The UWS is by far my favorite neighborhood. I've always said if I had millions, I'd buy a penthouse with panoramic views on Central Park West.

Rittenhouse Square in Philly is the gold standard for an ideal city neighborhood. It's as close to perfection as a neighborhood can get according to Walkscore.

Never been to Pasadena, Denver or Columbus, but the others are all spot on. But I do wonder how nowhere in Seattle, Philly, or DC made the list.

In before that NOLA female comes in and blasts the author for expressing a positive opinion of Hyde Park, or any Chicago neighborhood!

I disagree with putting Denver, Pasadena, and Columbus on this list. Philly, Chicago, and Seattle are absent, but Denver and boring suburban Pasadena is on it? Yeah... no.

I lived in the middle of Capitol Hill Denver (13th and Washington) from 2010 to 2013, and while I loved my time there and liked the street cred of the hood, I probably wouldn't have included it in a list of beautiful hoods. While there's some interesting architecture and some of the heavier tree cover in the city, it's not really quaint and charming. In fact it could get a little shady and somewhat dangerous, especially the closer you got to Colfax.

Anyway, I'm surprised that a Denver neighborhood made the list over places in Philly and DC. And to be honest, Seattle's Capitol Hill is a much prettier neighborhood. And I'm not sure how DC and Philly were left off the list altogether....

Eh, like any "Top 10" lists, there will always be a debate about methodology. This is especially true for measuring something like "most beautiful."

That's not to say these aren't legitimately beautiful neighborhoods, because I'd agree that many of them are gorgeous, but the list is definitely far from comprehensive, and the idea of a ranking seems silly.
