OK, I looked at all the profiles and 20 of them, yes 20, have made 0 posts!!! I think we can say that this thread is not legitimate and does not truly reflect the members of this forum. Even though I voted for LA, I think it is sad that someone (likely an Angelino) would go to the length of doing this, making their great city look so pathetic. It is totally fine if the members of this forum think NYC is more influential. It is their opinions and I find it interesting to read and you should respect them. As a Southern California resident, while Los Angeles may be more influential in my life, it is interesting to see how cities in other regions of the country find certain cities to have a greater influence in their life and the country. Most Angelinos would be ashamed of something as pathetic like this. When others say they don't like LA, most Angelinos respect that it isn't for everyone and go on enjoying their lives. They don't feel like they need to prove themselves to America by winning city-data posts. Its a real shame that an organized thread like this with all the great options has been tainted.

I just think it's ridiculous that C-D does screen registration more. I was shocked to find out that they don't use e-mail verification.

Ummm, as a new college resident in NYC I digress. Regardless of you and your other reincarnations rigging the poll, I know that I live in the largest, greatest and most influential city in this country. Go ahead, create more usernames and add 100 more votes to Los Angeles; that doesn't change anything, because you skewing the results of this poll with your aliases will only further prove my argument that some of you Los Angeles posters seem very desperate and are obviously dying for acceptance.





Well, these results sure are very different from...

http://www.city-data.com/forum/gener...-new-york.html

I can't believe anyone would go out of their way to rig a little online poll!! Pathetic!!
Maybe your just jealous by the fact that maybe others favor L.A. over NYC? Seriously,NYC can't win everything and not everyone thinks it's the best city ever! If you honestly thing that; get out more....please.

Who are you and where have you been? I should get out more? Um, I've been to New York (of course), Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Atlanta, DC, Miami, San Fransisco, San Diego, Houston, Dallas, Las Vegas, London, Paris, Madrid, Cape Town, Zurich, Prague, Berlin, Milan, Rome, Barcelona and Amsterdam and small towns in between. Get out more???!!

Is NYC the best city in the United States of America? Yes.

Best city in the world? Well, that's debatable.

I haven't been to Hong Kong or Sydney but I've been out A LOT. To me, as cliché as it sounds, the best cities in the world are New York, Paris and Tokyo. In the United States, I like New York, Chicago, San Fransisco.

By the way you act; I wouldn't be able to tell.

I picked Houston {I was biased} But, I seriously think LA has had the greatest influence on the U.S.A. IF we were speaking as of now, Atlanta would have more influence on the US than NYC.

Best city is very different than influential. This isn't about what is best. San Francisco for example often tops the lists of one of the best cities to live in America, yet I wouldn't call it the most influential. Influential does not mean best and best does not mean influential.
