Actually, census stats aside, if you count the illegals coming in every day, Los Angeles may very well be at the top.

new york for sure tops that list. i read that new york is the most diverse city in the world, toronto is 2nd, and london is 3rd. toronto surprised me, but after i read on it began to make sense. canada is a major immigrant landing spot, especially toronto due to the proximity to the new york border, niagara falls. canada is also very lenient on immigration, they're not as strict as america is. london is self-explanatory, it's close to many other countries.

los angeles is also a diverse city, but after you look it up, it's not all that diverse. it may have a large immigrant poulation, but 46.5% of the los angeles population is hispanic. i mean in new york, toronto, london, and chicago it's more evenly laid out.

there are illegals in every city though. chicago is said to have one of the largest illegal populations. but i wouldn't doubt if los angeles had the most although percentage-wise i think vegas may beat it out. or el paso or something. possibly miami. ah who knows.

i hear that we may be building a big wall along the mexican border though... does anybody know what that's about? it makes no sense. i mean if you're in tijuana or something and there's a wall blocking your entrance into america, couldn't you just go to the beach, swim out 3 feet, and go around the wall that way? i mean seriously? if the wall does go up, they'll just do what cubans do to get to america but they won't have to go a hundred miles, it could just be a 10 second swim.

Roadfix - New York can do as well or better in that area. Just my opiinion.

West village - More proof that anything can be spun anyway desired. That is NOT to say that I am defending the numbers that I posted. Just a few quick searches.

I would like to live in Mississippi or Louisianna. My living is in NYC, so I'm here. I do love the city, though.

The most important city in America is Vista, California because our grandkids are there!

I have to admit I loved NYC! Didn't like the prices though. We spent more on one night's hotel room than our monthly house payments. Of course we could have found cheaper, farther out, but ours wasn't the most expensive, by far. You have to make good money to live in NYC!
