It also depends on the city itself. Some cities are amazing but others are basically just a collection of suburbs.I've lived in 'big' cities and small rural towns. Most of my friends who make a big deal out of living in a big city no longer go to music shows in clubs, drink or eat out or go to arthouse theatres, all the real world advantages of actually living in a big city.
All the other former advantages of living in a big city, the book stores, music shops, etc. has been rendered less important due to the net.
Sometimes I think people just like the idea of living in a 'big city' even if they never leave their boring suburb.
I like many Spanish and French cities (outside of Paris) because there's often really nice regions around them that are indistinguishable from living in the country but you're in a major cultural city in less than ten minutes or so. I miss France in particular for this.
