Does habiter need a prepositionÉ

In my book 501 French verbs it teaches that the verb habiter doesn't require a preposition so, J'habite cette maison, is acceptable.  

Is "J'habite à [city] an exception?  Is "J'habite [city]" acceptable?

This question relates to:
French lesson "J'habite à [city] = I live in [city]"

Sorry for the error in the title (forgot which keyboard I was using!) Does habiter need a preposition?

Both "J'habite à [city]" and "J'habite [city]" are acceptable, although nowadays I seem to hear more of the former than the latter.
