This is one of those sites probably everybody knows about but me. I just discovered The City Stories Project, which lists stories, duh, by city: San Francisco, Seattle, Amsterdam. The creator says, "It's somewhere in between a personal journal and a city guide. It's a series of personal stories where the city itself becomes a character in your story....This project is about telling your own personal true stories of life in your city."
You can still start your own, if your city, like mine, isn't yet listed.
