    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.

      Traveling through London is like traveling the world, when I go to south east LDN(woolwich, Peckham etc), it’s like going to west Africa with the majority being Nigerian or Ghanaian but when you go to southwest/sth central (Brixton,Norwood, tulse Hill, etc) it’s like going to the Caribbean with Brixton being the birthplace for Jamaicans that settled in the 1950’s.
      north London is another large Caribbean and African community with areas like Edmonton, Enfield,Tottenham and Wood Green but North London has many posh areas in the hills like Hampstead,Golders green and Belsize Park but Camden is a market town and a home for nightlife (Camden town and Kentish Town only)
      But when you go to East London, you will see the traditional East End values in dockside areas like poplar and bow but East London is a very diverse place except tower hamlets having the highest concentration of Muslims in London, but I come from the most diverse part of London,Newham, with Hispanics and Portuguese in Stratford, Caribbean’s in Plaistow, Africans in Canning Town, Sikhs in forest gate, Hindu-Indians in manor park,Sri Lankans in little ilford, Urdu-Pakistani in Upton Park, Bengali’s in East Ham and Eastern Europeans in Beckton. But as you go towards the outer suburbs, the diversity tends to lower in those areas (except Croydon,Harrow and Hillingdon) but usually, in outer boroughs(boroughs with non E,SE,N,NW,W or SW postcodes) , the population is more white than other ethnicity’s, overall I think London is the best city in terms of diversity,culture, tourism and history

    Comparing NYC with London is like comparing a modern city with a small village. London is very provincial, there is absolutely no comparison with NYC. NYC is the capital of the world. NYC has the Wall Street, Harlem, Museums, insane diversity, giant skyscrappers, iconic buildings and so on. London is just a small city, small buildings, nothing to see there. The only people who write London in the comments are all British or other Europeans. No sane person who have visited both cities could possibly say London is ''better'' than NYC, unless they have some weird definition of ''better''. If by 'better' you mean tiny and irrelevant, then yes, London is better.

    Hello White world I have been studying the population demography of your country for few months and it seems horrible to know that the whites have forgotten the fact they are white and are mixing up with any race easily that they can soon come in the list of extinct species. Wake up! Save your country and your race. Stop the divorce rate, interracial marriages and start producing lots of white babies. You need to bring up the white percentage rate to 90%. Cheers!

    London is getting better all the time. There is so much development going on there. New skyscrapers going up constantly, redevelopment of the kings Cross, Wembley, Nine Elms, Stratford, Elephant and Castle and Grenwich areas. Tottenham Hotspur have just had a state of the art stadium built, which will also host NFL (American Football). Crossrail, a major new underground line, is also almost complete and will make travelling around London even easier and less congested.

    I've from West Virginia, I watched videos of going to NYC and London, how even getting there on an airplane. I find NYC a better state, place and a better city because you can see the SOL (Statue Of Liberty), the bulidings, even a good place to live. I've watched so many films from the 1970s and 1980s that take place in New York City. It is way better than London. London was a messy place due to the Swinging Sixties existed in 1960-1970, after Swinging Sixties ended, it has gotten better there but New York is still the best after all this time.

    London, UK.

    I've never been to London but my trip to New York was quite something. When I got there, I felt so small compared to those massive buildings. There was a lot to do in the Big Apple such as going to the top of the rock which is at the top of the Rockefeller Center (I also went to the Empire State Building; the Rockefeller Center was better), went on a helicopter ride, broadway, and general sightseeing. The Statue of Liberty was underwhelming, honestly, it's a tourist trap.
    My family could be going to London in the next year or so. I wonder how it will be.

    London, or places close by, used to be handy if shopping for those hard-to-find items. It remains the case that certain specialist tech items are in such little demand that it is uneconomical for shopkeepers to stock them. However, thanks to the rise of the internet, you can get whatever you want without leaving home.
