NYC, without a doubt in my opinion. It did not live up to its hype for me, obv it has some fans here. At least they cleaned up their chud problem

Weird list. Where's London, Paris, Berlin, LA, Amsterdam, Tokyo, Vancouver (often appears as #1 city in city rankings), Sydney? Would have made more sense to list the major internationally popular metropolises.

Because I hear a lot of stuff like this from Americans - while I like NY I definitely don't think it's the 'greatest city on earth' so I would say it is the most overrated city even though I like it.

Also like Singapore but also find it overrated.

LOVE Sydney. Beautiful city - thought it lived up to expectations.

I am always flabbergasted when I hear people going ga-ga over this city. In my view, it is the most overrated city in the history of mankind.
There is so much ugliness gathered in that place I cannot even begin to fathom why so many actually admire it.

I was there once, briefly, and do not plan to ever go back unless an emergency will require it.

Maybe because those are rated ...just about right as opposed to "over"??
