Charleston looking spectacular! Excellent landscaping and architectural vernacular.

From what I've seen of Savannah, it's quite a stunner too.

I'm a fan of Boston, but in many ways I would have to say NYC is the most beautiful.

I find New York stunning in some parts and ugly in some, esp the farther you distance yourself from Manhattan, although there are very lovely neighborhoods in Brooklyn, Queens, and Bronx and State Island is very charming as well.

Other than NYC, the most beautiful cities I've been to and deserving to be called such:

Vancouver
San Fancisco
Boston
Los Angeles
Toronto

I haven't been to other places but seeing the pictures, North America definitely has amazing cities. Maybe due to the fact that alot of the architecture there is influenced by the different ethnicity which is lacking in Asia and European cities.

Tacky in a way, but still has some incredible views, and beautiful public spaces.

Cities and Towns in southern States of the US are quite beautiful with their verandas and shutters. Would like to see some more shots from there.

We never put Vegas or LA on these lists, but their landscapes are pretty stunning. Just got back from a trip to both a week ago. Stunning natural settings.
