Those pictures are absolutely fabulous. And I confirm:

1 NYC (no need to explain why, after those pics)
2 Rome ( 2000 year history of the human brain)
3 Boston area (that includes the area with Harvard University): the perfect mixture of old and modern.

China is cool imo! And i can imagine bonivision likes cities in his own country most, above other cities in the world. I also like cities in my homecountry the Netherlands more than... let's say New York, Paris, London or whatever. That's because i grew up here, and i consider the aspect familiarity as important part of beauty. Those big cities on the other side of the world are indeed impressive, maybe even beautiful, but they are just pictures for me. They don't live in my head. I can imagine bonivision has the same standards as me by defining beauty.

NYC is not beautiful...

...Manhattan is!

Therefore, I revise my list:

1. Paris
2. Manhattan
3. Vancouver

I'm well aware that there is more to NYC than Manhattan. I simply don't find NYC outside of Manhattan to be "beautiful", especially compared to cities elsewhere.

What is up with you and Communism? First you accuse the CN Tower in Toronto of being Communist, and now this!
(better check under your bed.. might be some Communists lurking).
