NYC's climate is fine for the city. Sophisticated cities should not be too warm.

Well, weather that is too hot is not always conducive to dressing stylishly...

Does being on the coast mean Invercargill should be tropical feeling?

What about Auckland doesn't feel like it should be 16C and rain during winter?

Sochi, Russia

Planted exotic trees makes it look like a warm year round paradise but is actually
rainy with a cool winter, average winter highs only about 9 or 10C, not 16-17C like southern Spain,
or even 14-15C like the French Riviera, both much drier too.

In old days, hot places had very low productivity. Now with AC it has changed, and many companies like to station in warm places.

On street view Magadan, Russia looks somewhat warm.

but then you realize that the photo were taken in Jun rather than Apr
Climate Table

also this city looks older than it appears too, it was only founded in 1930, but the Stalinist architecture gives it a more classical feel.

and a look at how barren and cold it looks outside the city, remember this is in Jun.

That is true, Tuapse just to the north of Sochi, has vegetation that better represents the actual climate.

But nope Sochi looks like it is hundreds of miles further south.

Agreed, but they also shouldn't be too cool.

New York gets much more severe weather, and often very cold winters. As do lots of cities in North America such as Chicago and Toronto.

Yeah places like Greenwich Village, Fort Greene, Bed-Stuy, you woldn't expect them from New York's climate. These places look like they could be somewhere in Italy, not NYC
