OK, then I would change it to a two-stage selection:
- first show all possible values for a category (e.g. by state/province, by first letter of name, by first two digits of zip code, whatever seems appropriate)
- then display the - much shorter - list of cities that belong to the chosen category

So if you come up with say 20 categories, the user would chose one, then select from an average of some 200 cities; much easier than scrolling through thousands of them.
