I haven't lived in NY, just been there a week and loved it. That was 8 years ago, with the WTC still on.
I live in Palermo, BA.

Difficult to pick three, but if I had to pick, it would be:

1. Paris
2. St Petersburg
3. Sydney

Many have said NYC, which seems like bias really. Impressive, exciting, vibrant, fun and entertaining it is, but physically beautiful? That's debatable!!

New York is beautiful but only an idiot posts so many pictures.

Those BA photos up top this page really have something about them..

Very difficult decision. From what I have seen personally (because pictures lie..) I would have to say: (Major cities)
1. Paris
2. Sydney
3. Vancouver

Keep in mind I have not been to China, Japan, Brazil, India, the Middle East or Russia, so my decisions are only based on the comparisons I am able to make. I have been to all the major American cities, all the major Canadian cities, throughout Central and South America, East Africa, South Africa, and throughout Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the Caribbean. Those are the prettiest cities for both their natural and man-made beauty.

P.S. anyone who says Paris is not the most beautiful city in the world, has either never been there for enough time to truly appreciate it, or is a self-depricating Frenchman, angry about the heavy tax burden or immigration. (or they've been somewhere I haven't..)
