Congratulations, Boston! I wish they'd do smaller cities sometime. I'd love to see where Scranton would rank (and don't say just below Gary, either!) LOL!

click on view more results....


the result of the finals is funny....total ballot stuffing. I say that cuz I love San Fran...and it should have been much closer.

Though I didn't even know this vote was going on until someone posted this link today in the Boston forum.....

For me, New York and Boston are really too different to compare. New York is one of the Mecca’s of the Western World. I can’t say I love The Big Apple but I wouldn’t want to try and compete with it outside of sports and perhaps charm.

If you visit Boston, go anytime between late April to early October or around Christmas or Thanksgiving. You will get MUCH cheaper deals on everything outside of that range but the city should be visited for the first time in season…

Gee, I wonder who was voting in that poll....

Finalists: Boston and San Francisco, the two most extremely liberal cities in the country.......
