London To New York: You Suck. So, What’s The Best City Out There?
“New York has lost its edge,” claims The Times in London. We’re not exactly sure how London is in a position to judge the city where Frisky HQ is located, but their story is that NYC can’t compete anymore with the international creative scene, and that it’s become a land of losers (e.g., bankers). What was once the greatest city ever is basically a wasteland now: “Is New York still the centre of the Earth? Well, if your definition of the centre of the Earth is McDonald’s and Starbucks, then yes it is.”
Ouch. While most of us here complain about high rents, irritating hipsters, and a hellish subway commute, we wouldn’t be so quick to say that Americans have given up on “making the big move to the city” or having metropolitan dreams of Manhattan. Still, things change. So, we want to know—if you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? Which cities bite the big one, and which represent your perfect paradise? [Times Online]
