I'm sure that every American city has at least some good qualities. I wouldn't expect anything less. You are blessed when you're in one of the richest countries in the world.

BTW, Pittsburgh is actually amazing - in a quiet kind of way.

I would vote Dallas. People who do not travel there are full of negative stereotypes but Dallas has unique buildings, incredible night skyline (must see in person) especially from a distance, the northern suburbs are gorgeous (clean, well-manicured, lots to do), affordability is top-notch, and although the summers are hot, weather is subjective. Dallas, yes it may not be LA or NYC but their economy is arguably much stronger than the vast majority of cities in the United States. Not the city itself, but as far as lifestyle, I would compare it to Los Angeles, very elegant structures, abundance of exotic cars, fantastic shopping scene. Dallas is also second to only NYC for most development, as it continues to grow at a fast rate and will assuredly become compact and denser. However, if you want crazy nightlife, endless foot traffic, and a northeast feel, stray away from Dallas.
