If you were very wealthy and had the chance to have a home in 4 cities, anywhere in the world, where would they be?

For me, it would probably be:
1) Miami
2) NYC
3) Cannes/St-Tropez
4) tough call between Florence, Barcelona, Beirut and Buenos Aires...
Should be fun to hear all the different answers and why!
That will be easy 1)Foxburg, PA I would buy the Fox Manor it is 1200 acres and a couple of incredible homes and it borders 2 rivers cost 20 million.
2)Niagara Falls Ontario, Canada
3)Germany
4)London, England
I'm not into the tropical paradise, I like to have changing seasons and these places are beautiful

West LA: Despite being against a lot of the "LA attitude" , I've also got an interest in movies, and if I had a lot of money in the bank, I'd make a serious attempt to break into the film industry as a writer/producer.

Manhattan: I imagine having a penthouse here would be awesome.

Amsterdam: My European base of operations. Seems like a pretty cool place, I like the waterways, and I'd definitely enjoy the coffehouses- I just love a good espresso

Puerto Rico: I'd have a big beach compound, with a guest house so my family could come down too.

Only four???

1. San Francisco. Either a larger, proper house in the Presidio/Laurel Heights/Richmond District areas, a penthouse in one of the newer towers in SOMA, or a really, really slick loft somewhere.

2. Cote D'Azul, France - Just because it's that damn beautiful. My other places would be pretty urban, and I think it's a good idea to have at least something outside the core to chill. May as well be white, sandy beaches, blue water, gorgeous women, yachts. Totally the antithesis of my working-class Boston sensibilities, but hey... it's not selling out, it's buying in

3. Tokyo. Shinjuku would be pretty slick. Who wouldn't love to wake up at 12pm, roll out of a Vegas king-sized bed, see all of Tokyo spread out hundreds of feet below and then take the elevator down to your R34 Skyline GT-R Vspec Nur to go get some curry rice and potato croquettes?

4. Mayfair, London. Not much more needs to be said....

That is true.

But it also seems like plenty of people listed some of the same places and similar places in general.

Interesting list.

Yeah, it also was difficult for me to pick just 4.
I have many places in competition for being the 4th place.

I am not surprised about San Francisco, London, and Tokyo for your list.
However, I am surprised by option 2 that you picked with Cote D' Azul France/Southeastern France Riviera.

My list was similar to yours with having some major very urban cities on my list and having the possibility of a smaller city/nature area too.


This was my list:

4. I am undecided about my 4th option but it is ONE of these possibilities that are all competing for 4th place:
-Shanghai China
-San Francisco USA
-Vancouver Canada
-Chicago USA
-London England
-A nice small town in a world class nature scenery area.

If I were super rich, I'd have a custom built yacht with a heliport that could go to virtually any place on the planet.

I've never been to the Riviera, but have always wanted to. Someday, hopefully... the main draw to me is that yes, it is much - much - quieter and more relaxed than three dense international centers. I love livin' in the city (that's a reference to the band "FEAR" in case anyone was wondering), but on my days off, we go out to the middle of nowhere to decompress, and I always think how nice it'd be to have a place out there to come to. May as well be an epic middle of nowhere, right?

1.NYC 16
2.London 11
3.Hong Kong 9
4.Honolulu 7
5.Miami 6
6.Tokyo 6

Suprising for me that Rio got picked 3 times and Sao Paulo not even once.
Paris only got picked 3 times, kinda shocking.
