I agree it's surprising. Sorry my point probably wasn't clear...my point is that I would guess that a world ranking would ensure a sampling of different cultural renditions of a city (e.g., a few from each global region). And after comparing against our domestic counterparts, I am not hugely surprised Boston would be on there ahead of many other U.S. cities...

I do agree its still a bit surprising to make the global list.
