Exactly. I love how Chicago always gets written off because "its expensive and cold." It doesn't get THAT much colder than NY,Boston, etc.... And the cost of living is lower than that of NY and LA.

I say Chicago, with Dallas coming in 2nd. I really don't see why anyone other than an actor/director/writer would live in that crime-ridden toxic wasteland.

Atlanta is in the south so I can't vote for the ATL as I only live in real cities.

LA has been doing well these past few years with the downtown quality of life and their transit system but I think it's the only city on the west coast giving us a bad reputation. Maybe in another 20 years I will consider LA but for now - I will pass.

Dallas is in the south and I only live in real cities.

Seattle and Chicago are the two cities I like a lot and have spent a lot of time in both cities. Outside of NY, I think Chicago and Seattle are the 2 top cities for skyline and city vibes (as well as SF) but at the end of the day I wasn't comfortale being labeled a midwesterner so even though I like Chicago, I find the surrounding areas to be behind their respective competitors and find too much midwest influence even in the suburbs of Chicago (obesity/fast food chains/car culture).

Seattle wins this poll as it blends the qualities I like about Boston (High IQ's, smartmoney, Patents and R&D) and Chicago (skyline) but without all of the slummy old parts of Chicago/Boston that turn me off, nor the machine politics.

Seattle is a pretty place but in my opinion is not a "real city". Being from the Boston area Seattle does not compare at all with Boston (let alone many other East Coast cities) when one speaks of an urban place or city. But like I said, Seattle is a very nice place.

Yeah right!! That's what I use to think until I moved to Seattle. After living in 3 of the 5 cities Seattle would definately be my 1st choice. Not only is it a 'real city', its a city full of all the big city amenities, plus unsurpassed, breathtaking natural beauty. Now when travel to those other cities for business like Atlanta, Chicago or Dallas, Seattle seems to have spoiled me.

Why doesn't someone make a poll on how many polls is too many polls? Then again maybe we should have a separate forum dedicated only to polls.

Ignorant provincialism is an ugly thing, and you are making a great city look bad with all of these posts all over the forum.

I find it hard to believe you have ever been outside of King County in your life.
