...Or Zurich, or Geneva, or Munich, or Frankfort, or Bern, or any of the other cities that made up the top 25 cities to live in the world, according to Mercer.
In what is indeed a sad commentary, no U.S. city is to be found in the top 25. You have to go down to 31 (Honolulu). I have never lived in a city, so I don't wish to come across as an authority on what constitutes living in a good city. However, I would venture to say that easy access into and out of the city, and transit around the city that is as less dependent as possible on cars, would probably be a strong personal factor for me into living in any city. The U.S. is particularly lacking in these categories, so it doesn't surprise me that not one placed in the top 25.
