It is. Because it goes to the poorest areas, both north and south-east. And poors always have improvements after the others unfortunately...

For Creil, that's simple, the situation of this city is more or less ... absolutely catastrophic. I think in the top 10 (8th position) of the worst/poorest cities in France that have more than 20K inhabitants. The unemployment is stratospheric.
30 487th position in term of average income/household if you take villages and cities with more than 50 inhabitants in France, out of 30 687.
It is litterally poorer than 99.34% of cities in France. Terrible and yes the poor RER D goes there.

Ok then. I've heard complaints.

And living is a different thing.

Careful what you wish for. There's a point when they begin to displace the native population and loses its charm. Venice is on the cusp of that.

New York City for sure.

NYC is great to visit, but it is way too expensive, has way too much crime and grimey in the 4.5 of the boroughs. And its dirty. If I was forced to live in the area I would chose like Oyster Bay LI, Greenwich CT, Around White Plains NY or like somewhere in North NJ like Livingston or Ridgewood.

What about Reykjavik? Has amazing nature and sights around the city, but also a nightmarish climate to go along with it

I visited Reykjavik recently. It looks like an alright place to live except for the climate and the ridiculous cost of living. On the plus side, it seemed very peaceful and cozy with beautiful scenery and natural attractions.

You must not be keeping up with the news. NYC is, and has been for a good number of years, the safest big city in America. It is statistically much safer than Boston, for example.
