Well, I am from Baltimore which I truely love but the rules say no to where you are from so I will go with:
Large City: Boston-great transit, very walkable, great architecture, loved taking the train to Revere Beach to go swimming.
Medium City: I would go with Madison, Wisconsin. Again, nice lakes, fairly decent transit for it's size. Clean.
Small City: Traverse City, Michigan-close to the water, clean. Lots of outdoor stuff to do.
(I am focused on water today because it is so freakin hot here.)

I have several cities to mark down in no order at all.
1. Louisville, KY. I feel some sort of connection to the town because I have spent some summers there when I was younger (some family moved there from Cincy).
2. Orlando,FL. During my school breaks I would spend time down there visiting family and living how the locals live. Oh yeah, you got to love a place where you don't need to think about the winter, just pack a hoody for the night.
3. Brooklyn, NY. When my family and I went to visit friend up there I was left with a very good impression of the borough. I didn't expect it but coming out of a mall there some locals started engaging in small talk with us. I like all that I have listed.

Miami = love the weather and the latin spice. its like the entire caribbean converged in one city.
LA = go cross country quit a bit to see family in orange county and we always end up going out in LA. cool city, but you guys need to smoke more
SF = haight street, music, architecture, wine country
Burlington/Brattleboro = coolest cities in america (well haven't seen seattle/both portlands/austin) and in a beautiful backdrop

based on where i've been. Chicago may have been on the list too but all i saw was O'Hare. decent airport & NO

I'd vote for St. Louis because of great weather, lower taxes and a really nice city all together!

Brooklyn is just a burrow of New York. Like Chelsea or Greenwhich Village. So you the only way you'd like Brooklyn is if you Liked the ENTIRE NYC!

well chelsea & the w village are a part of manhattan. manhattan isn't brooklyn. nothing against bk...

yes its all new york, but bk/queens have highrise apts and warehouses, stripmalls, etc.....doesn't look like manhattan...but it probably will in 20 yrs

I don't know if you did this intentionally or not, but calling Brooklyn a "burrow of New York" is either really funny or really insulting.

burrow: a hole or tunnel in the ground made by a rabbit, fox, or similar animal for habitation and refuge.

borough: one of the five administrative divisions of New York City.

yea i hate when people not from Manhattan pretend like the other boroughs are like it. they try to claim the "whole" nyc like the one you see on tv , such as time square, when in fact they arent as happening/fun as THE CITY
