American cities? None. America has abondoned most of her cities and all that's left in them after 6 PM is the very rich and the very poor. Tragedy.

Ahh. Typical European Snobbery at it's finest.

Let's look at one of your "wonderful and sofisticated" Cities
Tallinn

What a wonderful city.......NOT
Vs.
Detroit

At least Detroit looks like more than three people live there


If your going to pick on America, at least use nice cities.

All I try to do is have fun debate over which cities people like, and some uneducated moron has to come and ruin it. ''sigh''

Wow, that's a great point. It's sadly very true. NYC is the only last-remaining holdout for a great diverse population of rich, poor, and in-between. Sadly, Manhattan is becoming a playground for the SUPER wealthy and none other. In 25 years, I hate to see the poor being pushed out even more.

I'm a Texan so I voted for Dallas, Houston and Austin (well if I could have picked three). And yes, I have been to almost all the other cities on the list.

Your example above is showing a city skyline comparison and nothing else. That's not the standard bar to judge a city. Many cities in the US have great skylines, but at street level where people actually live and work on a daily basis, is dead. I agree with azoria having been to many European cities--they thrive compared to the US cities.
Americans would rather live in suburbs with grassy lawns and 3,000 sq ft of living space with garages, than live in lively inner-cities. That's a fact here in 2008 in the US. It's a culture here in America, and it probably won't be changing soon unless a major culture/attitude occurs over a couple of generations.

Typical Texan homerism, we wouldn't expect anything less

My favorite international cities were not listed, but of those listed, San Francisco, New York and LA. Otherwise, Prague and Zurich would be at the top.
