NYC Was Voted The #1 ‘Dream City’ In The U.S.

Cinch Home Services conducted a survey asking 1,067 people to find out which are for them the top dream cities in the US. It should come as no surprise that New York ranked first in a total of ten top US cities, as this city is a top travel destination in the world with millions of visitors annually.

But what are the criteria that one takes into account to conclude what is for him the dream city? According to this research, the aspects of a dream city include many different things of everyday life:

• Culture
• Entertainment options
• Green spaces and outdoor activities
• Job opportunities
• Warmer climate
• Dining options
• Diversity
• Family and friends
• Public transportation
• Cooler climate
• Quality of education

This study also showed that it is not always easy to live in the city of your dreams as many people reported that they had to make many sacrifices to afford the expensive way of life in such a city.
And what did these people really sacrifice to stay in such a city? Among the most popular answers are:

• Dipping into savings
• Only going out once per week
• Living off cheap food
• Sacrificing vacation days for extra money
• Working a second job
