I doubt it. Most of North East US is pothole hell. If there's a difference it's hardly noticeable. Especially if you factor in NJ being a densely populated corridor state and the freeze thaw cycles. Not to mention NJ has its fair share of toll roads.

As I love both cities, the only thing I can say is that the rest of the world does appear to favour London as it is the world's most popular city going by tourist numbers.

It is also the preferred home of the world's wealthy, who pile into the London property market in droves.. But that being said, reading a nice book in a post-war high ceiling apartment overlooking central park is hard to beat to me.

In short both great towns
Agreed. Both cities have their merits. If I was to choose my favorite it would be down to personal preferences. I prefer history and culture and that makes London more interesting and stimulating to me.

As far as I can see all the obnoxious defensive posting is coming from New Yorkers/Amercans.

London has its fair share of street preaching. If that amounts to "shoving religion down your throat" I would say you're the one with the insecurities and problems. The race baiting and bipartisan politics is a big problem though I agree.

The only way dunce atheists of the post-millennial age will regard religion to not be 'shoving itself down their throats' is when it doesn't exist at all. With Anglo-American colleges now becoming more religious they're going to have that 'shoved down their throat' feel quite a lot into the foreseeable future if they seek to enter any higher specialty.

Outside of our universities, London is the only part of the country where religion is on the rise incidentally.

I don't see too much "Religion shoved down the throat" going on in America. If anything it is the opposite. The religion is the root of all problems, wars, etc crowd is doing most of the shoving down the throat. I'm not very religious at all , but I would take the religious crowd over the self righteous politically correct crowd anyday.

This is non sense. England has these same issues.

No Allan it doesn't. Our last government was a coalition of liberals & conservatives, they came together during the recession to govern in the national interest, something America seem incapable of ever achieving.

As for racism, well its far worse in the states don't you think? look at Charleston, Montgomery, Baltimore etc just look at some of the posts on this thread from Americans confirming that fact. Also in the UK you can visit your church, the cinema, or a school without the fear of being shot dead by a lunatic with a gun.

Though race is a problem in both countries, it is far more of a "hot topic" in the states than in the UK thanks to the incredibly incompetent (by design?) corporate media. Those disparities become blunted when comparing the two cities concerned.

Astana looks straight out of a 80 Sci-fi film, most planned cities really look futuristic

In terms of degrees/extremities, this is actually fairly untrue not just in England but in almost all developed countries.
