New York, we love you, and even though you may bring us down sometimes, there’s no place we’d rather be. (This is Time Out New York, after all.) Our colleagues at Time Out London will try to convince readers this week that their city is better, but we’re not buying it—do they have the Empire State Building, or Central Park, or New York–style pizza? No? We rest our case. Read on for 50 reasons why we think NYC is the greatest city in the world, along with reasons from some of our favorite New Yorkers (including Mayor Bloomberg, Emma Straub, Dave Hill, Bridget Everett and Garrett Oliver). And we want you to weigh in too: Use the Twitter hashtag #NYCIsTheGreatest to sound off on why you think NYC is the greatest city in the world.—Edited by Amy Plitt
