On a world wide perspective, outside of the United States, because all Americans should know both, which city do you think is more well known?

Which city do you think conjures up more mental images for people when they think of it?

Dublin, London, Moscow, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Mexico City, Tokyo, Beijing are not well known??? Kinshasa, Nairobi, Lagos, Lima, Caracas, Bogata and Monrovia are frequently the only cities known in those countries.
