I found a couple of websites with nicknames for cities around the world. For example, Boston is Beantown and both Seattle and Wichita, Kansas are the Emerald City. Supposedly Montreal is the City of Saints but I hadn't heard that one. I guess it refers to the role of the church in its history. Toronto is Toronto the good! This refers to the old puritanical liquor licensing laws. Now it is used satirically. It is also called Hogtown, Muddy York, Hollywood of the North, the Queen City and T. O. I use T.O. all the time. Does your city have a nickname?
