New York City ranked best in the world in Time Out Magazine survey

NEW YORK (WABC) -- A new survey is telling us what we've known for years, New York City is the best city in the world!

Time Out Magazine and Tapestry Research quizzed 34,000 city-dwellers. They asked about food, drink, culture, music, nightlife, sociability, happiness, community, progress and attractiveness.

Researchers noted New York City's diversity, culture, and food and drinks.

"They don't call NYC the capital of the world for nothing," Time Out New York's Will Gleason reported. "Other cities beat it for specific factors, but it was the Big Apple that came out on top overall - in large part thanks to its ongoing diverse and accepting vibes. As the rest of America struggles with a rising wave of isolationism, New Yorkers voted their city the most diverse in the world, as well as number one for culture and two and three respectively for eating and drinking. Lady Liberty would be proud."

The top 10 cities out of 48, according to the survey, are New York, Melbourne, Chicago, London, Los Angeles, Montreal, Berlin, Glasgow, Paris, and Tokyo.
