1. City girl here. Born in St. Louis, grew up in Houston. Since marriage, we’ve lived in Nashville and Chattanooga. This is a just-right sized city.


  2. My home town is a city in its own right, but it’s only thirty-five miles from New York City. That made us a suburb, a commuter town for workers who couldn’t afford Greenwich — and Greenwich really wants to be its own state anyhow.


  3. I grew up in San Francisco and have always been a city girl, though I have grown accustomed to living in a 60,000 person town after nearly 40 years.


  4. I grew up between two “cities”, each about 20,000 people in rural Wisconsin. I had neighbors, but no sidewalks or streetlights. I rode my bike by myself over 2 miles to my best friend’s house and it wasn’t considered very far, and went fishing in the creek behind my house on my own. It was definitely country living.


  5. I grew up on a small, family dairy farm in the middle of the country, in the middle of the 20th Century, a way of life rapidly disappearing from the American landscape.My home town was Preston, Iowa, a community of 1,000 people near the Mississippi River. I wrote a memoir – Growing Up Country: Memories of an Iowa Farm Girl – is based on my experiences as a 10-12 year old.
