I've been to NYC, London, and Paris. Of these three, I'd have to choose London.

I hope to go to Tokyo this winter...

For me its Tokyo of course, then London as a very close 2nd (almost a tie), then Paris and New York as a toss-up for 3rd.

New York is the edgiest and most sensational.

Paris is the most cultured and beautiful.

Tokyo is the most advanced and technological.

London is the classiest and most royal.

Take your pick. :-)

From actual peer-reviewed studies available, the amount of additional radiation for denizens of Tokyo is not particularly dire though there was a change at one point for things to get a lot worse.

I have never been to Tokyo, but of the other three I'd have to say:
1) London
2) New York
3) Paris

Although I'm biased as I live in London, I see New York as an economic centre, Paris as a cultural centre, and London as a mix of both. But I love all three.

Because London and Paris are so close they are similar in terms of people.

1. London
It's expensive, but more international, more interesting fashion trends and art scene. City is more fun to walk around since the streets aren't simply in a grid pattern as they are in New York.

2. NYC / Tokyo
NYC has become a city for the rich and the ethnic enclaves who've been there for generations. The type of young, struggling artists who made the city interesting stopped coming because it became too expensive and cheaper cities with a similar crowd exist, like Austin, Portland, Oakland, and LA (parts of LA are really expensive, but there are areas that are decent and affordable compared to what you get for the same price in Brooklyn), and Berlin for those who can pull that off. A ton of indie bans still come to Brooklyn, but it's more so they have a chance to make it big, not because they grew organically from people they met there. Once they get popular, even though they advertise as being from Brooklyn, you'll only see them in big venues for $50+.

Tokyo
The Fukushima nuclear meltdown is a serious concern as it's ongoing, they're still dumping nuclear material into the ocean. That aside, Tokyo is pretty amazing. It doesn't have the beautiful architecture London and NYC has, but it feels more modern. There is a bit more to do at night for entertainment, like karaoke, or Internet cafes, or even arcades. People tend to dress conservatively, but well. You'll see all kinds of crazy and creative fashion in certain areas, which you won't find at all in New York. People are pretty polite and considerate. Don't have to worry about having loud neighbors. Incredibly safe. Crazy streets like London. Fantastic seasonal events like fireworks throughout August, cheery blossoms in spring. Less of an income gap, so you can actually afford to live close to cool parts of the city, though your room may be tiny with a view of a wall outside your window. That said, they could use a lot more greenery. You'll feel more like you don't fit in living in Tokyo in the long run than the other cities. It is insanely crowded. People tend to go to work in the same area, come home around the same time, get the same days and holidays off. Just have to learn to accept the crowds.

3. Paris. Haven't been.
