Totally agree on both, being a Mississippi native who enjoys living where he is.

The ones that I have the strongest opinions on are the ones I've (almost all) been to.

Los angeles is way too modernist, and auto-centric. These matter much more than you'd think.

Los Angeles has way more historic (pre-1945) housing stock than Austin and San Antonio and is less car-dependent. I mean, you can't be serious to place those cities in the same tier. Sorry, LA is definitely ahead. Have you been to DT Austin lately? Lots of shiny new apartments. Not a very walkable or transit oriented city by any means. A tiny sliver of Downtown DOES NOT make a walkable city.

Dallas is also less car dependent than Austin & SA. I'm not going to say DART is amazing, but it blows away anything that Austin or SA has (whatever that would be). Austin does not have the amount of older, pre-1945 homes and buildings that Dallas has. This is not an opinion, it is a FACT. I'm not exactly sure when comparing San Antonio. I believe it has the most historically intact Downtown of any Texas city, but outside of Downtown, it could be a wash.

Name every neighborhood in Dallas you've been to. Have you used its public transit system? Have you used its trolley system? Was it in 2002 or 2015? If it's a one time visit to Downtown and a drive around some obscure suburb, then no you haven't experienced it.

As much as I enjoy the rural feel. NYC is Easily the greatest city in the U.S. It's one of the few large cities that i'd consider living in.

You're absolutely right! But, Keihanshin has a metro of 19 million in Japan. And, comparing the Japanese currency (Yen) to the American dollar is a hard task. 10 thousand yen won't get you much, but 10 thousand dollars can get you a lot. Ever since the 1980's the Japanese economy has been somewhat stagnate. Tokyo really does have the economical edge over NYC. Tokyo has so many growing new and old technology/electronics companies it's mind-boggling.

New York is the greatest American city. Chicago is the second city.

America’s Cities Are Running Out of Room Everyone wants to live downtown, but only the rich can afford it. And it’s getting worse.
