Buffalo vs. Hamilton for me.

Nothing else comes close, although Melbourne vs. Toronto was pretty energetic.

(I voted for Buffalo and Toronto, myself).

London vs Paris is quiet a contest on this forum. Several threads have been made on the subject. The best isn't the term I would use, the term worse is much more appropriate IMO.

Singapre vs Hong Kong is also a popular one.

Finally, New York vs Chicago

Glasgow Vs Edinburgh.

Doesnt get much coverage on these forums because of a complete lack of Edinburgh forumers, but believe me when I say there is a MASSIVE rivalry between the two.

All you need to do is consider the facts:

They are the two biggest and proudest cities in Scotland, and are only 45 miles apart from each other!! One city(Edinburgh) calls itself the capital of Scotland and houses the Scottish Parliment, the other(Glasgow) is by far and away the biggest of the two(metro population of roughly 2 million) and believes that it should be the captial, and it should have the Scottish Parliment.

The cities are extremely different, and residents of both cities are constantly engaged in a battle of words, with both sides constantly slagging each other off and claiming to be Scotland's first city.

It is a constantly heated debate that has been going on for hundreds of years. Trust me when I say that this is one of the worlds greatest City vs City contests. Pity there arent more Edinburgh forumers to prove why....

Melbourne vs Toroto - in terms of city size, pop. size, transportation and socio economic makeup

Melbourne vs Sydney - in regards to sports culture vs pop culture and lifestyle

Vilnius vs Riga - similar in size both vowing for euro investment

Minsk vs Kiev?

New York is over 15 times the size in Boston and enjoys the highest international profile of any American city.

Boston is a great city in its own right that I have been lucky enough to call home the past four years. But this city still has a gigantic chip on its shoulder that not even the Red Sox World Series win has managed to smoothen.
