I know exactly how you feel... I just got back from NYC a couple days ago, I flew into the city but rode back home. It is like night and days difference seeing NYC then driving through Cleveland, Toledo, and Detroit.

Top "yes" cities so far:

SF
NYC
Seattle
Chicago
LA
Portland


Top "No" cities

Phoenix
Detroit
DFW
Houston
NYC

NYC most divisive so far.
Many votes had to be disqualified for not following rules (Cities in other countries, states or sectors instead of cities, cities under specified population, etc.)

Phoenix is most hated city and San Francisco most loved, can't say that is a surprise at all.

Two of the fastest growing cities (DFW and Houston) received large amount of "no" votes

Chicago, Detroit, Buffalo, Flint, Rochester

Though these cities can be mostly decrepit, their gem neighborhoods shine all the brighter. Besides which I love the architecture and exploring abandoned buildings.

It is really your neighborhood which effects your quality of life, not your city.

Chicago is the Deluxe Marriott with the Union Oyster House as its side restaurant...

Baltimore is the Motel 6 with an attached McDonald's....they are PRAYING for a Golden Corral..
