I almost said New York, but I'll give my vote to San Francisco.

unless you mean that you're answer isn't on the list, that's a very immature and pathetic answer
So you have a problem if I dont like any of those cities?

I voted for NYC because of it's stunning skyline. But other cities like san francisco is perhaps as beautiful as nyc. You just need to take a closer look at the smaller buildings and the nature in and around the city. .

I chose SF on from this list. If I had another vote I'd probably give it to DC.

San Fransisco is so filthy, run down and overrun with homeless people. I don't like the style of the architecture either.

San Francisco is my favourite one, I like its victorian architecture, the spanish heritage at mission dolores, the bay, and its bohemian life. I also like NY city too much.

No stupid comments like this, please.

Just because you like something doesn't mean everyone feels the same way.
