Which big American city is the most European?

Everybody knows that here in America we have "The American Way of Life", and that our culture and traditions are in many ways different to European culture and traditions. But from this list of cities, Wich is the most European style in every sense of the word??

My French teacher (from France) told me that the inital impression of San Francisco is pretty similar to Marseille. And it is, actually.runaway:

Marseille



San Francisco



Marseille



San Francisco



But then again, some parts of SF are 100% American.

Boston of the big metros in the US, without a doubt. Of the medium-sized metros, New Orleans.
