No, London is not, NYC is. How delusional can you be? You can’t just say stuff that isn’t true to prop up your anti-American bias

No, it was methodically debunked as a troll post by someone who poked factual holes in the poster’s story and pointed out he had a history of trashing New York and anti-American posts.

It’s the typical City-Data anti-American boosterism you see - delusional posts as to London’s greatness, and how NYC is overhyped, and how Toronto or Montreal are the real heart of North America, not NYC.

He knows an awful lot about NYC, despite having never been to the US.

Interesting how quickly he dropped the Aussie angle as well.

He/She has also never been to London, with it's Georgian and Regency architecture, greenery and beautiful suburbs.

Most Londoners like London's sister city of NYC as well as Paris, and are not attacking them except in the mind of this troll, who constantly comes back under new accounts.

It's interesting to hear your perspective, but it's worth noting that London and New York City are both vast and dynamic metropolises, each with its unique charm and character. The perception of size can vary based on personal experiences and the areas of the cities one explores. Both cities have a lot to offer in terms of culture, history, and opportunities for exploration. It's all about finding what resonates with you in these incredible urban landscapes

A city is a build-up area. So if the Metro Area is a more logical representation of that, than I will use that. New York metro area is the largest in the world regarding square miles, so NY will automatically win in that regard.
Regarding the city core or the city proper, dependent on what you want to highlight, that might be more personal interpretation. London doesn't have all that water so that is denser, but Manhattan feels even denser, so that might compensate and balance it out.
