If you're talking just the US, why, Boston, of course.

Now that Whitey Bulger's gone, and the Red Sox kick hinder in every Series they're in now, people have run out of jokes.

New York City? Prestigious? LMAO! Have you ever lived in NYC? Have you even been to NYC at all? You're setting a pretty low bar here when asking for a city more prestigious. NYC is more than just Times Square and all the fancy buildings the tourists see.

New York City is infested with bedbugs. I rest my case.

As Akage-Chan essentially says, this begs the question of how one might meaningfully measure something like prestige, desirability etc. for a city. This particular question is also fraught with subjectivity inherently.

As it is, this reminds me of those posters on sale in many touristy cities at least in the U.S. In the foreground, the home city is depicted in detail in all its glory. In the background is the rest of the country or the world, drawn as an empty wasteland with maybe a few landmarks of note cursorily dotted in. Oddly, as cosmopolitan as many city dwellers make themselves out to be, I've met quite few who are remarkably provincial and actually seem to think this way. Some have spent no more than a few weeks or months outside their home city, and are convinced they live in the center of civilization surrounded only by knuckle-dragging hillbillies.

NYC has bums, overpriced....everything, and worst of all, full of New Yorkers.

Tokyo I reckon, and Berlin seems to be really on the map.

When you say New York being a city of prestige, I cannot help but think you also think the Kardashians are American royalty.

America and most of its cities are not all that old, we do not have a ton of history compared to some places. You cannot walk into a building here and be told it has been here for a thousand years and stood undefeated in so many wars. America is fairly new compared to most places, and we kind have lost our class and tact, which leads to us being seen as a mostly stupid people to the rest of the world. Proof?

Kardashians are treated like royalty. Needn't say more.

My two cents anyways. Prestige is defined as something you admire or respect. I do not admire or respect New York City in any shape or form myself, what is there to respect and admire about it past it is big and crowded?
