Clearly that means they're not tan enough.

1) it's "Bridge and Tunnel" not "Tunnel and Bridge" you rube
2) Most beautiful people in NYC are not from here and

Saw an article about this yesterday saying Savannah was rated 8th for most attractive people, but 3rd for happy hours and 1st for ice cream parlors.

I used to work in an office right next to the fashion district... every chick I saw elsewhere looked like a damn troll for a long time afterward.

Huh. I figured they would be further down the list behind every single place in coastal southern California

Hey, give Jersey some credit. It has its fair share of orange clowns as well (just not with TV shows).

Everyone in Savannah seem s attractive because everyone in Savannah is drunk.

I thought Jersey was NYC's ugly friend that made it look better by contrast

no, that's staten island.


Rapmaster2000: Everyone in Savannah seem s attractive because everyone in Savannah is drunk.

that's a big myth, alcohol does not make ugly people more attractive. it makes it so you could care leas that they're ugly.

Many of the beautiful people in NYC are just transients, they have homes on at least 3 continents. Limit the pool to US taxpayers and I bet NYC plummets.

Minneapolis/St. Paul? Is the list maker from Wisconsin?

I have never been to Savannah but I want to go. I hear it is nice. Is there any industry there besides shipping?

Savannah is attractive because SCAD art kids are all over the place.

Savannah is an amazing place to visit. Adorable places to stay, amazing food, and the historic district is gorgeous. Also lots of artsy stuff to see and do, and regular fireworks, and Tybee is only half an hour away.

Philadelphia's excellent food seems to be its downfall, according to readers. Editors blame the City of Brotherly Love's poor ranking on it's inhabitants' expanding waistlines and "lack of athleticism."

This is not wrong.

In a year I will get to relocate anywhere I want in the lower 48. I am thinking of spending a year in a "new to me" location before returning to where my family is. For no good reasons, Savannah is on my list (probably about third behind Denver area and San Diego). On a scale of one to ten, how good of an idea is Savannah for a year?

Come to Chucktown. Savannah is a drive away and we're a lot bigger and bonus, no GA state police!

NYC has to the be one of the worst big cities in the industrialized world. The European ones tend to have better old world charm and are ahead of NYC in terms of public safety/cleanliness. The Asian ones have transportation grids that are decades better than NYC has and more modern construction (and they tend to have less crime with a much better night life, mmmm night markets). About the only ones NYC beats are the smog covered Chinese cities and that is solely due to smog. On the days Shanghai has good air quality it beats the pants off NYC and does it while handling 22 million people in its metro area. NYC is basically the bottom third for all the metrics out there.

/America as a whole though tends not to excel at big metro areas
//we have lots of awesome midsized ones though

Boston is 20? Our ladies are famous for being "English Pretty", so I was surprised to see us so high. Are our men skewing it higher? I certainly didn't.

you do seem to know what you are talking about. the only people who think NY is the greatest city on earth have never been anywhere else.

10. The only negative is the heat in the summer (and no snow in winter, though I did see snow on palm trees my first winter here).

It's unbelievably charming. I've lived here ~3 years now.

What's worse, they're PROUD of that. Anything you mention that sucks about NY, NYers will rationalize the living fark out of it: it makes the people strong and creative, it makes the dirtwater dogs taste better, it makes them a World City (meaning a city whose relationship to its own country consists mostly of hand gestures and eye rolls).

Philadelphia has good food? I thought y'all just ate overcooked steak covered it with cheeze whiz on cheap bread.

/ just kidding
// but, i had never heard before the philadelphia was famous for it's food. it's a city, so I can't imagine it has bad food... but, i never thought of it as a food destination (like new york, napa valley, or new orleans might be)

I haven't heard the claim made much recently, but once upon a time Philadelphia was known for it's culinary assets.

In fact, Philadelphia Cream Cheese was originally made by an Upstate NY company. They chose the name because they wanted to associate the product with a city known for it's food. Let's face it, "Chester Cream Cheese" probably wouldn't have sold as well.
