I wonder how Taipei measures up to the other capitals in the region, as far as street activity is concerned.

My only concern is that my idea of good street life seems to be different from yours. I think New York is spectacular from a distance, but a bit of an underwhelming experience up close.
You're putting too much weight on what I said about midnight, it was just one of few the factors I considered. What is your idea of good street life?

New Orleans hasn't been mentioned yet. Obviously, it's more confined to parts of the GD, and the FQ, but those two are undeniably spectacular.

Where would you rank Seoul then? I've not been to many of the cities that have been listed in this thread, but I've been to New York and Paris, and I would say that Seoul's street life is superior to those two. Not to mention, I think that Seoul is quite a bit safer than those other two as well. I know that some people like the "edgy" vibe that some cities give off, but I'm not one of them. The feeling of personal safety that I had in Seoul, even when walking out and about somewhat late into the night, was a very pleasant revelation for me.

1. New York City
2. Buenos Aires
3. Cuzco
4. Lima
5. Cordoba

Bit ironic Hipsters complaing about gentrification, given that they were the ones who gemtrified Hoxton and Shoreditch in the first place.

Would Rep you but it won't let me at the moment.

And it's ALL NIGHT--truly a city that never sleeps.

Hell's Kitchen (the area you described) is a really fun area. Easily the best in Midtown IMO, but I think the best street life activity in NY is in Lower Manhattan. Most notably places like the villages, LES, SoHo, Meatpacking, and Union Square area.

I've never been to New Orleans, but was going to suggest it. Vegas also has great street life too, at least the strip and Fremont.
