    According to Travel and Leisure magazine, the best city in the world right now you could visit is San Miguel de Allende in Mexico, followed by Charleston in the USA, followed by Chiang Mai in Thailand. These three places, however, don’t even get on the top 20 places to actually live, in this year’s Quality of Living Index, a yearly list compiled by HR firm, Mercer. Apparently, if you want to live the good life, you should move to Vienna, Austria, Zurich, Switzerland, or Auckland, New Zealand. The top twenty list doesn’t include any cities from the UK or the USA, two countries that have arguably been the two heavyweights in the last century regarding power and wealth. These two countries, however, contain cities that attract millions of overseas visitors every year. Today we are going to compare them, in this episode of the Infographics Show, New York City vs London.

    London doesn’t even COMPARE LOL. New York State has a yearly gdp of 1 Trillion. New York state is desolate. The city of New York brings all that in. New York also has all four seasons. You can get around anywhere without a car. The transit runs 24 hours. Theres always something to do the city has lots to look at, extremely diverse areas.

    LOL, but for real, New York City is a lot more iconic in modern culture than London. In terms of stereotypes, New York is the annoying, loud, rude one that everyone dreams of catching up to but hates on, but London is the posh, smarter, healthier, classier, more historical one that no one hates on or dreams of catching up to.

    Sort of an odd comparisons really. Yes, they are the only two alpha++ cities in the world, but apart from that, there isn’t much to compare. For example, London is not only the capital of England, but is also the capital of the United Kingdom, whereas not only is NYC not the capital of the U.S., it’s not even the capital of the State of New York. So much of a city is built around its government institutions,
    Additionally, The centers of the U.S. economy are so much more spread out. For example, you won’t find the heart of the American entertainment industry in New York, but rather in L.A. Intranationally, NYC has to compete against other global alpha cities such as LA, Chicago, D.C., Miami, and San Francisco, -as well as a dozen beta cities - for American business, whereas London does not within England to nearly the same degree (Manchester appears as a beta city). This is why London accounts for 22% of the U.K.’s economy. And lastly, London is thousands of years old, whereas NYC is a couple hundred years old.
    Both are wonderful cities, though, that’s for sure!

    I don't really like either but if I had to pick, it's definitely London. It's a lot more laid back, far less crime, cleaner, people are more polite, more rich culture, more history etc. I just hate what London has become - a melting pot. I will still say I much prefer it to New York though.

    Lol Londons bars and clubs close quite early or most of them do ...
    The Bar Scene
    The majority of pubs close at 11pm, though recent statute reforms allow premises to apply for 24 hour licensing. Some pubs have stuck to 11pm closing but chain pubs, bars (close between 12:30 and 1:30am weekdays, 1-3am weekends) and clubs (most close at 4am, some open until 7 or 8am) generally stay open later.

    but in New york it's even worse they have to stop serving alcohol at 4 o clock pretty shitty for places that never sleep ...and than you talk about the city as a tourist attraction ... both citys are quite dirty to be honest and are way to big for a short stay and there is nothing really special in both citys it's quite expensive to party and hard to get into clubs if you travel as a group of men and that's true because both citys have quite wealthy people living there working for stock exchanges spending like crazy per party if you like to party Mallorca Ibiza Asia goldbeatch in Croatia ... there is no reason to visit any city to shop anything there therefor we have the internet ...i would pick london over new york anytime because crime is way lower in london if americans say sweden has more sexual crime that means more registered sexual crime because in sweden if you do something like slapping a coworkers as every day twice or so that's 10 crimes in sweden in the us that's maximum 1 if it even counts same is true for crime in London they keep track of everything they encounter and that gets reported in america they don't care so much about such statistics so if you would use the same base to count new york would blow london in therms of crime new york has more reported murder than the hole uk ... ....if i would like to see a mega city i would choose one in japan ... the us is so big so i would choose other places where it's cheaper to stay and you see things you havn't seen over and over on tv and such where you can go skying or have beaches that are amazing but i'm german and London is way closer and i can visit it every 2 to 3 years and i know some people there so london to see the city ... and other places to party and how it is to live and work in a place depends on your job and the people you encounter in your day to day live and how much you earn doing your job ....
