New City Livability Rankings

Here.

Never heard of Monocle Magazine, but their criteria and 3-month research consisted of:
  • International Connections/Quality Airport
  • Violent Crime (Lack Thereof - seeya most American Cities)
  • State Education & Healthcare
  • Hours of Sunshine/Avg.Temps
  • Cost/Quality of Public Transport
  • Local Media
  • Access to Nature/Greenspace
Pretty good list. I would have to take some time to add to/subtract from it, if at all. The rankings:

1. Munich
2. Copenhagen
3. Zurich
4. Tokyo
5. Vienna
6. Helsinki
7. Sydney
8. Stockholm
9. Honolulu
10. Madrid
