Then where have you found more cultured people? London? I'd say it's just about the same, if not less than NY
Though I would say NY and London are about the same, we do have a much much more decent accent, I mean in the UK if someone pronounced ask, past, grass, sarcastic, Atlantic, Milan etc. The way Americans do, you would think they come from a council estate or something... In addition, bars, clubs, etc. in London are by far the best in the world, (for restaurants, I must say NYC wins). In NYC one is likley to see many, so to say "Commoners" in such establishments, this certainly is not the case in London, at places like Opium, and Cafe De Paris. High society in London is also one of the finest. Though, Monaco, Geneva, New Delhi, and Hong Kong are the best. It realy depends on what aspects you look at. Places like London, and NYC may have the reputation, but turly one must look at places like, Florence, Rome, Paris, Geneva, Venice, and Monaco/St. Tropez for the most opulent places in the world... NYC is truly not opulent, London certainly is more so in terms of architecture.
