    What's your favorite city? There are a lot of great ones in the world, Lisbon, Sydney, Rome, Chicago, London, Cairo, San Francisco, Tokyo, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, Toronto, Istanbul, etc. ....But heck my favorite IS and always WILL be:

    NEW YORK CITY

    The city of my father's birth and the city I have visited often throughout my 28 years on planet Earth.

    There ain't no other city like it my friends. It's got everything, a great theatre district, fine restaruants and bars, the most diverse variations in culture and art, the most elaborate museums, priceless works of art, the skyscrapers, the sports teams, the music scene, the history, the feel of the place, it's got it all.

    My vote for Favorite city on Planet Earth.

    (and I would have said the exact same thing BEFORE 9/11, so don't think this city is getting my praise because of that!)

    I quote David Letterman:

    New York City's *new* slogan:

    "Our city can kick YOUR city's ASS!"

    Well BC, I've yet to make it to New York city, but I plan on doing so before I cross over. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    But I'll move this thread over to the NON because I bet it will get the attention it deserves. Out.

    Holy crap, I've been there myself man! My Aunt and Uncle used to live in that town. They both worked at Bucknell University. Did you used to go to school there or something?

    Really nice town, I agree! Gotta love the *famous* Cow...! (If you know Lewisburgh, you'll know what I'm talking about)

    My mother and father live there now. Old man works at Geisinger Medical Center over in Danville. It is truly amazing that places like that still exist. No one has to lock the doors, people are freindly and groceries don't cost too much. YOU CAN BY BEER TO GO AT THE BAR!! To top it off, the public school system actually teaches kids to read, write AND do math. Can you dig it? As soon as I have (wifey actuallly) a kid, I am moving there. No better place to raise a family [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I would really love to visit New York someday.

    San Diego's my favorite city though. I was kinda born there. 'Tis beautiful down there, I really like it a lot.
    I'm one of those crazies on your block.

    I love living in Boston. There's Boston, which is a fun town, then there is the Cape, Newport, Foxwoods, White Mountains, Berkshires, Maine, Green Mountains, all within two hours. Everything is so close. Shit, I live in a nice little suburban town, yet downtown Boston is only about 12 miles away. Can be parked in the North End in 15 minutes if nothing is going on.

    I haven't traveled extensively at all, but I can't imagine a better place to live. I don't know dick about the west coast, though, so I can't say too much. I know I'd rather be here than anywhere else on the east coast or in the midwest.
