Minneapolis combined statistical area against the city of New York not including metropolitan area. Premier city of Northeast itself against The premier cities of the upper Midwest. To make fair all of the Minneapolis area against only city of New York. The Minneapolis area is 3.5, NYC is 8.3 mill. Which place has good nightlife, weather, sports, school, scenery, economics, power, culture, dining, vibe, lively, transport, and all other goods?

I have a soft spot for the twins, but NYC all the day long.

ROFLMFAO!! What is wrong with you people these days? Like last 2 days it seems like everyone on this site has gone to hell and come back and then lost their minds.

Whatever though.

Good nightlife: New York City, but honestly you can have a good time anywhere.
Weather: New York City for winter, Twin Cities for summer
Sports: Mehhh I don't like either one in this regard.
School: K-12 goes to the Twin Cities. Higher ed goes to New York City
Scenery: Tie
Economics: By unemployment the Twin Cities, by sheer size and power its New York City
Power: What the devil kind of question is this?
Culture: Subjective
Dining: New York City for fine dining (best in the world probably) but Twin Cities probably have a good level of variety too.
Vibe: I seriously don't know.
Lively: New York City
Transport: Airport to Twin Cities, public transportation to New York City

I'm voting for the Twin cities in protest of this unfair comparison.

Even though I have lived in the Twin Cities for 10+ years, I was born in the NYC area and it will always be my real "home."

NYC gets my vote.

I'm okay with that....the one thing NYC doesn't have is normalcy though, so when you get that you'll be "universal".
