    The real answer is both, but that wasn't an option. We moved a lot when I was a kid.

    Yup, I was born in one of those stereotypical "hicksville" towns. ;) I love it, though. It's a really beautiful spot...

    i cant really say i grew up in a town at all. i grew up in a pretty big trailer park where it took you between 15-20 minutes to get to the bus stop depending how far where you lived. luckily i lived up front. and it would take you between 10-30 minutes to walk up to the gas station. so yeah i grew up in a park surrounded by a few stores and a car garage.

    too bad there's not a both button. The first 8 yrs of my life were spent in a very small town in the midwest. The next 8 yrs were in LA.

    Grew up in the small town called "Kannapolis", so called mainly because of Cannon Mills, which made Cannon towels and other products. Kannapolis means "The City of Looms"

    It was a good town, had the hugh mill right at the downtown area, had a very nice, old YMCA right there too, but in the maybe late 80's media mogul Rupert Murdoch came by, bought Cannon Mills, tore it down, leaving thousands of hard working people with out work, most of which had worked there all their working life.

    Tore down our wonderful YMCA, which had a library a big reading area in it, hugh indoor pool, Racket Ball & Hand Ball courts, big Basket ball courts & upper surrounding running lane above the court, big Weights area, Duck Pin bowling lanes, large pool table area with about ten pool tables, and much more. It was a beautiful stone and brick building. In the summer times, it didn't even need air conditioning. They just opened the large windows and the air came in and just cooled down

    That dirty scum of the earth bast@rd just came into the town and destroyed it and now it is virtually a ghost town as for all the businesses and life that was there.

    Now, where the Mill stood, there is a new medical research facility that I'm sure is benifting him and going to be a big asset only to big pharmacy.

    Grew up there, loved the many grand movie theaters that where down town, which only one stands today. Had great times and memories of childhood and in my teenage years there.

    To me though, that home is gone now and I've been away from there for many years.

    Our home town had a population of 5,000 in 1950 and a population of 16,000 in 1960. Everyone knew everyone else's business. The jewelry store downtown was robbed while the old cop was sleeping in the squad car on Main Street.
    Now it's one big, nasty traffice jam packed full of fast food joints. There used to be your four basic churches. Now there is a church on every corner but everyone is always getting arrested.

    I think that a city of 4.1 million people constitutes as a large town...

    My childhood was in the suburbs but we moved into the inner city when I was 13.

    Podunk, we've got a college and the rail road and that the only reason why we're here now, started out because of fort that was built to keep the outlaws in check and the local population complacent
