Undoubtedly London vs. New York.

I think that was possibly the longest running thread of all time.

Lol ...

So just because London has less skyscrapers, means it's less of a major world city than New York. Your comments are utterly worthless, "Mr. One Post".

Toronto v.s. Wienerville (Chicago)

What? Hamilton and Buffalo didn't make the cut!?!? But it's the thread that won't stop!

Hong Kong vs. NYC: the buildings, the financial business, the laissez-faire attitude, the island location (not all of HK), the billionaires, the real estate magnates, the port, airports, fantastic shopping, bargain shopping, gateways to economic powerhouses (US and China), ruled by the British for some time, high rise residential living, unbelievable views....Must I go on?

London and Paris is a classic rivalry. I would put New York, but its in a league of its own.

I agree London VS Paris is/was actually real. Its got a lot of history behind it. I don't think London or NY ever really compete, they are like brothers....
Anyway London VS Paris

I'm assuming this poll asks for the best city v. city thread, rather than which cities make good rivals in general...

Toronto v. Chicago - as epic as "War and Peace." Many reputations were forged--and also destroyed--in that battle.
