On visits to one city on particular. I am impressed with how clean especially its downtown is and some neighborhoods I visited. Going again in June. Expect the same. I won't name it now.

Some cities you expect as newer cities being clean. Some as older more gritty. Though I do not find gritty a excuse for debris on streets or sidewalks or grime. Some use the term in a excuse and allowance?

Seems only NYC in Manhattan. Does it seem to not matter. Because after all, it's New York. So we can leave it out. No other city would get away with bags of garbage on the street long before pick-up it seems.

Whether as a tourist or visiting family, or for work and business? What Large City's downtown? Stood out to you in being cleaner then expected and that stood out?

Also if other aspects did and why? In your comments and some features or attractions that impressed and surpassed expectations?

You can vote and add another city in your post that is not listed that impressed you also. Any added impressions of a city feel welcome to add in your posting.

I've been to every city on this list. The cleanest from my observations of all cities I've been to are (in no particular order) Boston, Charlotte, and Denver.

Downtown Boston is not clean. You may have been in the Back Bay and thought you were downtown.

Nope. My wife was raised there and we've been there numerous times (will be visiting in 3.5 weeks). We knew where we were, lol. It's clean and well-kept. I can only go by my observations. Sorry! lol........Would like to add Minneapolis to my list of Boston, Charlotte, and Denver. I'd forgot about them. I know there are other cities that have nice, clean downtown's, but these especially come to mind for me.

can't vote for Minneapolis as it wouldn't be a "visit", but I have always been impressed during my visits to DT Chicago as to how clean the city was and the activity by the city workers to clean-up in the middle of the night.

Having lived in both cities, in the last decade, I assure you downtown Chicago is cleaner than downtown Boston.
