If Earth has a capital, I figure it would be New York City. As it is the most diverse metropolis in the world.

But to answer the OP's question, I wouldn't live in any top 10 major city either. At present, I live in Tokyo and it feels like hell here sometimes with all the people crowded in trains and the street. I swear to God, I've been groped many times while in a rush hour train.
I would either live in my hometown in Otaru, Japan or in Hawaii.

By way of comparison the metro area of Huston Texas is over 26,000 km2.
Not a city? Metro? You are on the subway?

How can I judge without having been to all of them? In terms of culture Los Angeles has the greatest influence but I don't think I'd like it there.

For entertainment, Los Angeles.

For culture and food, Paris.

For quality of life, Sydney (Toronto is close, but the climate ain't too friendly)

For history, Rome.

For urban or city life, Tokyo.

It really depends here...
