Stay-At-Home Indie-Pop

London's an architectural mish-mash, as reflected in your pictures - equally frustrating and fascinating in the same viewscape, but at least it forces you to seek out the gems, rather than just taking it all for granted like you do in Paris after a day or two. Manhattan's a similar set-up, except there everything's more closed in, and if you look up for too long you'll accidentally bump into someone who's clinically insane. I like Berlin for the same reason, because you never know what's coming around the next corner - could be a grim, communist-era functional monstrosity, appealingly faded Weimar apartment blocks, something shiny, weird and innovative, or some old slaughterhouse knocked up into a concert venue or art gallery.
