O.K. Since I’m from New York State, to be fair, I want to hear what city you have visited or heard of and think it is the BEST CITY – but it can’t be YOUR city!

If you even been there you would know itNovember 21, 2011 3:10 pm at 3:10 pm #829192apushatayidParticipant
I assume after Yerushalayim and anything else in Eretz Yisroel? by the very fact that Yerushalayim, is Ihr Hakodesh, makes it the best city in my book. After Yerushalayim, anywhere in E”Y would rank ahead of anything in CH”L.November 21, 2011 3:48 pm at 3:48 pm #829193ZosHaTorahParticipant
Prague – just spectacular architecture
Stockholm – an amazing “old city”
Barcelona – such an easy-going pace of life there
Ouray, Colorado – most beautiful “town” in the US. Spectacular sceneryNovember 21, 2011 4:09 pm at 4:09 pm #829194Raphael KaufmanMember
Hey tzaddiq, never mind the best city in the world. What’s the best city in New York State?November 21, 2011 4:23 pm at 4:23 pm #829195yungerman1Participant
Venice is beautiful, and I hear that Amsterdam (aside from the shmutz) is as well.November 21, 2011 4:56 pm at 4:56 pm #829196soliekMember

apushatayid- I agree with you. There is no place like the old city.November 21, 2011 5:25 pm at 5:25 pm #829198popa_bar_abbaParticipant
Best= Has highest Gross Product. NYC (I assume).November 21, 2011 5:35 pm at 5:35 pm #829199kfbParticipant
I don’t know about Yerushalayim being the best city in the World. Don’t get me wrong, it’s definitely the holiest and there are fun things to do there, but it does get boring after a while. Ben Yehuda is fun but for how long. I think New York and Miami are the best cities in the World. There’s soo much to do thereNovember 21, 2011 6:11 pm at 6:11 pm #829200tzaddiqMember
I have visited wonderful kehillos world wide and have my most favorite ones that I would like to share.
-There is no doubt any city in E”Y is special and holy, ranking #1 on my list.
-I spent a beautiful week in Venice, and fell in love with it.
-My cross country excursion 2 summers ago brought me to cities such as Atlanta, and Dallas which I will never forget.
-But my all time favorite city is Montreal, which has a warm heimish kehilla with a touch of European flavor that made up one of my best Shabbosim, and ranks as my top best cities.November 21, 2011 6:20 pm at 6:20 pm #829201
I didnt see any Schmutz in Venice , jews were never kicked out of Venice (They were ghettoized there, but never kicked out) and Chabad is strong there.November 21, 2011 6:53 pm at 6:53 pm #829202ToiParticipant
zdad- your saying why it shouldnt rank?November 21, 2011 7:30 pm at 7:30 pm #829203

I yearn for Yerushalayim but if I can’t be there, there’s no place like…. home!!!!!!(BP, of course.)November 22, 2011 12:04 am at 12:04 am #829209supergirl613Member

Thanks OneOfMany!! Yay I got a subtitle!
BoroParkgirl – I never would have guessed 😉
To me ‘Best city’ is a city i would consider moving to, if I had to move from my city. Taking into account: friends, family, type of people living there, weather, level of crimes, etc.November 22, 2011 2:30 am at 2:30 am #829212☕️coffee addictParticipant

a number of points to bring up
1. what makes something the “best” in your eyes? (holiest can be considered the best to some people)
2. Miami gets boring after a while too (live there for a while you’ll get bored, give it a month
personally I would say Yerushalayim alsoNovember 22, 2011 4:24 am at 4:24 am #829213
coffee addict: +1
if your looking for fun,kfb, go to Vegas or Disneyland. Why does best city necessarily have to mean entertainment?November 22, 2011 5:26 am at 5:26 am #829214ronrsrMember
Cucamonga. If you tire of the sights, you can have fun just saying the name.November 22, 2011 5:43 am at 5:43 am #829215hockaroundtheclockMember
Who are we kidding, we’re all going to end up in Lakewood eventually, and it has the best learning, so that makes it the best![out-of-towners and harrys calm down, this is sarcasm]November 22, 2011 12:46 pm at 12:46 pm #829216LuvMeMember
