Where exactly "northern" are you talking about. Toronto receives 50 inches of snow on average per year, and in 2009, the city got like a quarter of that amount, maybe 20?

Last time Toronto got 80 inches of snow was 1938-39, which was also the highest record.

The late David Niven once stated that 'Toronto is what New York City would be like if it were run by the Swiss'.

The American city most like Toronto would have to be San Francsico.

In what ways? The high asian populations and the acceptance of gays?

The quote was actually by Peter Ustinov.

On 30 Rock Steve Martin said, Toronto is like New York.. without all the stuff!

I'm voting its most like Chicago which isn't a bad thing (I like Chicago). Having lived in NY, its nothing like NY (and NY is nothing like Toronto either?). NY I'd put in the category of MegaCities (e.g., Shanghai, Tokyo..)

[quote=jonjj;1788906] One thing that astonished me there was the lack of cabs like NYC and Chicago. quote]

Lack of cabs in NY? Are you just joking?

From the feel I got in Toronto with the energy, the diversity and the progressive nature I felt, the only comparisons I could really think of were possibly Chicago and Minneapolis/Saint Paul...

I have heard that Chicago is actually fun. So why the Toronto-Chicago comparisons?
