Imaginary Cities

Thinking more about my Spider-Man post, as well as the science fiction work of China Mieville -- who has a third book coming out about the steampunk/magic megacity New Corbuzon in August....

So which made-up cities would you visit? I think I'd like Gotham City better than Metropolis. You get the sense that the bars and restaurants are better in Gotham.

So which made-up cities would you visit? I think I'd like Gotham City better than Metropolis. You get the sense that the bars and restaurants are better in Gotham. I'd love to see Minas Tirth from Lord of the Rings. Always loved the seven tiers with ring-walls. Maybe the capital city of Arrakis from Dune...the planet-sized city of Trantor, capital of the galaxy in Asimov's Foundation books....

What am I forgetting?
