The ranking that I consider to be the most relevant is the Global Cities Index:

New York
London
Paris
Tokyo
Hong Kong
Los Angeles
Chicago
Beijing
Singapore
Washington

Sounds about right to me. See that it was already posted.

"All in", I think your list is pretty reasonable. I'd switch Tokyo and Paris, but otherwise, it looks pretty accurate.

Combined Aggregate of City Rankings

But in contest for one metro to rule them all, New York takes the crown as the most economically powerful metropolitan, according to my assessment of five recent comprehensive rankings of global cities. London is second, followed by Tokyo and Chicago. The former tops the ranks of the most economically powerful cities in Asia, though Seoul, Hong Kong, Singapore and Shanghai also rank highly. Paris, LA, DC and Boston also show strength.

To save time from posting individual rankings, there are 206 city surveys and Jones Lang LaSalle compounded all of them and overall, New York is the winner.

^ The above of course is just another survey. Incidentally the many polls cited here are at odds with your earlier declarative 'hands down' claim re New York.

I see all these reports and surveys that people keep posting, it seems you can find a study to suit whichever city you want.

London vs New York City? Both are as good as each other, with plenty of similarities and differences! Both pretty much have everything going on within them... So hard to chose between such great, word class cities!
