The only cities that really compare to it are London, Paris, and Tokyo. The most significant statistic in comparing the importance of cities is population. New York City is comparable with London and Paris but not Tokyo - which crushes every city with a Metropolitan Population of over 30 million people. NYC has around 20 million.

What makes New York better than Tokyo is its diversity. NYC has Jews, Italians, Irish, African-Americans, Germans, Syrians, Indians, Puerto Ricans, Domincans, Polish, Russians, Guatemalans, Chinese, Koreans, etc., etc. Its the true melting pot. Almost every ethnicity you can think of. Only London compares to NYC in ethnicity i think.

Tonight I got a cab home from midtown Manhattan to NJ from a regular taxi driver. He was not your average 'towel head' cabi. He was from Nepal! He was from a small village near Mount Everest! How many cities, let alone places on earth, can you get a cultural lesson and history lesson, on your way home (which cost me $40) from getting drunk at a bar?

new york has jews ! yay!

you're totally overrating the diversity in new york .. I mean fuck, I live in Rotterdam and about 60% of the city's population is either born abroad or has parents born abroad, 40% of the city is black and 25% is muslim
WTF do you want more? white people are the only ones who rip you off in shops, my last cab driver was a turk who's wife is from brazil, my flatmate is an indian called Ashish, I hosted a lebanese guy in my room for 2 weeks, I'm puffin buddah with greeks every tuesday, I held strong philosofical discussions on shrooms with a black norwegian and when people approach you on the street they first ask you if you speak dutch even though they're in their own fuckin country lol ... so tell me what more fuckin diversity do you want kthxbye

NY has plenty of ghettos but thats not all there is...
& no, if you come to NY dont go to the bronx, its not all that.
manhattan & queens have the most things.
