    I pick Zurich, absolutely amazing place.
    Quiet, reserved, no skyscrapers, no tourist hotspots, completely simplistic...and yet manages to mainstain one of the best quality of life measures and is one of the top 5 top financial capitals of the world.

    Istanbul is in Turkey, honestly if you wanted to know so badly you should Google it.

    Why isn't Manchester a choice? God came down from the heavens and created Manchester on the 7th day. Manchester beat London in the living thing poll... in fact it is better placed to beat the recession than London and recently named 15th best city in the world.

    The only city I've lived in out of those choices is New York, when I was very young (from 2 to about 3 and half). I lived in Spanish Harlem which, to put it lightly, isn't the most appealing of places.

    I chose New York because the good outweighs the bad, but there are some nasty nasty parts!

    Rome?
    Hmm! Yea I can agree, maybe Rome deserves to be there but it's only really ranked in religious, historical and architectural terms, not really for the modern city criteria which most cities adhere to nowadays!

    Atleast during my brief research it was never named anywhere in 'league tables'.

    Modern city criteria suck. Rome is good, as is New York. Although I suppose Rome only ranks due to its impressive architecture- I strongly dislike Italians, do not trust them, not for a minute.
