Which city do you think is the most rounded in the world. What I mean by rounded is that there is a mix of Old and New, combines density and sprawl, fast life as opposed to slow paced, a city with diverse ethnicities and backgrounds, and a dense CBD with headquarters sprawled everywhere. Which city combines these and makes this city special?

My pick: Chicago

Chicago has a really dense downtown, where there is so much to do. Chicago also has its fair share of sprawl, which I believes makes Chicago a great place because if you don't want to live in a dense, livable downtown, you can move to the suburbs.

Definately London or Paris. They blend the old and the new the best. Between London and Paris I prefer London. It is more cosmopolitan and is very dnse. Plus, there is no experience like walking through London's streets.

Oh ok. I certainly wouldn't pick it as the best, but I think it is a pretty well-rounded city.
