Which of these cities come closest to Toronto overall(Tourism,economy,transportation,diversity,G DP etc)?
Toronto is considered one of the most diverse,safest liveable cities in the world.It does have drawbacks like every city,but how do certain American cities stick up against it?What city has the best combination of all these things?

Seattle has the low crime, big downtown,

I'd like to see a mapped out version of the built up areas of Seattle/Toronto cohesive DT's put together actually and see how they compare.

Yes.Just like you have an obsession like Toronto posters not facing reality that their city is the largest most uninteresting nice city in North America.
You seem to ave a problem with that.Especially in a forum designed to talk about such things.Quite baffling actually.

imo, Chicago and Toronto are very similar

-similar size
-similar architecture
-similarly diverse, though different racial segments--TO has more east and south asians, while Chicago has more black ppl
-both diverse economies
-both beside great lakes
-both are focused around large dense central downtowns, which is serviced by subway
-both have large suburbs, some of which are almost cities unto themselves (e.g., Mississauga for Toronto; Evanston for Chicago)

^ Haha Most uninteresting? According to who? Let me guess... you? Bold words from someone who knows next to nothing about what it's like to live in Toronto.

I'm sorry, but that's bull.

I'd rather live in a Dallas, Houston, or Atlanta (cheaper, warmer, good amenities for the money), but none of the above could match Toronto in anything except maybe GDP. Toronto is superior to every city in your poll by a long shot based on your criteria.
