Best Cities to Live

The Economist Intelligence Unit — the city rankings specialists — has a new list claiming the best cities to live.

  1. Hong Kong
  2. Amsterdam
  3. Osaka
  4. Paris
  5. Sydney
  6. Stockholm
  7. Berlin
  8. Toronto
  9. Munich
The top ranked city in the U.S. was Washington, D.C. (14), followed by Chicago (15), New York (16), Los Angeles (17), and San Francisco (18).
Nice to see Chicago rated so highly. Ratings are always controversial and what criterion are chosen can be debated.  I like Hong Kong and Amsterdam but don't agree that they are such great places to live.
