List totally fails without Kokomo, IN.  It's so beautiful, the Beach Boys wrote a song about it.

Harrogate the Melon Bunger: While I think their governance is absolute clownshoes, San Francisco belongs on any list like this, especially one that includes Chicago.  It's geographically stunning.   I get that maybe its buildings don't satisfy the algorithm in the article, but that's just a sign your algorithm is wrong.

In a movie you tell it's Chicago if you see the Willis tower or the John Hancock building, while the only way you tell San Francisco apart from any other city is just the Golden Gate Bridge.
