Agree with you cityboi

Overrated is NYC

Underrated is Philly and also LA

NYC has much to offer, but it is not so far and away better than about 10 other cities in its diversity and offerings as several fanatics on CD think

I have seen alot of hate for LA on this site, mostly by eastcoasters for some reason. Have no idea why either

Philly is kind of the forgotten city on here, but is a great city

Nope I lived in Philly almost my whole life! Now I live in NYC. Best decision I ever made. I have never been happier. Oh and I used to kind of dislike NYC for some reason. Maybe because I was influence by many Philadelphians like you. LOL.

NYC is not overrated. It is one of only 4 Alpha cities in the world. It is easily the top city in the US. It seems that there are posters that enjoy beating New York down for some reason.

Underrated:
Pittsburgh
Milwaukee
Cincinnati

Overrated
Austin Tx
Denver
Phoenix(not on City-Data but in general)

I know, an alpha city can't be overrated.

L.A is the most overrated city on the planet by far.

I've heard people say S.F is overrated but I don't think so
