From my experiances of visiting these places.

Palma, Spain
Glasgow and Edinburgh, Scotland
London, England
Dublin, Ireland
NYC

I know for sure that places like

Chicago
Seattle
Houston
Vancouver
Toronto

are diverse too.

Cape Town, South Africa
Chicago
NYC
LA
Toronto
London
Honolulu

All of these cities are racially/ethnically diverse cities. Honolulu is probably the most integrated out of the list.

You just have to go to Glasgow or Edinburgh and your the minority. Hopefully not as bad as London though.

It also helps that these cities are very cosmopolitan, up and coming and have brilliant universities.

NYC wins hands down though

I would have to thrown in New Orleans as a racially, ethnically and culturally diverse. Im not sure how to quantify integration though especially considering all the relocations after the hurricanes.

The most diverse in the sense of having many cultures is probably toronto. There is one community called Jane and Finch that is only a few blocks big and is home to more than 100 different languages. However the cultures do not really interact with each other and non native Canadians practice self segregation.

I tend to think that Houston is more diverse or NYC just because Canada takes so few immigrants from Africa and latin america

My hometown, a bordering suburb of New York City is pretty diverse. According to the Board of Education, its students come from households speaking 80 different languages in the home.

It has only 68,000 people in four square-miles, so it is not bound to show up in a poll like this but it proves that you don't have to be New York City, London, Toronto or Singapore to be diverse.

This is the breakdown:

* Black or African American - 60%
* West Indian (excluding Hispanic groups) - 17%
* Jamaican - 13%
* Italian - 11%
* Irish - 4%
* Trinidadian - 3%
* Puerto Rican - 3%
* German - 3%
* Portuguese - 2%
* Mexican - 2%
* Other Hispanic or Latino - 2%
* Sub-Saharan African - 3%
* Asian Indian - 2%
* Brazilian - 2%
* Polish - 1%
* West Indian - 1%
* Haitian - 1%
* South American - 1%
* Dominican Republic - 1%
* English - 1%
* Guyanese - 1%
* Russian - 1%
* Barbadian - 1%
* Central American: - 1%
* British West Indian - 1%
* Greek - 1%
* Colombian - 1%
* French (except Basque) - 1%
