    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.

    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 ....

    NYC is far more multi cultural. Queens is the most diverse place on the planet. The food , the music, the beaches, the street life blows London away. And the women are diverse and beautiful. You can't get good pizza in London.

    People like London more, because the so called British morals, how they are very polite, considerate, well mannered, blah blah blah, its all lie people, you go for a drink with them after work, they will be abusing you, showing you their colours. At least in NY I know where I stand with the pricks that confront me straight away, rather than giving me a fake smile, without grinning teeth... then talk behind my back....

  • sivan ferna
    sivan ferna Month ago

    I haven't lived in either city but I do spend a lot of time researching both and from what i have gathered
    1. London is more sophisticated, classy and even more international
    2. NYC is more entrepreneurial, hustle, and put on the biggest and best of everything
    3. London wether is moderate which I like but doesn't get much sun, nyc gets a lot more sun and has all 4 seasons
    4. Obviously british vs american culture, I like both but prefer american
    5. London tube is a lot better than nyc subway
    6. London seems to combine a kind of cozy feeling while also having great city life, nyc has a super dense core and then it sprawls
    Maybe someone can confirm if this is accurate

    NYC = More fun, better food, cheaper public transport
    London = More Sophisticated, cleaner subway system, richer history
    I live in LA, so to me, I have no dog in this fight. But for every tic there's a tac when comparing the two. London and NYC are both brilliant cities with incredible people and cultures.

    London and the city of London are different things. A bit like a smaller version of New York City and New York. New York is the state, like London is the whole county, and New York City and the City of London are both, well, the city parts.

    Lived in London for a year as a part of my gap year after high school. Inspiring city to live in, but with an monthly salary of a little over a 1.000 pounds (minimum wage) I get why many people find it difficult to establish a stable lifestyle with the ridiculous rent-rates and high transportations fees. As I would imagine with New York, London is a pay-to-play kind of city. Despite it being one of the best experiences, It made me appreciate living in Copenhagen so much more.
