From classic OLD New York
to mega monster NEW New York!
This from Aleida Strowger at Time Out:
A panel of Time Out experts selected 75 cities to celebrate in the book the world's Greatest Cities according to six criteria: Architecture, Arts & Culture, Buzz, Food & Drink, Quality of Life and World Status. In conjunction with our local correspondents, the panel then awarded the cities scores in each category and totaled them up for an overall ranking. The results are both fascinating and often surprising.
But now we want to know, which city, or cities, do you consider to be the greatest in the world and why?
The World's Greatest Cities: from the Time Out shop.
Here are the top ten world cities as voted for by the Time Out panel:
1. New York, USA
Arts & culture: 10
Food & drink: 9
Quality of life: 6
World status: 9
