Any major Canadian city, but across the "pond", London feels like NYC or San Francisco.

Toronto

A lot of movies are shot there, usually standing in for either NYC or Chicago.

Also Vancouver shot movies pretending to be Seattle or Portland too.

Mexico City should be on the list. It's sprawling and poorly planned just like all American cities.

It has to be one of the Canadian or Australian cities... Which one is pretty debatable!

American cities poorly planned? While American cities arguably are not as good in this regard as some other developed Western nations, there are many cities around the world that'd beat American cities when it comes to being "poorly planned"! I should know, as I live in one!

What comes to my mind when one talk about cities in USA is a central area with very tall skyscrapers and most of the jobs and commerce is centered, surrounded by a lot of residential areas with geometrically planned streets and extensive green lawns in front of the houses. In this sense, only other cities of the "anglosphere" fall in these criteria, I think. No city in Europe which I visited have these urbanistic features.
