The most overrated city in the world, massively overhyped by the American press and people in general. Former New Yorkers all rave about how great the city is, yet don't live or even visit the actual city anymore. Currently being run (poorly) by Michael Bloomberg.
If New York is the "Greatest City in the World," then North Korea must be the Greatest country in the world.
Contrary to popular belief, Tokyo is the "Greatest City in the World." It is, by far, the most hectic, electric, and eclectic city in the universe, no matter what Parisians, Londoners, or New Yorkers say.
Tokyo is approximately 50 years ahead of any other city in the world when it comes to technology, transportation, and flat-out greatness.
|52.||detroit rock city|
only the greatest thing that ever happened to me. apart from maybe the Neverending story...or Labrynth. either way its one kewl as movie. with some fabulous actors also. oh and its also a sweetly great song by kiss.
amy - man im a nerd...what with all the movies being the greatest things that ever happened to me n all...
not amy - yeah but detroit rock city is one fantastic movie. i cant blame you for not having anything better in your life. apart from the soundtrack....but not.
Best city in the world. Ethnic capital of the world. Has largest population of Mexican, Korean, Salvadoran, and Guatemalan outside of their countries. Everyone moves here to try to make it big and famous.
Movie capital of the world.
Yeah, it has bad traffic, smog, and crime...but so do many other cities. Like New York City. Except New York City is terrible. Los Angeles is the greatest city ever.
Best nightlife you'll find anywhere.
Best beaches and best looking women.
1: "I love Los Angeles, it's the greatest."
The capital city of Ukraine. Where the national soccer team for Ukraine plays. The birthplace of ME!
Kiev, the greatest city that was ever created!
I moved here when I was in 6th grade. It's becoming very, very hard for me to remember life before then. Germany, basically. So for all intents and purposes my existence as I know it started when I moved to Baltimore.more...
What makes this so ironic is that I began my life by migrating to a dying city.
I don't mean that in a bad way. Baltimore is a great city, of course, but there is no question that it's dying. Many cities have peaks, then depressions, peaks, depressions... has Baltimore ever had a peak? Not in this century, at least. We've had a steadily dropping population (300 thou now compared to 1960's 600 thou), consistent rises in crime, bad economy, etc. Things have been getting worse in Baltimore for so long now that it's become an essential part of the city's history. The culture is, in many ways, defined by a strange sense that it's pointless to hope for some future based on capitalist dreams. Baltimore isn't going to become a beautiful, booming, sky-rise metropolis anytime soon.
It is for precisely this reason that it has its charm.
I mean, when you think of what makes Baltimore appealing, it really is odd, isn't it? Anne Tyler described any entrance to Baltimore as initially jarring, as one will notice grease, grime and oil absolutely everywhere, covering the tiny rowhouses, the cracked streets, the run-down venues... unless, of course, you live here, in which case it's all very comforting.
You like the grime, you like the fact that everything, absol...
New York would seem so much better if people who live here, like me, wouldn't be so cocky as to say "we're the greatest city in the world!" bullshnit!!
And why are New Yorkers so scared that L.A. may be a better place to live? So many of the definitions (or whatever these musings are) mentioned something that sounded fearful of L.A.'s ascendancy...makes you wonder.
New York is a great city, but there are also other great cities in the U.S. and all over the world.
