This has got to be a joke! First of all, Detroit is about 90% black, so I'm not sure where the diversity is coming from. Secondly, I've only ever seen NYC, CHI, and DC beat out Boston in architecture, I mean seriously...

Atlanta is the only city on that list I would want to live in.

Very close between Minneapolis and Boston. I voted Boston. The other 3 aren't really even on my radar.

Boston definitely. A nice, clean city that almost feels like a small town. Better mass transit than the other choices too.

I'm lucky enough to already reside in the best place listed in this STRANGE comparison of cities.

Besides MSP, the other places aren't really on my radar either.

As much as I like the Braves, Boston is a much nicer city than Atlanta. They should have stayed in Boston lol.

^Much nicer in your opinion - you couldn't pay me to live there (again, my OPINION).

And the Braves left Boston before most of us were born. Don't you mean Milwaukee?

Well, I knew as soon as Atlanta took the lead in this poll that the Usual Suspects would trot out their typical display of Up North Urban Elitism.
