I lived in both London and NYC each for more than 15 years and the different between the two is the British are biased if you don't speak their language after living in Britain for years. In NYC, I have traveled around and can say that while living there, if you are middle/upper class black, brown or biracial you be lucky to catch a taxi in NYC on your own! All that melting pot and what do we get in most communities like the hood for example? More white firemen who don't even live in the area and right now things are so bad, that the real true colors of most NYC politicians are showing. I couldn't care less if this city is more diverse than this city because at the end of the day what is more important is living side by side in peace. Melbourne wasn't even name up there and I know for a fact other cities around the world are more multiracial and multicultural than NYC since I have traveled around and know people in those cities. My family wanted to move to the west coast in America but I'm looking at Nevada, Florida and Georgia. Right now just read that many Americans half not even retired are moving out of the country to more peaceful cities around the world. That speak volumes that we're tired of the b.s. drama and very aware that for most people in power it's all about themselves not us who just wanted a peaceful lifestyle without the flamethrowers around instigating racial and race conflicts in cities that are supposedly diverse in America.

Forgot to mention that me and my family are looking at moving abroad too. Also it was reported not too long ago how the true crime rate in NYC been manipulated and many people wasn't happy about that.

However, obviously US cities have different histories, more hostile racial relations, etc, however, Toronto is quite impressive in a certain regard- I was just there & taken aback by how civil & integrated people were, that was my perspective having lived in various big US cities.
F1000, that is exactly what a member of my family said about Toronto, Canada. I lived long enough in NYC to come across too many people who are rude and if anybody don't think so, try taking public transportation and watch how most people jump you, don't give seats up to pregnant women, disabled people or the elders.

No mention of any Australian cities.Both Sydney and Melbourne are diverse and the others beoming so..although not yet on the level of London or New York.
London is by far the most diverse in Europe. I would imagine Paris would come in at second followed by Amsterdam.
Did not find Berlin so diverse,many other cities in Europe have a single large minority,for example Marseilles(North Africans)Bradford(UK)(Pakistanis)etc but don't have the diversity.

I was going to say any of the Australian capital cities. If you go to the CBD of Adelaide or Melbourne it seems more than 50% of the people are Asian, similar with Perth, Sydney and the Gold Coast with all those tourists. Melbourne has become even more diverse, with no just Asians (that includes Indians), but other groups like South Americans started to be more represented.

Australian cities are becoming thankfully more diverse,but becoming is the key word,perhaps,here.
Indeed Melbourne and Sydney have large Oriental populations with the other cities also becoming more numerous,especially Perth.
During the recent past few years a big growth can be seen in the Indian sub continental population,but taking that into account i would say there is not the diversity at this stage,not by a long shot,when compared to New York, LA,London,Paris,Toronto,Vancouver,etc.(few African,West Indian,Middle Eastern,and South American/Latinos very small representation

I think Dallas, Texas seemed very diverse and integrated. Abroad I'd have to say London. One place I found pretty integrated also was Bermuda which I had just visited.

Los Angeles was very diverse but not integrated. The Hispancis and blacks are mostly poor and live in separate neighborhoods. Whites and Asian are mostly wealthy and live together but don't seem to socialize together much. In California it is common for people to not have a single good friend from a different race which I found very shocking and unusual having traveled across America. Many places I've visited where segregation used to be enforced by law seem more integrated today.....in terms of seeing mixed groups of friends socializing, mixed marriages and dating, etc. Here in Maryland many parts of the state have some bad history in the civil rights era but if you take a community with sizable numbers of both black and white people, most people will have at least 2-3 good friends who are of a different race which isn't always true in the parts of California or New Jersey I've visited! With large immigrant communities in LA and the NY area I think that allows for a lot of self-segregation which perpetuates itself in the second generation not connecting with mainstream society and a more and more fractured culture.

Someone said Miami....I'll be visiting in January and have only passed through on the way once from the airport to the cruise ship. I don't know how the Hispancis and the white Americans interact, or if there are large black or Asian populations there.
