Charleston the #1 city in America, #2 city in the world

Charleston was just named the second best city in the world (after Kyoto, Japan), and by extension, the best city in America. I can’t say I’m not pleased that my city continues to get such high praise and recognition… However, this continuing trend is a bit worrying, given all the things that seem to have resulted from past such awards, namely laws designed to make the city more outwardly tourist-friendly, but which only end up hurting locals. Eg., fining pedicab drivers for discussing local history, trying to shut down bars and restaurants at midnight, increased persecution of street musicians, etc…
