NYC is actually much denser overall, and while much of that peak density is within Manhattan, there are also several bustling, dense nodes that are not part of Manhattan.

Also, where did you find the 9.4 million people stat for London?

Fuggedaboudit, spaghetti and meatballs, Sunday gravy at Nonnas and a real slice of New York pie, right paisano? Lmao...

I actually live in Florida now, but I go back to NY often...and the feel and vibe is much less intense in NY than it is in London. I didn't go to London with the purposes of comparing, it's just something I observed when I was there, and I was correct.

"Yo Joey, dis guy ain't a real New Yorker. Real New Yorkers only hangout in da neighborhood Joey. I ain't left Bensonhurst since foreva! Fuggedaboudit fugazi!!" Lmaooo.... too funny.

LOL Nothing correct about your statement. If you went back to NY so often then why did you need a week in the city to figure out how it stacks up against London?

Hmm me thinks someone is Full of Ish!!! Keep telling yourself different, you are in the vast minority.

And if you are from here, then you must've been living in a bubble.

By comparison, While NYC is urban and still sees redevelopment, low immigration numbers doesn’t help it and neither does statewide policy that generally supports suburban development.

Also going to Nee York during Covid is generally a bad idea when talking about looking for vibrancy.
This was pre-Covid.

Hey Fugazzi, how youse doin?...lmaoo... I go back to New York all the time, family is still there...and I travel to London about once a year. It's something I've notice in my travels recently (pre-Covid). When you travel and spend a considerable amount of time in different cities, especially internationally, and especially cities that are often compared, like New York and London, you make observations. I've noticed similar things about other cities as well, not just New York and London.

"Joey, dis guy liderally went to New York for a week, den he went to London to compare. Dis guyz a real strunz. We'll make sure da Gambinos neva invite him to Nonnas for Sunday gravy!! Dat'll show dis fugazzy!" Lmaooo....dying..

Agreed. That's a good assessment of London.

I don't think it's right to say comparing London to New York is like comparing Indianapolis to San Francisco. London is like NYC, LA, and DC at the same time. Here is the borough(including town) of Croydon in South London. It's 11 miles (55 min drive time) from the City of London(central business district). London is around 15,000 ppsm, but because of the way it is constructed(most European cities seem to be this way) and its populations, it looks just as bit as dense as NYC overall.( I still think Manhattan provides a more grander urban experience.)

What meant by saying Indianapolis and San Francisco being equal is that the city proper populations are roughly the same. It’s the same argument he is making about the size of London when NYC is obviously more dense and more populated on a metro level. That being said, density does not necessarily equal vibrancy.

Another wannabe who hates NY so much that he claims to have lived here and yet knows nothing about it. Yet at the same time claims to think London is superior and "on another level"

What a joker.

And you see that their count for Greater London (the boroughs that comprise what is generally referred to as London) is 8,961,989.

TBH - most Londoners have a close affinity to NYC, and even a great deal of love for their sister city.

Both cities are fantastic cities and both are vast cities.

Which one someone prefers is merely down to personal opinion and personal preference.

The difference between the cities make them more interesting and they are both better at different things, as well as having many things they both excel at.

I've lived in NYC (Manhattan) and still travel there regularly, and have travelled to London dozens of times on business and pleasure trips. In my experience, there is no where in London that matches the dense, frenetic, dynamism of Manhattan. Not a knock on London by any means. I love being in London. But it's just not on the same level as NYC from this perspective.
