Tokyo. It is my idea of a perfect city and what every other city should be like. London is up there too. I'm not a big fan of NYC.

Tokyo seems awesome but I wish it was just a tiny bit more accessible and maybe a bit more diverse. I mean it's great it's still so Japanese, but for a mega-city (top 3 in the world) it can still be a challenge for a foreigner.

That is actually the area of Sydney's metro. What americans call metros, we call cities just to confuse everyboby.

By way of comparison the metro area of Huston Texas is over 26,000 km2.

Yes, this is worth pointing out. New York City, for example, is not so good for even middle-income people. And there are a number of U.S. cities where the median income is actually higher than in New York City and where the cost of living is considerably lower.

But still, we're talking about all-around city characteristics in this thread.

How about "not staying in the same place" as an option? That's my ideal lifestyle.
