Do live in Gastown, Queen City or Tijuana North?
That’s Vancouver, Toronto and Windsor!

Maybe you’re SWAPPING to:
The Square Mile (London, UK)?
Black Pool (Dublin, Ireland)?
The City of Sails (Auckland, NZ)?
Beantown (Boston, Mass, US)?

Most major cities have nicknames as a way for locals to have the inside knowledge of where they live. Now you’ll be in the know when you’re in Edinburgh and people start mentioning “Athens of the North”!
