40-odd cities allegedly better than New York
: One of those oft-quoted surveys of livability has just been released. New York has been used as the baseline (though after 9.11, they would have lowered our score). So there are between 44 and 48 cities in the world allegedly better to live in than here.
Now I should launch into some loyalist screed about New York right now but I do have to admit that I love a lot of cities on the list: Toronto, Vienna (there soon), Berlin, Stockholm, Munich, Montreal, Seattle, L.A. Hey: What’s San Francisco doing there? Ok, maybe I will launch into my parochial screed… [via Aardvark]
