New York is the ONLY true 24 hour city in the US.

Not Vegas, not Chicago, not Miami.
Vegas is most definitely 24 hours. Days can morph into each other in vegas, its crazy. If you don't think vegas is 24 hours, you might need to get back there and have a more wild time.

LV is the only truly "24-hour" city that I know of where you can do anything and get anything 24 hours a day -- including get booze or go to a bar. Some of the other cities listed here might have scattered activity here and there during the late-night through early-morning hours, but in LV it's possible to never have any idea what time it is if there's no clock and you don't have a watch.

I think it's clear which cities are 'true 24/7 cities' and I realise outside NYC and the Vegas strip none are, but I'm interested if some of these cities are a little bit more active than others at all hours despite not being truly 24/7.

Atlanta is the most 24 hour city, because the waffles house is every corner and they stay open 24/7/365 366 in a leap year!

Naw, Balmore beats Atlanta in this category.

Those crab houses in the hood stay open whenever the bullets aren't flying.

Yum, yum.

Sorry I'm late to the debate you guys, I just finished up my scattered, smothered, covered, chunked, topped, diced, peppered, and capped order of hash browns. Looks like I'm just in time to catch the usual nonsense and completely ridiculous comments about Atlanta. And BTW, having lots of Waffle Houses is never a bad thing, especially after drinking into the wee hours of the night which you can do in DeKalb County (thanks john for the call on that).

I wasnt bashing Atlanta; that was a compliment. Hell, i wish Baltimore had a waffle house, everytime i go to the south i gotta hit up a waffle house... to the atlanta residents, relax nobody is talking bad about atlanta.
