    I'll list my top 5 U.S. cities

    1. NYC
    2. Chicago
    3. SF
    4. Boston
    5. D.C.

    Urbanity, Sports, Culture, Food, and Entertainment are some of the criteria I used. I don't mind weather too much as long as it isn't too cold or too hot.

    Boston?

    With the exception of SF, they fall really flat in the grand scheme of things. DC is a sleazy sausage fest. NYC is cool because of those who have temporarily gentrified and the quantity of everything, but it's not as cultural as a place like Berlin, dirty and is a walking advertisement. Actual locals are meh. London is a better version.

    Notice how I said in the U.S. -- wasn't looking to compare them to the rest of the world.

    What's wrong with Boston? Tons of history and culture there.

    D.C. has some good looking women. Go around the Georgetown area... there's tons. NYC is arguably the cultural capital of the world -- never been to Berlin though. Yes NYC is dirty, but the tradeoff for that is vibrancy. It's difficult keeping a city clean with the amount of people in and around Manhattan, BK, etc. especially when they don't have things like Alleys to put trash in. London I've heard is a great city -- hoping to visit in the near future. SF has a nice blend of urbanity and outdoors among many other things, but it's not the only great city in this country IMO.
