I voted Charleston as King, since it was actually named after one and is one of the South's oldest cities and a national treasure. That and I'm biased to SC. ;)

I voted Charlotte as Queen, since it was actually named after one, thus the nickname "The Queen City."

krazeeboi, I love your explanation. That is what I would have done too, but then I began thinking more in terms of economy. Atlanta is "king" of the Southeast. Charlotte is "queen" of the Southeast. :)

If we're looking at economy and population, the obvious contenders would only be Atlanta, Miami, Houston, and Dallas, IMO. Atlanta's case is pretty obvious. Miami's amount of foreign investment is staggering; downtown Miami has the largest concentration of international banks in the country. The Houston area only trails NYC in the number of F500 HQ's. The DFW metroplex is home to over 10,000 corporate headquarters making it home to the largest corporate headquarters concentration in the United States.

I agree. This is a rather juvenile "discussion." Just a reminder to me that they are actually teaching basic computer science to kindergarteners now. Appears the South may be ahead of the curve "in the classroom."

ATL-----------King

&

Queen Charlotte

Our cities relationship will become the Southern version of the NYC/Boston relationship in 20+years. Are you ready for a Megalopolis ?!

I-85's ever reaching arm will have the King and Queen ruling together in no time :)

(BTW, this is a kind of silly poll :lol: but what the heck, right??)

Only on Urbanplanet you get a poll like this :D

Exactly what I was thinking. Or at least with the results you have.
