In North America only NYC is a global city.

If you include Mexico, Mexico city blows anything off the water.

The rest are glorified.

Toronto is on the level of Chicago, Los Angeles is hardly a city, more like a giant suburb.

Montreal is ok, but I wouldnt say its a NYC

Houston.... lets put it this way.... an eternity in Houston would make hell look like a very promising place.

I don’t think German opera is tedious at all…

There's something about NYC as you said that seems to be more on par with the cities in Europe like Berlin than with American cities. I remember meeting people like Ezra from Vampire weekend that type of old money as you said who vacations in the Hamptons and goes to Paris to pursue music.
