The best city in the world is...
What's the best city you've ever been to?
The best city in the world is Anchorage, Alaska. It it not as big as many other cities but it is a major city in air travel cargo planes are always landing at the airport form other countries. Anchorage is also one the few cities were there is an abundance of wild life. I see a moose almost every day.
I think my favorite city is definitely New York City. I love Broadway, Times Square, Central Park, everything. It helps that I live an hour away. :)
I've seen a few Broadway shows. I went to the WTC in July 2001 (lucky me...) I've spent days of my life in Central Park. I've been to Yankee Stadium... a lot. I've gone all over midtown and downtown. And I've riden the subway just about everywhere. The only thing I haven't done yet is hailed a cab. XD
But basically, I love the city.

I went there last May. I saw the Lion King and Wicked on Broadway. Seeing a Broadway show for the first time is an amazing experience. The Lion king was way better by the way.
I wish I could have been there when the WTC was there.
I got to take a tour of Yankee stadium, just before they took it down. I got to visit the set of Saturday night live. It was a great trip.
It is an awesome place, but I would hate to live there, unless I was rich, then it would be awesome.
It would be cool to live an hour away.
I live like 10 minutes away from Dallas, not as cool. But still cool. =D

New York City is one of my favorite cities...Broadway, the studios, the Stadiums, restaurants and night life. Summer, winter, spring and fall...it's the most magical of them all. I grew up in a town about an hour away, lived in the city too and now I'm just a bit over an hour to Mid-Town. It's so cool being able to enjoy it all. The museums are great too and so is the Park. Even the skyline is to die for on both sides at night.
I've also lived in Miami Beach, San Francisco and Berlin, Germany

Rome is the greatest city in the world, its significance to western history is unparalleled, and the Western world's significance to the current world order is similarly unparalleled, because after all Democracy (or Republics) and industry are the two most important developments in world history.
I've lived in New York, Florida, Oklahoma and California. I liked San Diego best because in one 10 hour period you can visit the ocean, the mountains, and the desert. If it's winter, you can visit the snow on the mountains and head on down to the desert from there and then continue on to the beach. The winters are mild. I'm an outdoors person. I don't like to be surrounded by buildings. And, in case you haven't noticed, I don't like people crowding me in. ;)
A couple of years ago I went to New York for 5 days. When I left, I swore that one day I would buy an apartment there. It's as if a piece of my heart is still there. The beauty of it is that you feel at home from the moment you arrive. It is also a great example of how a multicultural city can work and be great. I was fascinated by the fact the people called themselves New Yorkers first and foremost, regardless of where they came from. I wish it was like that here in the UK...
The second city close to my heart is Athens. Great architecture, great people, warm, chilled out, and with the best Metro underground system in the world you can be anywhere in literally one minute.

I live forty minutes from New York City, and although I do love New York, I'm forever loyal to my home, Sweden, and to the most beautiful capital city: Stockholm. I simply adore Stockholm. The blend of old and new, the tradition, the canal, the bridges, the street fairs and historical significance, and, most of all, the people. And the fashion! Nothing beats Stockholm.
