A new Time Out survey has found New York to be the most exciting city to live in in 2019.

Tapping into over 34,000 anonymous city-dwellers in 48 locations around the world, it found that New Yoek was the place people most wanted to visit and live this year.

Factors including food, drink, culture, nightlife, community, neighbourhoods and overall happiness were taken into account.

Closely following New York was Melbourne, with Chicago in the third spot, while London came fourth.

Despite this news, there's been a spate of nightspot closures in NY as of late, with Highline Ballroom and Output shutting up shop - while the city recently elected its first nightlife mayor.
