York is generally higher than Glasgow on the overall scales it's about number 12 in the UK.
However they are both Russell Group universities which tends to be a group of very prestigious universities also in the UK so you wouldn't be wrong to go to either exactly. For Mathematics specifically Glasgow is higher but it depends who's site you look at. The complete university guide is the one I normally use, however you'll most likely find something different on the Guardian. Again, both good universities so you can't go wrong really, if you can at all come over to the UK I think booking a visit day would be a good idea because then you could really get a feel for which one you might prefer from just being there. If necessary resort to pictures online too to try and get a feel for it. Check out as much course stuff on their individual websites as possible to be well informed.
Look on this website too it has opinions on lots of universities from the actual students there themselves, Glasgow and York will be on here too:

I think York would definitely be more expensive to live in, however it's also a very very pretty place to be! Location is important too. Since Glasgow is in Scotland it's going to be colder than York, although York will still be cold... Depends what kind of weather you're into.
Ultimately it's down to personal preference, but they are good university choices so I think you will be fine. Remember your university time is meant to be the best years of your life! So pick somewhere you really think that could happen! ^^

Massive good luck! I've also got an offer from York but for straight mathematics, so you have good taste there haha
