Wrong. The most common cities are NYC, London, Hong Kong, Paris and the like, in both polls.

And again, they're not measuring what we're talking about in this thread. They're not listing city preferences for the wealthy.

This is what they state:

Over the past decade, The Wealth Report has ranked the cities that matter most to the world’s wealthy, based on where they live, invest, educate their children, grow their businesses, network and spend their leisure time. On all measures, year-in year-out, London and New York have vied for the two top slots. No other city comes close in terms of their breadth and depth of appeal.

This year, London has beaten New York for the second successive time to win the accolade of ‘most important city to UHNWIs’, according to the results of our Attitudes Survey of wealth advisors. Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Dubai repeated their competition for positions three to six.

Methodology is based on a meta-analysis of data provided by Wealth-X.

Basically it's an attitudes survey that ranks global cities according to the personal preferences of the sample population.

New York is the perfect place for stalking celebrities, if you are so inclined. I'm not saying that I recommend doing that though. ;-)

Kind of amazing in that way.
Yeah, that's actually a huge element of the city that makes me like it so much. In LA everyone is always in a car, and if you wanted to get from say Beverly Hills to Venice beach you almost NEED to be in a car. When you walk you can get a better feel for the city, and you are able to take in more. I think that might be why people form NYC feel such a strong connection to their city as opposed to car-centric places like San Diego, Phoenix, Houston, ect. (just a theory).

Just to play along, I selected San Francisco. I like the climate the most out of these cities.

London. Without hesitation. I'd have a nice estate in Belgravia, own a gold Bentley, and where tweed suits and monocles to my heart's content.

Pardon the delay, but that's precisely the point, isn't it ... The Anglo morons up north did the entire country in. Of course, living in the US as you and I do, there's no accounting for what happened subsequently here ... Livin' the "dream" in the U-S-A!

Anglo Morons Up North.

The North of England is full of people with Scottish, Irish, Nordic and many other types of ancestory. East Anglia just above London is the area moat linked with the Anglo Saxons.

Although I am not sure what all this genetics and racial background has to do with anything and sadly I see too much of it on this forum.
