Bringing an aspect of another city to your city

This question comes from the Daily Prompt at The Daily Post @ WordPress

If you could clone one element from another city you’ve visited — a building, a cultural institution, a common street food, etc. — and bring it back to your own hometown, what would it be?


  1. I think Davis has more ethnic food eateries than good ol’ Amurrican food eateries, actually. I wouldn’t mind having food stands selling chocolate croissants around town, like I saw in Paris. It would also be nice having the ocean closer, but since that would involve flooding 80 miles of towns, probably not.


  2. So many things – Efficient subways of Tokyo, delicious street side food of Paris, Dog-friendly cafes of Munich, random street concerts of Salvador, an NFL hockey team like Toronto


  3. There are bits and pieces of every place I’ve been. The welcome to tourists that I found in Portland, Oregon, comes to mind. (Even while shepherding a sixty-five-year-old toddler.) The museums of London are beautiful. The history of Boston is special. Ethnic food all over — always. I still miss Manhattan, crowded, often dirty, always exciting.

    But I am tied to New Haven and may never be able to leave (not upright, anyhow 8-) ). There is good theater here, an amazing variety of ethnicities (restaurants included), museums… Suburbs are better places to bring up children, but I shall be glad to get back into a city.
