I love intimidation from a city's size perspective, personally. It's a great surprise when cities turn out to be larger and more monstrous feeling than you had expected. Also it's a world of let down (to me) when they come out smaller than expected. So for me, big big positive. Probably one of the things I look for most in a place when I'm there.

So far I've reacted positively to New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Toronto (not in order) for places I've seen in North America so far. Among the large cities, everywhere else I've been sort of disappointed or met the expectation. One place where I've reacted to it's (lack of) size negatively is Boston. Amazing city but why does it have to end so fast?
