I'd like honest and detailed comparisons. In particular: Hawt Women (very mixed); Latitudes and climates (warm/temperate); Size of City (exploring); Nice people or highly skilled workers; and anything else you think is worth mentioning.

Thanks to all that chime in

As a LA native living and working in NYC, I can see myself splitting the rest of my life living between New York City and Los Angeles(may be including San Francisco as well) if I were extremely wealthy.

New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco are some of the very best cities on this planet.

I haven’t been to London and Dubai so I can’t comment on these two.

LA and London. New York is great but there's nothing you can't have there that you can't have in LA or London. You get better weather in LA, cleaner public transportation in London, and a bigger variety of weekend trips in both.

Different cities have different interesting characteristics and beauties and different people have different preferences. I’m not trying to argue about that. But as far as urban scale, culture, depth and variety are concerned, there is no where in the US that even remotely touches Manhattan. I don’t know about London though since I haven’t been there. But I have been to other cities like Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong and for me still New York City is the best above all on an urban level.

But at the same time, I agree LA(my hometown) offers better weather, access to outdoor activities and natural beauty. That is the reason I choose NYC and LA on this list. LA’s weather and natural beauty + NYC’s urban scale, depth, variety and culture, I honestly don’t think I can get anything better out of this world.

If I'm extremely wealthy, I don't care about public transportation as I'll have other means of transportation available to me as a primary means.

I do care about amenities, cuisine, taxes, personal freedom, and weather, among other things.

Its hard to go wrong as an extremely wealthy person in either of those cities I'd wager (the extremely wealthy often live by a different set of rules anyway), but I'd probably pick NYC and London.

Note, out of the extremely wealthy that I hear and read about in the news and on social media, it seems to be that people from Dubai and surrounding areas are taking more trips to Europe/USA than the reverse is true. This is similar to wealthy Chinese barons buying properties and sending their children to school in Europe/USA.

It is shown that New York is better Overall and has more Wealth than Los Angeles so I think Los Angeles is more laid back, is that true? However, London ranks Highest in Lifestyle.

Dubai's been labelled: The Future City but I've heard that the Islands are sinking, is that true?

New York and London for sure out of this list. LA screams car and I don't like the heat, Dubai runs on Islam code which is instant no for me and my girlfriend, and I know nothing of Stockholm and don't really have interest in Sweden.
