in what respect-this seems to be hugely a matter of opinion.

In what sense? I mean what lines are we talking about when comparing American cities vs the ones in the East?

Yeah, this is a very broad topic. I'll try to offer a little contribution though.

In general, I feel European and some select East Asian cities (mostly in Japan) better integrate public transportation into their cities, and they are also far more pedestrian and bike-friendly. I also feel that a good number of cities in Europe and the Middle East preserve their history more than those cities in the U.S. They tend to build up on what they have rather than tear it down and putting something in it's place as seems to be the trend in the U.S., Latin America, Japan, Dubai, etc.

It's, " Do cities in Japan, China, etc., out-perform American cities in various criteria that can be utilized for sessions of, sometimes, heated discussion? " Beijing, Shanghai and Tokyo come to mind. All are ancient in ways we'll never understand. Shanghai has always been rather large, Beijing is what I would just consider a communist capital. Still, it's steeped in history and culture, of course, but Tokyo is the world's one true city-state. Such hugh influence over it's region and, with 35 mil by 2018, that's hard to ignore. Please be more specific, and realize, generally, if you're gonna move out of the states, you might be screaming to get back in. This is still where it's at.
