The title says it all. You could travel to any place you want to, but you are limited to living and working in just one city.

Which city would you choose and why?

I would pick the city I live in right now because I'm familiar with it.

NYC. Without a doubt in my mind. If you wanna be the greatest, you have to live in the best city in the world.

It's not as bad as I thought it'd be. It's a cool little city. But I definitely don't plan on staying here.

Hong Kong.

The most vibrant place I've ever been.

And CLEAN.

Porto, Portugal. Portugal's second city. Much more laid-back than Lisbon, the capital, and has a lot of charm. Full of down-to-earth people. Has a fantastic new metro system, climate is like that of Northern California, and is not that expensive. Feels like Mediterranean Europe, but not as chaotic.

Clearly, this is conditioned on not having to work and just getting by.

Definitely NYC. I would not mind spending the rest of my life there as long as I had a good job/income to have a comfortable life there.

Hong Kong is clean? My preconceptions are wrong then.

Anyone who votes NY gets rep from me, just sayin'.

If you excuse the air pollution it could be described as clean.
