for IE 4.0"), but I'm sure more of it still holds true. I saw a few that I knew of that were missing and some that I thought were ridiculous.

Is there a better list somewhere?

Any comments on this list?

I like the fact there are three Venices, three of them being in the North.

I'm also surprised how the forgot Athens of the South. We built the Parthenon, for goodness sakes, yet they managed to forget us, but remember Celery City.

Hartford is known as the Insurance Capital of the World but a new marketing campaign to bring people to the city a few years back started the nickname "New England's Rising Star" which is still being used today.

New Orleans has many nicknames...

The two that are used most often are "The Big Easy" and "The Crescent City"

But there's also "The City That Sin Forgot" "The Original Sin City" "Paris of America"

and "Jewel of the South"

That list says that Miami is the "Magic City"! That's Birmingham's nickname!

The list also forgot about Huntsville's famous nickname- the Rocket City. I have heard someone call Huntsville the "prison city", obviously confusing us with the other Huntsville in Texas.
