If money were no object, which major USA downtown would you pick to live?

During the past three months, I've traveled to Manhattan, San Francisco, San Jose, Portland, Chicago, and Miami for biz/personal trips.

I've stayed in mid-priced hotels. (Actually, non were cheap as in staying at a Best Western in the 'burbs. )

Observations:
Manhatten: Used to love to go here. Now I find it crowded, dirty, and people are rude on the streets, but normal once inside. Least value per sq ft of hotel space of all the cities.
San Fran: Love the Wharf. Expensive, a homeless problem, past its prime?
Portland: Beautiful, had to fight off the homeless on every block as I walked. No sun the entire trip.
San Jose: Energy! Wonderful weather, expensive as hell. Traffic sucked.
Chicago: More I go, the more I fall in love. Clean, not crowded, people are friendly. Saw two panhandlers the entire weekend. Good hotel value.
Miami: Great food, the babes on South Beach were amazing eye candy. It would be too hot in summer. Condos expensive.

So if I had to move from middle of no-where Wisconsin where there are more cows that cars, I would pick downtown Chicago and try to find a condo overseeing a river or Lake Michigan.

What about you?

I've lived in/near large towns while in the military and you couldn't pay me enough to live in a downtown area.

I wouldn't choose to live in a downtown anywhere...

Crowded, bad traffic

There is no way I would live in downtown SD... way better to live in a surrounding area

Same here. If money were no object, I would buy Wyoming.

If forced to pick a big city, suicide seems the best option

I work in Chicago. I live about as far away from Chicago as I can and get to work in a reasonable amount of time.

The correct answer is Los Angeles. No better city on earth to be wealthy in. Terrible place to be poor, though.

Have lived in Manhattan for 15yrs. There are so many varied experiences you can have here depending on the neighborhood - e.g., I'm in the West Village which isn't crowded or dirty at all - that it's really difficult to treat it as one thing.

That said, I've been to all the places on your list, and right now I'm transitioning to SD which is just an amazing place. That gets my vote over and over again.

LA is a dump! Clique's all over, pompous shallow assholes in Bev Hill and Hollywood, smog, gang bangers everywhere, ocean is cold and some of the worst traffic anywhere.

I wouldn't live there if you paid me!

San Diego, all day, every day. Which is why I moved here a year and a half ago.

If not SD, I’d go Denver.
