These are the most influential cities in the world

Every world traveler likely has a favorite city to visit, either for business or pleasure, but personal preferences aside, what’s the most influential city in the world? A consultancy firm ranked the world’s most influential cities—and no, we don’t mean influential on social media.

A.T. Kearny released their 2019 Global Cities Report, which evaluated factors such as “business activity, culture, human capital, political engagement and information exchange” in these various locations, according to Business Insider. Cities were then ranked based on their scores in each category.

And New York City nabbed the top spot on the list for the second year in a row. But are you really surprised? The Big Apple boasts a booming financial industry, it’s home to the United Nations, is one of the fashion capitals of the world, has a huge arts and theater scene…well, you know.
