What are some major cities known for? US and UK, mostly.

So, I have to move sometime and I'd like it to ideally be someplace that has a relatively inspired music/arts scene.
Chicago was terrible. This is where the line is drawn; Chicago has the music of tourists (as I'm now assuming all 1,000,000+ pop. cities are good for) and art school indie-dancepop kids.
So, my question is: what are some cities of the world known for? It doesn't have to relate to music. For example, Chicago is known for its jazz and blues and tourist attractions, and someone like me who doesn't like jazz and blues really shouldn't move there. For another example, I am getting the vibe that Portland, OR is pretty community-oriented. But I could be horribly wrong, because I hadn't asked this question yet.
Sorry this is phrased so very awkwardly.
