New York in Twinity
Though the ultimate concept of bringing the world's most iconic city to Virtual immersive reality is cool, presently it is a just a mass of lag for me. Also, London and Berlin had clear centers that could serve as hugs. The area in front of Parliament in London makes a very good hub. In RL it is also a hang out area, though recently fenced in by a government tired of protests. Not how this will work in the mass canyons of New York. How many people would need to be in world before there is the slightest chance you might bump in to something.
Going through Berlin, Singapore, London and New York in Twinity I think old European town actually virtualise better than modern cities. Old cities have clear centers and are build on a scale for foot traffic (though they have grown beyond that). Twinity London feel kind of cool and there are place you are likely to meet people, Twinity New York is just spooky and laggy.
