I think some people look at statistics and automatically mark a city off without doing any kind of research.

I agree and you can not judge a city by just driving through.

Most "cities" in South Florida are ugly with the exception of certain areas of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach Florida and Singer Island. Everything is so run down and old. Yuck!

Never travel to Europe. You would be horrified by all of the "old" structures.

I'm a New York City native, so I like older structures, but the ones down here are not well maintained at all...it really looks like a Third World Country, anyone who says different is LIE-ING!

It's all just a matter of opinion and taste.

There are alot of big cities that I don't like and the reason has nothing to do with what they look like.
I don't like Houston or any city south of it because of the humidity.

Did I misspell something?

I don't mean to be rude and I know you've never step foot into New York, but San Antonio is hideous and you shouldn't really be arguing with a world traveler as myself because as far as I'm concerned, it would take you years of studying and a trip out of Texas for you to ever attain 1/3rd of my taste level.

San Antonio looks like an abandoned third-word cesspool in comparison to beautiful cities like New York, Paris, and London (which I'm positive you've never been to any) so please, you shouldn't really question my list as it is very accurate.

You clearly must be void of any taste for aesthetics if you think San Antonio (of all places) is anywhere as beautiful, or should be said in the same sentence as the word beautiful and New York.
