Someone just left me a rep message saying "You're Singaporean, why don't you talk about London and New York in that thread in the world forum since your people seem to love them both".

It's true, we Singaporeans do love London and New York and both of them are my favorite cities in the entire world with Hong Kong as a third runner up. I'm half Singaporean and half Asian Indian. I give the edge to New York, its had more life and excitement at all times of the day than did London based off my experience. New York's level of vibrancy is hard to match and its just a hugely cosmopolitan place which is what I love the most about it. New York is the epitome of everything great about the United States all in one place, to hate New York is to hate the United States. The cosmopolitan attribute to New York and London are on a different tier than Paris and much higher than Tokyo, which is very Japanese and lacking in cosmopolitanism/ethnic diversity.

I see someone has already posted pictures of New York so I don't need to, well at least until later because those pictures do no justice to the vibrancy of the city. I cant help but notice that London is the underdog here, so I'll share some pictures of that city.

I'm 22 years old and I still have a while left but my goal is to live in either New York, London, or Hong Kong and to secure it by age 25. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else in the world if I was going to leave Washington DC.

London

New York is probably the easiest to transition to, since its just a 4-hour drive from DC. I agree it's best to do it at your age before you start having a family and children.

I'm going to go with Tokyo. I love the technological feel of it and just Japanese culture in general.

My favorite major city in Europe is probably Warsaw, and in America it would probably be Chicago.

I won't vote because I've only been to NYC, but I have major interest in visiting and knowing more about the other 3 cities also. I'm sure they all have their pros and cons, and there is something in each city for everyone.

Yeah. I dug around a little bit and I'm thinking it's The Shard(?)

For a second there I thought it looked like a finished building with a statue on top.
