The Best Cities in the Tri-States: Which is Your Favorite? [Poll]

I'm always seeing lists online of "the coolest cities in America" or "the best cities in America" or "the best cities to ... fill in the blank." Every time I see one of these stories, I read it.

Is it me or are you also seeing more of these fabulous birds this year?
