Not sure of the metrics used, but list seems fairly legit, especially the top 3. Thoughts?

10. NYC
9. Seattle
8. Kansas City
7. Baltimore
6. San Francisco
5. Albuquerque
4. Providence
3. Portland, OR
2. Austin
1. New Orleans

They must have never been to Houston. Love it or hate it, that's one quirky city.

It's not a Travel and Leisure poll if Providence RI isn't in the top 5.

Providence named America’s Favorite City by Travel & Leisure Magazine | wpri.com

GoLocalProv | NEW: Providence Named Top Food City 2012 By Travel + Leisure

Providence 1#: America's Best Burger Cities 2012 | Travel + Leisure

Providence #2, ahead of NYC: Travel + Leisure Ranks America's Best Pizza Cities | Serious Eats

Providence could make a "top 5 West coast cities" poll.

I agree with the list, minus Austin. Its not quirky. In fact, it tries to be quirky, and that makes it goofy instead. I think Santa Fe is more quirky than Austin.

This is not the only list where Providence rates higher than NYC. They put NYC below Providence on every list. Even gay bar scene...
