I started a project asking people this very same question about my city - Toronto, Canada, and I cannot even tell how surprising the answers sound. Indeed, asking questions is fun.

Well, crime is no fun, but I guess there are no perfect cities. I've been told recently that Toronto is one of the most expensive cities to live - I am not quite sure, though!
The best feature about your city for me is that you live there!
What a lovely answer! I can't come to Thunder Bay unless someone gives me a ride, but I witnessed a drastic change in weather in Calgary. I missed the lush greenery that Toronto has that Calgary doesn't. Loved Montreal, too!!!
Unfortunately, you won't find much green here now. We've got a pretty terrible winter storm here and all I can see is white! If you ever are able to come here though, come in the summer. They're wonderful. How is Calgary? I've never been.
The most striking difference between Toronto (Montreal) and Calgary is that Calgary does not have that many trees at all. From the bird's view point (from an airplane) it looked completely treeless.
It seems to be that TRAFFIC is more of a universal problem.
I love Toronto Public Transit (TTC, and even though we joke that it stands for "Take the Car"), I am completely safe coming home at 3 am or even falling asleep on a bus. Toronto is beautiful this way.
I have never been there, but it feels great just reading your answer as if a dear friend shows me around!
