    The winner for me is New York. For someone who'd never been on a subway before, navigating my way through the city was easy. I love the atmosphere of New York, the energy and vibe I felt when I was wandering about. I love the history, the architecture, the people and the culture. Some may say the Times Square/Broadway District is overrate and/or too touristy. I say it's equivalent of heaven. And I love the fact that even though I'm going back in a couple months, there will still be secrets and discoveries the city will have for the next time I'm there. My opinion is very biased. Although I enjoyed Los Angeles and I'd probably go back, New York is where my heart is.

    Between the two New York has to be my clear favourite, though neither compares to Chicago. Everyone had ever talked to who had been to New York kept telling me how it was filthy and the people were rude and people get shot every time they go out to buy milk, but that's really not the point. Yes the city has some major issues, but it also has these quaint little coffee shops and record stores and art galleries and some truly amazing museums. Los Angeles is a big city, but it's just incredebly underwhelming when you get there. New York for me was an experience, while Los Angeles was just another place I've been.

    I prefer the logical layout of NYC. Basically, Avenues run North to South through the city. The numbers start at 12th Avenue on the West side. Streets run East to West and start at 1st Street, right where the East Village begins. Below the East Village there are no more numbered streets. Subways & buses are easy to navigate with a basic city map....and cheap, too!!! Get here to there in a matter of often 30 minutes or less. Sounds like a plan to me!!!
