Other similar nicknames, just off the top of my head, include:
- Underwear Capital of the World, given to Knoxville, TN for its former prominence in textiles
- Porkopolis, given to Cincinnati, OH for its pork industry dominance
- Steel City is still a popular nickname for Pittsburgh, PA, but with the recent closing of several steel mills pointing to a city in transition, perhaps this nickname will eventually go the way of these other more obscure monikers
Can you think of any other ones?

Oh, btw, if any of you nerds want to whip out your stylebooks and take me to task over the capitalization of hyphenated words in titles, give me your best shot.
