Boston, MA
Lowell, MA
Washington DC
Seattle, WA
Chicago, IL
St. Louis, MO
DFW, TX
Phoenix, AZ
Jacksonville, FL
Cocoa, FL
Savannah, GA

NYC in general does not stink. Now, Chinese areas like 86th St in Brooklyn, you can smell before you see cuz' of their nastyas- versions of supermarkets.

Cocoa, Savannah, and St. Louis. Are. Sh-t. Holes.

Also, Savannah really does stink everywhere, it's like right in the middle of a putrid swamp and it's got paper-mill smell that adds to it.

Newark has a few sections that visually could be confused with Syrian news footage...

Outside of Manhattan, not too bad. It really depends on the direction of the wind and other atmospheric factors.

Tokyo much less diverse, much easier to traverse due to public transpo. Much much much much safer than NYC. But NYC has everything as far as food and culture.

Tokyo is a nightmare? It's much cleaner, more organized, more developed, more technologically advanced, zero crime, people are more formal and better dressed etc. The Bronx, Brownsville, high crime, graffiti, noise, smell, poverty, garbage, homelessness etc of NYC is much more of a nightmare compared to Tokyo. You sound like you don't travel much or have friends from other cultures and just want to stay at home and watch American sports and eat KFC.

I don't really care about immersing myself in different cultures. I'm not usually attracted to Asian women. I am much more of a nature person. I would rather go to Nepal than to Shanghai. I can see how these places might appeal to some people, I guess if I am going to go to a megalopolis I'd rather go to NYC, L.A., London, Paris or Rio.
You sound really boring.

I've lived in NYC all my life and it's not remotely as big as Tokyo. I honestly feel a sense of relief returning to NYC from Tokyo because Tokyo is just much faster paced, more overwhelming and vastly bigger. Walking from 59th street to battery park could be done and wouldn't be a major feat.

Try walking from Shibuya to Nippori - that is more than twice the distance of 59th street to battery park and it is all overwhelmingly dense and lit up like times square all over the place during that journey.
