"London is not really European. It's British!"

Well, English not British. Just got back yesterday from London and Paris. Paris feels European. London is a comfort zone for Americans though.

London feels more American than other European cities. It is a great gateway to Europe.

I think London is very European. it's the belly button of Europe. Southern areas like south Spain or Italy don't feel very european to me.

London is British, but
some parts of the city feel British, some parts feel European, one district (CW) feels American. The diversity of London is one of the reasons I admire that city so much.

London seems a lot newer architecturally than say Rome, Barcelona or Marseilles. When I was there a few days ago certain streets seemed like Philadelphia, Montreal, Manhattan, Boston, Toronto and DC. I was surprised by the abundance of 70's architecture. London is the mother of North American style. The most European thing about London was the weather and St. Paul's cathedral.

London is Very European....if you go to the right areas, because London is so HUGE, they are easy to miss, but if you look in the right places, like this guy...

Ok, but what does it mean "european"?

Modernity? History? Skycrapers?

i.e. Italian cities look more mediterranean, not very modern and no skycrapers (just a little bit), but many history. Even if in Italy there are many differences.
