    this city is something

    Is this good?

    This city. It's not the cleanest in the world. It's not the brightest and certainly not the most beautiful. But it's something.

    Re: this city is something

    I think it is better to put the four sentences into one. In fact the first is not a sentence.

    This city is not the cleanest in the world, not the brightest nor the most beautiful, but it's something.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    Perhaps:

    This city is not the cleanest, not the brightest, and not the most beautiful, but there is something special about it.
    Not a professional teacher
