New York City does get hot and humid in the summer. It can go above 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Centigrade). People head to Coney Island Beach. However, in the wintertime, you can get blizzards.

That’s part of the 4-season climate.

London suits it's climate, as immortalised in numerous books such as those of Charles Dickens.

Poor Bob Cratchit trying to stay warm in the employment of Mr Scrooge and the cold chill of winter and Snow or the foggy East End streets of Jack the Ripper, Sherlock Holmes, Sweeney Todd or Bill Sikes and Bullseye trying to evade the law through the old warehouses and docks of misty Victorian London.

London can get snow in winter or a heat wave in the summer it just depends on the year.

New York's stiffling summer heat also suits it, and evokes images of water hydrants being turned in to sprinklers and children playng in the streets or Monroe standing on a subway grate as her white dress is blown upwards by a passing train or Travis Bickle in a sweltering 1970's NYC summer and his famous quote "Someday a real rain will come and wipe this scum off the streets".

London, Paris and NYC are all bustling with Christmas shoppers in December and each city is seasonally cold.

La Paz, Bolivia is one. Most people imagine Latin American or South American cities to have a tropical or subtropical climate (which is true of all of the other major Bolivian cities) but La Paz has a mild mountain climate that gives it what most of us would call mid-spring weather year round, with average highs around 15C in every month.

Venezia has quite cooler climate when you just think it’s Italy and the way media/literature portrays them. To me, they would fit more naturally with similar climates to Genova or Barcelona.

That's interesting. I've never had that image of Paris.


I think of people mostly dressed in black for cool-ish weather...

Another thing... I know it's just my own ignorance, but when I think of anywhere in Asia, I generally think of something like this year round:

I feel Melbourne, Auckland, San Francisco and Concepcion should be warmer and dryer.

I agree with Auckland and Concepcion but Melbourne is decently warm in the summer.
