I think Berlin is lower on the list than it should be. It's the capitol of Germany, is a cosmopolitan city and is a regional powerhouse. IMO it should be the highest ranked city in Germany. It strikes me as oddly as Washington DC being ranked the mid to lower tiered US cities.

Don't forget that Chicago has U of Illinois at Chicago which has Bill Ayers as a professor I agree with you Boston is the best city in the US for colleges.

How ignorant. The University of Chicago has more Nobel Peace prize winners than 99% of the countries on Earth. Certainly more than any Boston university...plus DePaul actually had the President of Lithuania graduate from their school in 2002. I was at the ceremony at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL.

For example, just the latest Nobel win for the University of Chicago. this one for this year, 2008:

Yoichiro Nambu of Enrico Fermi Institute, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA won half of the prize for the discovery of the mechanism of spontaneous broken symmetry in subatomic physics.

I stand corrected. I glossed over U of C at number 8.

Chicago Laureates 84
Boston Laureates 127
