Silly question for those of you who live in big cities (IN the cities, not the burbs)

For people who live in places like LA, Chicago, NY..... do you have mosquitoes?  I was talking to  my husband earlier about all the damn mosquitoes we have and got to wondering... are there magical places without the rotten things??

That is so surprising to me, I figured they'd have nowhere to nest with the lack of grass and all.... neat to know, though, thanks!  Ugh about the West Nile... we get that here, a lot, too... North Dakota.

they nest in the stagnant filthy water in the allies.  NYC gets sprayed 2x a year for them
