NYC is better if you want a real city. Dubai is better if you want to live in Disney city.

Dubai is to be commended. It's probably one of maybe three places in the Middle East I would actually feel "relatively" safe travelling to and spending money. I'd have to put the kabash on PDA though. However, in the grand scheme, Dubai in its current form is a Middle Eastern Macau or Las Vegas or Orlando. A theme park, dependent on development and tourism.

New York is dynamic and world class. Though newer than other first tier world cities (Paris, London, Tokyo), its pretty much a star, and people from all over the world can claim her as their own if they want and become "New Yorkers."

So...... New York over Dubai by a mile squared and to the fifth power!

Ok so i have being to neither city so cannot answer the posters question, and have absoulutly no intentions of living in either city . So from a strictly outsider looking in would be tourist I say new york by a mile. I see Dubia as a tackey place built soely for tourist dollars, which puts it way down my list of places to see, even in the middle east.

IF they will give the worker back his passport and allow him to leave at all.

NY by leaps and bounds.

I really hope this thread is a joke!

Dubai can not compare with NYC on any level. Dubai is a cultureless city built around oil, there buildings look very tacky. NYC is the melting pot of the world!
