Explanation: You can't really say "ma ville est Birmingham" (the exact translation of My town is B...). It simply doesn't sound French. J'habite B. means i live in the town of Birmingham but depending on what the previous or next sentence is or what you want to say you can replace "j'habite" by almost anything.
Give us more context and we'll find the approriate phrasing.
