San Fran is the only city on that list I haven't been to. That said I am voting for it.

San Francisco hands down. Greatest natural setting IMO and made even better with its charm and flare.

NYC has some awesome skyscrapers and one of the most exciting street life. But for cleanliness it sucks big time compared to Tokyo and Seoul

New Orleans after Katrina is prettier than some of those cities, should of definintely been included in this poll along with old cities like Charleston and Savannah.

Boston hands down - best combination of setting architecture, and historical charm. SF in second has a better natural setting, and is a bit more dynamic, but I prefer Boston's built form aesthetically (better colours, less repetitive beige buildings).

Boston is in my opinion, the most beautiful, though the skyline picture doesn't really do it justice.






New York however, is the most aesthetically stimulating city, and therefore the most aesthetically appealing city for me. San Francisco is somewhere between the two.

Los Angeles is by far the most breathtaking city. When I first saw it in a post card in Panama, I was surprised by the complicity of its skyline (by the way I did not what skyline was), and I know that's the beginning of my obsession of becoming an architect and hey I’m almost there. But I vote for DC because I live 45 minutes from it…LOL

A considerable portion of the inner-city, something like this:


Though there are still many beautiful areas outside of that like downtown, the North End, Cambridge, Fenway, etc.

Portland and Seattle are more beautiful than most of those cities.
