Favorite city and why?

I'm sure most people on this board have traveled quite a bit. Just curious what everyone's favorite "City" is and why? I'm not talking about the small town in the back woods....

Myself: Tokyo. It never sleeps, people are very friendly, you could never cover the entire city and there’s almost ZERO crime (last time I was there).

Anyone else?

None -- the closer I am to a city, the closer I come to breaking out in hives...

No problems at all. I actually prefer them. I usually spend half my travel time in a large city and the other half in the neighboring small towns.

I'm just thinking future vacation. My niece wants me to take her to NY next summer. I've never had the slightest desire to go there, but I keep hearing good things. I've traveled quite a bit throughout S.E. Asia and was curious about people's favorites (Prague, London, Amsterdam, etc).

Come to Baltimore and act like you are lost you will be amazed how the locals will treat you. Even better the cops here love lost people (there was an article on that some time ago).
Hell I remember when I first moved in and my lawnmower walked away a cop on the phone asked me why did I moved to Baltimore.

NY is a great place to visit, frequently even, but living and working there in my experience is a different matter.

Amsterdam is pretty and great if you like sitting in coffee shops 'chillin''.It's a good place for a long weekend but has no great depth.

London, well, the cultural icons reach out and slap your face each time you turn a corner, but it's not as safe or clean as it was a couple of decades ago and it's very expensive. Spend 4/5 days in town then head out into the country to somewhere like Bath and visit Salisbury and Stonehenge on the way. Just be prepared to deal with a bunch of rubber neckin' tourists, (or do I mean terrorists, by George?)

My faves other than the afore-mentioned SF would be Istanbul, Venice and Rio but not in any particular order.

The furthest east I have been is Mumbai and Delhi, but I would love to visit Tokyo and Shanghai as part of some far-eastern junket. It's on my list of to-dos.

Guanajuato Spain. Tiny little ancient gothic town where they run the bulls once a year and you could hide from Interpol with very little problem. Oops, gotta find a new one now.
