Pffff I know what you mean. London is super ghastly, except for the really rich areas like Chelsea, Mayfair, Marylebone, and Kensington. But its soooo crowded too and super polluted. The good thing about it is the shops I suppose. Paris is better but I've spent less time there. Its just so much more beautiful architecturally. The subway smells bad though. Its just hyped up becuase of the big companies, and rich people that live there. Everything's there, the good, the bad, and the ugly. People just focus mainly on the good. I'm not a fan of big cities, but they're useful for work. The best option is to live just outside so that you can get to them if needed but have fresh around and nature around you.0

I like London a lot for its numerous parks and green areas. I also think the Thames river makes the city more beautiful. However, if I was to live in Great Britain for a few years, I'd probably not want to live in London. I find the north with its countryside and small towns more charming.
Paris is unfortunately a very dirty and hectic city. However, it is awesome if you are into culture-related things such as art and architecture. I think my girlfriend and I have visited pretty much every museum there is in Paris - and there's A LOT of them. What I also like a lot about Paris is that there's lots of hidden history. Other than that, I feel the same way about Paris as I feel about London: it's a city you must have visited but I'd rather live in the peaceful countryside of the Provence than right in the middle of Paris.
New York can be cool for its multi-cultural feel and all the different bars and restaurants. I also like Central Park a lot. Two things I hate about New York are the rude people (I have been there several times now and people were always very rude) and the traffic. The latter is unfortunately also true for most other American cities. American cities could be so beautiful if it wasn't for the constant noise and the stinking air you have to breath. It makes you not want to explore the city on foot and that's really a shame because that's the best way to discover hidden pearls. I wish New York could kill down its traffic a little.1
