The three qualifications:
  • population
  • economy
  • culture

There must be a lot of people (a la NYC, LA, Chicago), must be an important business center (headquarters and exchanges), and must have cultural activities (art museums etc.). Then you will see the external manifestations of the great city like tall skyscrapers, luxury stores, busy airport, etc.

I love cities with outgoing, friendly attitudes.

I know that can be an oxymoron, but I've heard rumours of other international cities where residents are much more relaxed, active and friendly than Toronto. Places like Melbourne, Australia former classmates have told me about.
