Oh, well architecturally, New York is far more stunning. I live in the city and I love architecture. I love the amazing urban streetscpe. I love the vibrancy. I love the city's supremacy.

And on a side note, I think Cape Town South Africa is one of the most naturally stunning places I've ever set foot in, but I sure as hell do not want to live there.

To anyone with a pulse, there is far more to life than which place has better mountains. Mountains are a complete waste of my time. Maybe when I'm 90 years old I'll move strictly on a "cleaner natural scenery"....then perhaps I'll move to Bermuda or the Dalmatian Islands in Croatia. Coming from someone as well traveled and sophisticated as me, let me tell you -- Washington/Seattle is a dump compared the two.

In the meantime, I am everything New York City stands for; freedom, success, achievement and life. It fits me perfectly (and the many other high achievers in life with high tastes who call New York home ).

Why do you insist on selling your city to people who just came into the poll to offer their opinion? NYC is not for everyone and you're personality/mindset doesn't reflect everyone else's. The sooner you realize that the better.

I want to visit Seattle sometime soon. Is it true it's like a smaller version of San Francisco? My husband and I are thinking about retiring to the west coast someday, but he doesn't want SF because of the earthquakes. Seattle is definitely a top choice. But who knows, our minds may change once we have kids. Retirement is a long way away anyway, lol.

You're right...I'd say Tribeca is one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in the country. It's not for everyone, but tons of people would love to live there.

It is the defensiveness of the native New Yorker coming out in them.

Because it's convenient to the point you're trying to make?

I moved out East from the West and hate it. Can't wait to move back West as a matter of fact.
