Whether it’s a popularity contest or a statistical competition for the number one city in America, New York wins in a landslide.
Although no one had to tell us that the Big Apple is simply the best among the top 40 cities in the country, the U.S. Office of Management and Budget calculated the following factoids just to make sure: Living cost, job growth, coolness, culture, online dating, nightlife and single life (forbes.com).
The ranking system ranged from 1-40, and New York City ranked in the top 5 in 5 out of 7 categories (forbes.com). Living cost and job growth were our lowest rankings of the event, but everything that the city has to offer makes up for them in a fashionably grandeur way.
Once you equate the exceptionally diverse and high-quality cuisine, world-renowned museums, celebrity-ridden night clubs, and newly anointed online dating capital, it’s easy to see why living in the greatest city in America is costly- location, location, location (forbes.com). However, up and coming locations around the Island of Manhattan such as Astoria Queens, and the artsy areas of Brooklyn are inexpensive and only a subway away from the flagship of NYC.
As for job growth, the city that never sleeps has been working around the clock in order to create new opportunities. ‘Green’ occupations are on the rise and we can only hope that the unemployment percentage can benefit from them while they enjoy the coolest people, music, and vibe in the U.S.
