HALIFAX – What makes a city great?
Is it a beautiful skyline? A rich cultural heritage? Maybe it’s an exciting nightlife.
These are all possibilities of course, but I personally think that when it comes right down to it, the thing that makes a city great is its nickname.
When I think about it, all of my personal favourite cities have one: New York is the Big Apple, London is the Big Smoke, Chicago is the Windy City, Vancouver is the City of Glass, Hamilton is the Hammer, even Toronto is Hogtown.
I Halifax is another awesome city, and it too deserves its own awesome nickname.
On that note I’d like to announce the Spacing Atlantic Halifax nick name contest.
Post your suggestions down below and we’ll pick the best ones and put it to a vote in a few weeks.
(Oh yeah, Hali, and The Fax do not count. Sorry folks, but they just don’t cut it.)
Here are some suggestions to get the ball rolling:
2. The Big Salty (because it’s near the ocean)
3. The beast of the East
4. Uncle Cornwallis’s
