Derby #154: Cities

Hey, this Derby's over. When you're finished reliving past glories, check out what's going on in the Derby right now. It's probably even cooler. Or at least newer.

Man's ability to build permanent settlements ushered in a brand new era in human evolution: crops could be cultivated, animals could be domesticated, and sports teams could be compared. This Derby we're celebrating all things metropolitan; give us your best take on cities. Maybe it's a reason to come visit the city of your choosing. Maybe it's a map of the best places in town. Maybe it's your dream city. Just show us your conceptualization of cities, life in them, and what makes them better/worse in your opinion. Of course, cities function on the concept of law and order, so we've got some rules:

No "I ♥ _____." Those NY folks get lawyer-happy in a hurry.

No video games.

No Star Wars.

No bunnies.

No mas. A totally random rule from a totally random Woot CEO totally randomly-named Matt.
