    If people are going to vote for New Orleans (PK -- pre-Katrina) then other cities should be identified correspondingly:

    Johnstown, Pa (post-flood)
    San Francisco (pre-earthquake)
    Chicago (post-fire)
    Galveston (pre-hurricane)
    Havana (pre-Castro)
    Branson, Mo. (pre-a-bunch-of-retired-has-beens-opening-dinner-theaters).

    Northeast corner of Alabama. Great place to visit when the leaves are changing.
  7. The winner: Chicago.

    Runners Up:
    Boston has a special place in my heart, but it's a bit harsh.
    NYC is amazing, but you can't be middle-class in Manhattan any more.
    SF: see NYC; same problem.
    Seattle: Housing market lunacy might lead to shrinking of middle class here, too.

    WTF Award:
    DC. Yeah you could have great week with the museums and monuments, but as a place to live? Nightmare.

    Narcissism Award:
    tie: Portland and Austin. Great towns, but populated by people who think that they live in the only habitable place on the planet. Fuck off.

    Cheap Housing Award:
    Detroit: If you want a historic brownstone at blue-light prices, it's Rock City.

    Chock Full o' Assholes Award:
    Philadelphia. Tool central.

    Sleeper Award:
    Tucson.  The climate and the proximity of the border are issues, but people love living there.  It's beautiful and affordable.

    Best Days are Gone Award:
    LA and New Orleans.  Quite the places back in the day, but it's all over now.
  8. Did you write your list 10 years ago?

    Philly's a great town. It gets a bad rap.

    Buck is right. It's also why Philly is on my personal list of best places to get that A$* kicked free of charge. No town does it better, except Oakland.

    Halifax is my fave party town in Canada, no question. It's fucking great. Charlottetown - indeed all of PEI - is beautiful. In the Ontario division, Kingston is gorgeous in the summer and I could live in Ottawa too. Can't see the attraction in Windsor aside from the strip joints and the oldest hockey rink in the OHL. I'd put Sudbury in there - if you don't mind snow.

    One thing I know about Toronto that's overrated: the fucking Leafs.
