Hamilton isn't ugly. Fantastic setting: the Lake, the mountain. Great old buildings and some great industrial architecture. All Hamilton needs is some renovation and upgrading. The city itself, has great 'bones'. Hamilton has the potential to be one of the most beautiful cities on the continent, but all some people see is the decay.

It's like saying the Old Vic in London is ugly. It was never ugly, it just needed some money put into it after decades of neglect.

i don't really thin any city in NA is"beautiful",at least not in the sense of historical architecture(only quebec city),but i would say they should be considered interesting IMO these are:
1.NYC-which is one of the most important city in the world,very cosmopolitan and great architecture!
2.Chicago-great architecture,great skyline!
3.Quebec city-for historic architecture!
4.Miami-for carribean/latin american flavor and Miami Beach!
5.Boston-for historic architecture and history of city!

Hahaha, there is historical architecture in many north american cities. If you are referring to the age of the constructions, the largest city of NA (mexico city) was founded on 1325, so as you can, see is evidently that there are many historical constructions in north america.

I've not travelled enough of North America to give a fair summary, but from all the photos I've poured over on this site, other sites, television, film, and my own travels, the following seem to stand out.

Quebec City
Charleston
Montreal
Palm Springs
Mexico City
Vancouver
San Francisco

All of them have less beautiful areas, but parts of them are really gorgeous. Couldn't pick just 5.

Personal I consider Mexico as a Central America country, but if you say... I'd say that the most beautiful city of N.A. would be Guadalajara, Mexico 'cause in my opinion is SO DEVELOPED and AWESOM!!!
