Travel and Leisure Thinks NYC is Swell: #6 in the World, # 1 in the US


Travel and Leisure just released their 2007 “World’s Best Awards”, ranking the best cities, hotels, airlines, cruises, etc. worldwide. Here’s a breakdown of the Top 10 Cities:

  1. Florence
  2. Buenos Aires
  3. Bangkok
  4. Rome
  5. Sydney
  6. New York
  7. Udaipur, India
  8. Istanbul
  9. San Francisco
  10. Cape Town

New York is up two slots from our ranking last year as #8, a testament to the fact that the world knows just how awesome this city is!

I’m positively dismayed to have only visited two of the cities on this list (the other being San Francisco) That will need to be rectified stat–as soon as I can get the taste of my last international flight out of my mouth.

Also interesting to note, only two other cities on this list currently have Metblog sites, Bangkok and San Francisco.

Check out T&L’s take on what makes our city so list-worthy. Also, make sure to check out their Top 50 NYC restaurants.

If you’ve been to any other cities on the top 10 list, how do you feel NYC stacks up against them?
