Melbourne: There is good news for young people residing in New York City or planning to move to the city as it has been named top city for youth.
According to a survey, the New York City grabbed the top spot in the world’s top 55 cities for youth list followed by London and Berlin, News.com.au reported. Sonja Miokovic, co-founder of Youthful Cities said that half of the world’s population is under 30 years old and half now live in cities and youth and cities especially the largest ones will together shape the future of the planet.
San Francisco, Paris, Toronto grabbed the next three spots in the survey conducted of over 10,000 people.
San Francisco was also ranked highest for environment and entrepreneurship.
