    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.

    I, unlike some people who have commented here, have visited both and NYC is way better. Better landmarks, easier to get around, cheaper, more stuff to do, better shopping, better food etc.

      i totally respect that but you cant just assume that you are right. People have visited both, like me, and it depends on your requirements and your opinions. I like london better even though i am from birmigham, England. New york city was, in my opinion, less exciting than london

    NEW YORK is way, way, way better than London. NYC is a 24hrs city. People from all over the world. In London only indians and arabs lol. NYC is the capital of the world, London is the capital of Europe (not even the most visited city - Paris). New York has more attractive weather: Snow, beautiful fall, hot summer, beautiful spring. Famous people live in either NYC or LA. New York wins by a landslide.

  • L. Torres

    Remember, that NYC is composed of 5 boroughs (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, Staten Island) and if you only went to the typical places in Manhattan, you shouldn't judge the city based on that.

    • Nathan Scofield

    I'm from NY but I have lived in London for years now. Both cities are well connected and similar in terms of job opportunities/living standards, but they are very different in terms of culture/city layout. So any comparison would be mainly on a personal basis...(I love both cities but will probably return to NY eventually!) These comparisons done on numbers don't really mean much.

      @Peter D why you gotta bring up healthcare

    • Fernanda M.B.
      Fernanda M.B. 2 months ago

      Peter D I don’t disagree with that or that the UK is a better place to live than the US, believe me I wish I lived there, but the insane pay decrease that it would cost me makes it not worth it. Then again, that’s my scenario. The US is not perfect, there are many things I don’t like about here, believe me. I’m just here for the money lol

    • Peter D
      Peter D 2 months ago

      @Fernanda M.B. There's no doubt average pay is lower in the UK than the US. I was questioning your comparison of London and the US. It's very easy for the unskilled to be poor in both New York and London. At least in London healthcare is not a worry and they get 5 weeks paid holiday.

    • Fernanda M.B.

      49% of Americans earn less than $30,000 a year and the average salary in inner London is $44,473. Only 30% of Americans earn the same as the average person in London.

    Or Boston or Vancouver to NYC, for the same reason.
    But NYC is a nicer city if you like modern transport and seasonal weather.
    London is nicer if you dont mind walking more and prefer lots of green spaces.
